How To Reset Your Monroe Home System

One perk of having your home security hooked up professionally is that you rarely find a reason to concern yourself with it. With that being said, there may be a couple situations when you need to reset your alarms in Monroe. If you’re utilizing a smart command panel, your system reset normally needs only a few minor taps of the touchscreen following 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 Monroe home security system, consult your owner’s manual ahead of time. You’ll never want to undermine your home’s protection as a result of touching the wrong button. Additionally, the process might be different if you switched from a number pad to a modernized touchscreen interface. If there’s ever a time when you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't hesitate to call the experts.

Resetting Your Monroe Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm happens as a result of an accidentally tripped sensor. You can use the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and hit the shield image and enter your security code to deactivate the alarms in these situations. You may get a call from your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that you had a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Monroe

When you lose power due to a storm or other event, you might start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your central command hub. This signifies that the alarm is running off the battery backup. To reset your equipment and stop the constant chirping, you need to take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

But please note, if your power outage lasts for an extended time, you could need a complete system reset. Pay careful attention to the instructions in the instruction manual -- usually by entering your unique passcode and pressing the off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You may continue to notice chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not end until your battery is fully charged. Contact your home security agent if you continue to have issues with your ADT system a day after power is restored.

Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

Occasionally you need to replace a battery powering one of the devices in your security installation. To do this, you will switch your alarm system to Test Mode so you don't trigger a false alarm. When the you replace the old battery, remove the alarm panel out of "Test Mode" and revert back to normal operations. If the control panel doesn't register the device or the battery icon is still on, you could have to perform a whole system reset.

Reset Your Monroe Security System When Adding Or Removing A Code

Adding and deleting people can be done on your ADT Command hub and your ADT smartphone app. You shouldn't have to perform a resetting of your system following the addition or deletion of codes.
