How To Reset Your Binghamton System

One perk of getting your home security hooked up professionally is that you rarely find a reason to make major adjustments to it. However, there will likely be a couple situations where you need to reset your alarms in Binghamton. If you use the ADT Command panel, a reset normally takes a couple taps of the touchscreen after occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Consult Your Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

A word to the wise before you begin to reset your Binghamton home security system, read your instruction manual first. You’ll never want to undermine your system as a result of touching the wrong button. Additionally, control panels might have changed if you upgraded from a numbered keypad to a fully digital system. If there’s ever a time when you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't be reluctant to contact your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Binghamton Home Security System Due To A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm takes place as a result of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You may utilize the ADT Command touchscreen or open your ADT smartphone app and hit the shield icon and enter your credentials to deactivate the alarms in these situations. You might be contacted by your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

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

When you lose power because of high winds or other factors, you might begin hearing a steady beep from your central command hub. That indicates that the alarm is being powered by the backup battery. To reset the alarm and stop the steady beeps, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if power is out for an extended time, you might need a complete system reset. Heed the directives in the manual -- typically by entering your PIN number and hitting the off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You might continue to notice the auxiliary power beeping, as it might not end until your battery is fully charged. Reach out to your home security specialists if you continue to have issues with your ADT controls at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.

If the system doesn't register the piece of equipment or the battery light stays on, you could have to perform a whole system reset.
