How To Reset Your Sugarland Home System

One perk of getting your home security system hooked up professionally is that you rarely have to worry about it. Even so, there may be a few instances where you must reset your alarms in Sugarland. When using the ADT Command hub, your system reset normally takes a couple button tap after occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Read The Instruction Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

A word to the wise before you try to reset your Sugarland home security system, consult your instruction manual prior to proceeding. You don't want to damage your property’s defense due to pressing something incorrectly. Also, the process could have changed if you switched from a number pad to a fully digital system. And if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't hesitate to call your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Sugarland Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm happens because of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You are able to utilize the control panel or bring up your ADT security app and hit the shield image and submit your unique passcode to turn off the alarms in these situations. You might get a call from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Sugarland

When you lose power from lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you could start to hear a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that your security is being powered by the battery backup. To reset your equipment and halt the steady beeps, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

Keep in mind, if your power outage lasts for a longer period of time, you might need a complete reset of your system. Heed the instructions in your user’s handbook -- normally by submitting your unique passcode and hitting the designated button twice -- and you should be back in business. You might continue to notice chirps from the backup power, as it’s possible it won’t cease until your battery is fully charged. Contact your home security agent if you continue to have issues with your ADT equipment a day after your power is back on.

Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

When this needs to be done, you should change your system to test mode so you prevent setting off an accidental alarm. After the you replace the old battery, move the alarm panel from Test Mode and resume your usual settings. If the command center fails to register the piece of equipment or the battery light is still on, you might have to perform a total reset of the system.
