How To Reset Your Worcester Home System

One perk of getting your security system hooked up by trained experts is that you rarely have to make major adjustments to it. However, there will likely be a couple situations where you have to reset your alarms in Worcester. If you’re utilizing a smart command panel, a reset typically needs only one or two button tap after occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Read The Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you try to reset your Worcester home security system, read your owner’s manual prior to proceeding. You wouldn’t want to compromise your property’s defense because you hit something incorrectly. Also, your system may change if you switched from a numerical keypad to a fully digital system. And if you can't reset your system, don't hesitate to reach out to the professionals.

Resetting Your Worcester Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm occurs due to the accidental tripping of a sensor. You are able to engage the control panel or open your ADT smartphone app and hit the shield image and enter your unique passcode to turn off the alarms for these instances. You might receive notification from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just tell them it was a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Worcester

If power is lost from a storm or other event, you might start hearing a beeping sound from your central command hub. This signifies that the alarm is being powered by the backup battery. To reset your unit and stop the steady beeps, you need to disarm/rearm the system.

Keep in mind, if you lose power for an extended time, you might need a complete system reset. Follow the instructions in the instruction manual -- usually by putting in your unique passcode and pressing the on/off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You may still hear chirps from the backup power, as it may not cease until the battery charges entirely. Call your security technician if you keep having problems with your ADT controls a day after power is restored.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

Occasionally you must change a battery in one of your security devices. When this needs to be done, you will set your alarm system to Test Mode so you prevent setting off an accidental alarm. After the you replace the old battery, remove the alarm panel from test mode and restore normal operations. If the system doesn't notice the component or the battery light is still on, you could have to perform a whole system reset.
