How To Reset Your Security System In Cleveland

One perk of having your home security installed by trained experts is that you hardly ever find a reason to concern yourself with it. However, there could be a couple situations where you must reset your alarms in Cleveland. If you use the ADT Command panel, a reset normally requires just one or two taps of the touchscreen after a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Check Your Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

A word to the wise before you begin to reset your Cleveland home security system, check your owner’s manual ahead of time. You don't want to undermine your property’s defense because you hit something incorrectly. Also, your system might have changed if you moved from a numbered keypad to a digital command hub. Keep in mind that if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always reach out to the experts.

Resetting Your Cleveland Security System Due To A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm takes place due to the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can engage the control panel or open your ADT smartphone app and touch the shield image and submit your credentials to switch off the alarms for these instances. You may receive notification from your monitoring professionals, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

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

When you lose power due to a storm or other event, you may start to hear a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that the alarm is using the backup battery. To reset your unit and halt the constant chirping, you should deactivate and reactivate your system.

But please note, if you lose power for an extended time, you might need a complete reset of your home’s security. Follow the instructions in your user’s handbook -- usually by putting in your code and hitting the designated button twice -- and you should be running fine. You might still hear chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it’s possible it won’t end until your battery is fully charged. Contact your home security agent if you continue to have difficulties with your ADT controls 20 hours after the power is resumed.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

On occasion you must replace a battery within one of your home security components. When this needs to be done, you will change your alarm system to test mode so you don't trigger a false alarm. Once the battery is replaced, move the alarm out of "Test Mode" and revert back to your usual settings. If the command center doesn't recognize the component or the battery indicator stays on, you may have to perform a total reset of the system.

Resetting Your Cleveland Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of Someone

Adding and deleting personal codes can be accomplished on your ADT Command hub and your ADT mobile app. You shouldn't have to perform a reset of your alarm after adding or removing codes. However, if you move into a new property with an existing ADT security system, you'll want to reach out to your residential security experts at (216) 273-8448 to establish a new service. The installer will come out and switch out components, install additional components (as required), and perform a full reset.
