How To Reset Your Corpus Christi Home System

A nice benefit of having your security system installed professionally is that you hardly ever need to make major adjustments to it. Even so, there may be times when you have to reset your alarms in Corpus Christi. If you use a smart command interface, your system reset typically takes a few minor taps of the touchscreen when you’ve experienced a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Check Your Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Corpus Christi home security system, read your instruction manual first. You wouldn’t want to undermine your home’s protection due to pressing the wrong button. In addition, control panels could change if you moved from a number pad to a digital command hub. And if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't worry as you can always reach out to your trusted security specialists.

Typically, a false alarm occurs because of a sensor that was tripped by accident.

You might get a call from your monitoring professionals, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

Keep in mind, if your power outage lasts for an extended time, you may need a complete system reset. Follow the instructions in the instruction manual -- normally by submitting your unique passcode and hitting the designated button two times -- and you should be running fine. You could continue to notice chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not end until your battery reaches a full charge. Reach out to your home security agent if you continue to have issues with your ADT controls 20 hours after the power is resumed.
