How To Reset Your Newburgh Home System

A nice benefit of having your security system hooked up professionally is that you seldom find a reason to make major adjustments to it. However, there will likely be a couple situations where you have to reset your alarms in Newburgh. When using the ADT Command hub, your system reset usually needs only a couple button tap after a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Check Your Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

A word to the wise before you try to reset your Newburgh home security system, consult your instruction manual ahead of time. You don't want to compromise your system because you hit the wrong button. Also, your system might be different if you moved from a numbered keypad to a digital command hub. And if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't worry as you can always call the professionals.

Resetting Your Newburgh Home Security System After A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm happens because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You may utilize the ADT Command touchscreen or bring up the ADT mobile app and tap the shield option and type in your security code to deactivate the alarms for these instances. You may get a call from your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that you had a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Newburgh

If power is lost from lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you may start to hear a steady beep from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that your home’s defense is running off the battery backup. To reset your equipment and halt the constant chirping, you should take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

However, if power is out for a longer period of time, you may need a total system reset. Follow the directives in your user’s handbook -- usually by entering your code and pressing the designated button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You might continue to notice chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not cease until the battery charges entirely. Reach out to your home security specialists if you keep having issues with your ADT system a day after your power is back on.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

On occasion you will have to switch out a battery in one of your security devices. When this needs to be done, you should switch your home’s defense to Test Mode so you prevent setting off an alarm by accident. Once the battery is replaced, remove the alarm panel from Test Mode and resume your usual settings. If the system doesn't register the component or the battery indicator stays on, you might require a whole system reset.

Reset Your Newburgh Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of Someone

The addition and deletion of personal codes can be done on the ADT Command panel and the ADT Control mobile app. You won’t need a resetting of your system following the addition or deletion of codes. However, if you relocate to a new home that already has an ADT system, you'll want to call your home security professional at (845) 208-9357 to establish a new service. The installation tech will come out and replace outdated parts, place other devices (if needed), and reset the system for you.
