How To Reset Your Asheville System

An important advantage of having your home security system set up by trained experts is that you rarely find a reason to make major adjustments to it. With that being said, there may be a couple situations where you must reset your alarms in Asheville. When using a smart command panel, your system reset normally requires just a few minor taps of the touchscreen after common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Consult Your Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Asheville home security system, consult your instruction manual ahead of time. You don't want to undermine your system as a result of touching something incorrectly. In addition, your system might be different if you upgraded from a numerical keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface. Keep in mind that if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always call the experts.

Resetting Your Asheville Security System After A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm takes place as a result of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You can engage the ADT Command touchscreen or open the ADT mobile app and hit the shield option and type in your credentials to deactivate the alarms in these situations. You could get a call from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just tell them you had a false alarm.

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

If power is lost due to high winds or other factors, you might start to hear a beeping sound from your central command hub. That indicates that your security is using the battery backup. To reset your unit and silence the beeping, you should disarm/rearm the system.

But please note, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you could need a full system reset. Pay careful attention to the directives in the manual -- usually by entering your PIN number and tapping the off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You could continue to notice chirps from the backup power, as it may not end until the battery charges entirely. Contact your home security specialists if you are still having problems with your ADT equipment 20 hours after power is restored.

Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

On occasion you must replace a battery in one of your home security components. To do this, you should switch your system to test mode so you avoid triggering a false alarm. When the new battery is put in place, change the alarm panel from Test Mode and resume normal operations. If the system doesn't notice the piece of equipment or the battery icon is still on, you may need a total reset of the system.

Resetting Your Asheville Security System After Adding Or Deleting A User

The addition and deletion of personal codes can be done on your ADT Command interface and your ADT mobile app. You shouldn't need a reset of your alarm when deleting or adding codes. But you should note, if you find yourself moving to a new house that already has an ADT system, you'll want to contact your security specialists at (828) 202-7229 to start a new contract. The installer will go on site to replace components, set up other devices (as required), and do a factory reset.
