How To Reset Your Home Security System In Orange County

A nice benefit of having your home security system installed by trained experts is that you seldom have to worry about it. However, there will likely be a few instances where you have to reset your alarms in Orange County. If you use a smart command interface, your system reset typically requires just a couple taps of the touchscreen following a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Instruction Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

One note of caution before you try to reset your Orange County home security system, check your instruction manual first. You wouldn’t want to damage your system because you hit the wrong button. Additionally, your system could have changed if you upgraded from a numerical keypad to a digital command hub. Keep in mind that if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't be reluctant to reach out to the experts.

Resetting Your Orange County Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm takes place as a result of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can use the central hub or open your ADT security app and touch the shield icon and type in your security code to switch off the alarms when this occurs. You may get a call from your security monitoring team, but just tell them you had a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Orange County

If power is lost due to a storm or other event, you might start to hear a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. This lets you know that your home’s defense is running off the backup battery. To reset the alarm and stop the beeping, you need to deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you might need a complete reset of your system. Pay careful attention to the directions in the instruction manual -- normally by entering your PIN number and pressing the on/off button two times -- and you should be back in business. You could still hear chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it’s possible it won’t end until the battery charges entirely. Call your home security agent if you keep having difficulties with your ADT system a day after your power is back on.

Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

Occasionally you must change a battery powering one of your security devices. In order to accomplish this, you will switch your system to test mode so you don't trigger an alarm by accident. When the battery is replaced, remove the system from Test Mode and resume normal operations. If the control panel doesn't register the piece of equipment or the battery indicator stays on, you may require a total reset of the system.

Resetting Your Orange County Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of A User

The addition and deletion of people can be accomplished on your ADT Command interface and your ADT mobile app. You shouldn't need a resetting of your system following the addition or deletion of a user or code. But you should note, if you relocate to a new property with an existing ADT alarm system, you should contact your security specialists at (714) 475-2212 to establish a new plan. The installer will go on site to upgrade components, install other alarms or cameras (as required), and do a factory reset.
