How To Reset Your Brooklyn System

An important advantage of getting your security system hooked up professionally is that you rarely find a reason to worry about it. Even so, there will likely be times when you must reset your alarms in Brooklyn. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command interface, a reset typically takes a few minor taps of the touchscreen after occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Consult Your Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you begin to reset your Brooklyn home security system, check your instruction manual first. You’ll never want to damage your system due to pressing something incorrectly. Also, your system could change if you moved from a number pad to a fully digital system. If there’s ever a time when you can't reset your system, don't worry as you can always call the experts.

Resetting Your Brooklyn Security System Due To A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm happens because of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You may engage the central hub or access your ADT smartphone app and tap the shield icon and submit your security code to switch off the system in these situations. You could get a call from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just let them know you experienced a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Brooklyn

When you lose power because of high winds or other factors, you could start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your alarm’s central interface. This signifies that your home’s defense is being powered by the backup battery. To reset your unit and stop the constant chirping, you must take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

Keep in mind, if your power outage lasts for an extended time, you may need a total reset of your system. Follow the directives in your user’s handbook -- normally by submitting your unique passcode and pressing the off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You might keep hearing the auxiliary power beeping, as it might not cease until your battery is fully charged. Reach out to your home security agent if you continue to have problems with your ADT system a day after the power is resumed.

When You Need To Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

Once the you replace the old battery, move the system from Test Mode and restore your usual settings. If the system doesn't notice the component or the battery indicator remains on, you might need a whole system reset.
