How To Reset Your Springfield System

One perk of getting your security system set up professionally is that you seldom have to concern yourself with it. Even so, there could be a few instances when you need to reset your alarms in Springfield. If you use the ADT Command hub, resetting typically needs only one or two taps of the touchscreen following occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Check Your Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you try to reset your Springfield home security system, read your manual first. You wouldn’t want to compromise your home’s protection because you hit something incorrectly. Additionally, the process may be different if you upgraded from a numbered keypad to a fully digital system. If there’s ever a time when you can't reset your system, don't be reluctant to reach out to the professionals.

Resetting Your Springfield Home Security System After A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm occurs due to the accidental tripping of a sensor. You are able to engage the ADT Command touchscreen or bring up your ADT security app and hit the shield image and submit your security code to switch off the system for these instances. You may receive notification from your monitoring professionals, but just tell them you had a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Springfield

When you lose power because of high winds or other factors, you might start hearing a steady beep from your central command hub. This signifies that the alarm is using the battery backup. To reset your unit and stop the steady beeps, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if your power outage lasts for an extended time, you could need a complete reset of your system. Pay careful attention to the directives in your user’s handbook -- usually by submitting your unique passcode and pressing the designated button two times -- and you should be running fine. You may continue to notice chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it’s possible it won’t cease until the battery charges entirely. Call your home security specialists if you continue to have problems with your ADT controls 20 hours after power is restored.

Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

On occasion you must replace a battery powering one of your security devices. In order to accomplish this, you should change your home’s defense to test mode so you avoid triggering a false alarm. After the new battery is put in place, move the alarm out of "Test Mode" and resume your usual settings. If the control panel is unable to notice the device or the battery icon stays on, you may need a full reset of your security system.

Reset Your Springfield Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of A User

The addition and deletion of users can be accomplished on your ADT Command hub and your ADT smartphone app. You shouldn't need a resetting of your system after adding or removing codes. With that being said, if you move into a new home with an existing ADT security system, you need to call your security specialists at (417) 233-4368 to establish a new contract. The technician will go on site to switch out components, install additional alarms or cameras (if needed), and reset the system for you.
