How To Reset Your Eugene System

One perk of getting your security system set up by professionals is that you hardly ever find a reason to concern yourself with it. Even so, there could be times when you have to reset your alarms in Eugene. If you use the ADT Command interface, a reset usually requires just a few minor taps of the touchscreen following common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Consult Your Owner’s Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

A word to the wise before you start resetting your Eugene home security system, consult your instruction manual ahead of time. You wouldn’t want to compromise your property’s defense due to pressing something incorrectly. In addition, your system might change if you upgraded from a numbered keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface. And if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't be reluctant to reach out to the professionals.

Resetting Your Eugene Security System After A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm happens because of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You may engage the ADT Command touchscreen or open your ADT security app and tap the shield option and submit your credentials to turn off the system when this occurs. You may receive notification from your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that you had a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Eugene

When you lose power due to high winds or other factors, you could begin hearing a beeping sound from your control panel. That indicates that the alarm is being powered by the battery backup. To reset your unit and halt the beeping, you must disarm/rearm the system.

Keep in mind, if you lose power for an extended time, you could need a total reset of your home’s security. Follow the instructions in your user’s handbook -- normally by submitting your code and hitting the on/off button two times -- and you should be back in business. You could continue to notice the auxiliary power beeping, as it may not cease until the battery charges entirely. Contact your home security agent if you keep having issues with your ADT system at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.

Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

To do this, you will set your home’s defense to Test Mode so you prevent setting off an accidental alarm. After the you replace the old battery, remove the system from test mode and resume normal operations. If the control panel is unable to register the device or the battery icon is still on, you may have to perform a full reset of your security system.
