How To Reset Your Raleigh System

One perk of having your home security hooked up by professionals is that you hardly ever have to worry about it. Even so, there could be a few instances when you need to reset your alarms in Raleigh. When using a smart command hub, resetting normally requires just a couple tap of a button following common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Read The Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

One note of caution before you start resetting your Raleigh home security system, consult your manual ahead of time. You’ll never want to undermine your home’s protection as a result of touching the wrong button. In addition, your system might change if you switched from a number pad to a fully digital system.

Resetting Your Raleigh Security System After A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm takes place as a result of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You are able to engage the control panel or access your ADT security app and touch the shield option and type in your credentials to deactivate the alarms for these instances. You could receive notification from your security monitoring team, but just tell them you experienced a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Raleigh

If power is lost from lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you could start hearing a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. This lets you know that your home’s defense is running off the battery backup. To reset the alarm and silence the steady beeps, you need to disarm/rearm the system.

But please note, if you lose power for prolonged time frame, you may need a total reset of your system. Heed the directives in your user’s handbook -- usually by submitting your code and tapping the on/off button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You could continue to notice chirps from the backup power, as it might not stop until your battery reaches a full charge. Reach out to your home security specialists if you continue to have issues with your ADT equipment at least 20 hours after your power is back on.

When the you replace the old battery, remove the alarm out of test mode and revert back to normal operations. If the command center doesn't register the piece of equipment or the battery light remains on, you might need a whole system reset.
