How To Reset Your Dallas System

An important advantage of having your home security installed by trained experts is that you rarely have to concern yourself with it. However, there may be a couple situations when you need to reset your alarms in Dallas. If you’re utilizing a smart command hub, resetting normally takes a couple button tap when you’ve experienced occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Check Your Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Dallas home security system, check your instruction manual ahead of time. You’ll never want to damage your home’s protection because you hit something incorrectly. In addition, control panels may change if you upgraded from a numbered keypad to a digital command hub. And if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't be reluctant to contact the experts.

Resetting Your Dallas Security System Due To A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm takes place because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You may engage the control panel or access the ADT mobile app and hit the shield option and enter your credentials to turn off the system for these instances. You could get a call from your monitoring professionals, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Dallas

If power is lost due to high winds or other factors, you may begin hearing a repeated, high-pitched beep from your control panel. This lets you know that your security is using the battery backup. To reset your unit and silence the constant chirping, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if your power outage lasts for an extended time, you may need a full system reset. Heed the instructions in your user’s handbook -- normally by entering your unique passcode and tapping the off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You may keep hearing chirps from the backup power, as it may not stop until your battery is fully charged. Reach out to your security technician if you continue to have difficulties with your ADT controls a day after your power is back on.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

Occasionally you must switch out a battery in one of your security devices. When this needs to be done, you will switch your alarm system to Test Mode so you prevent setting off a false alarm. Once the new battery is put in place, move the system out of test mode and revert back to your usual settings. If the command center doesn't notice the piece of equipment or the battery light stays on, you could have to perform a total reset of the system.

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

Adding and deleting people can be completed on the ADT Command panel and your ADT mobile app. You won’t need a system reset following the addition or deletion of codes. With that being said, if you relocate to a new home that already has an ADT system, you need to reach out to your residential security experts at (214) 997-6030 to set up a new service. The technician will go on site to switch out components, set up additional devices (as required), and perform a full reset.
