How To Reset Your Security System In Miami

An important advantage of having your home security system installed by trained experts is that you rarely have to make major adjustments to it. With that being said, there will likely be times where you have to reset your alarms in Miami. If you use the ADT Command panel, your system reset usually needs only one or two button tap after a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

A word to the wise before you try to reset your Miami home security system, read your owner’s manual ahead of time. You don't want to compromise your system because you hit a button in error. Additionally, control panels might change if you switched from a number pad to a digital command hub. Keep in mind that if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't hesitate to reach out to the professionals.

Resetting Your Miami Home Security System Due To A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm happens because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can engage the central hub or open your ADT security app and tap the shield icon and type in your security code to deactivate the system for these instances. You could be contacted by your monitoring professionals, but just let them know you experienced a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Miami

If the power goes out because of a storm or other event, you may begin hearing a steady beep from your central command hub. That indicates that the alarm is being powered by the backup battery. To reset your unit and silence the beeping, you need to deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if your power outage lasts for prolonged time frame, you could need a full system reset. Heed the instructions in your user’s handbook -- usually by submitting your code and hitting the off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You might continue to notice chirps from the backup power, as it may not cease until your battery reaches a full charge. Call your home security agent if you keep having problems with your ADT equipment at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.

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

On occasion you must replace a battery in one of the devices in your security installation. In order to accomplish this, you should switch your alarm system to Test Mode so you avoid triggering a false alarm. After the battery is replaced, move the system out of Test Mode and restore normal operations. If the system doesn't register the device or the battery indicator is still on, you may need a whole system reset.

Reset Your Miami Security System After Adding Or Deleting Someone

Adding and deleting users can be accomplished on your ADT Command interface and your ADT mobile app. You should never need a resetting of your system when deleting or adding a user or code. With that being said, if you relocate to a new property with an existing ADT security system, you'll want to reach out to your home security professional at (305) 563-8665 to set up a new service. The installation tech will go on site to upgrade equipment, install other components (as required), and reset the system for you.
