How To Reset Your Mobile Home System

A nice benefit of having your security system installed professionally is that you rarely have to worry about it. However, there will likely be times where you need to reset your alarms in Mobile. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command hub, a reset usually needs only one or two button tap when you’ve experienced a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Mobile home security system, read your instruction manual first. You don't want to damage your property’s defense because you hit the wrong button. In addition, control panels may be different if you moved from a numerical keypad to a fully digital system. And if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't hesitate to contact the experts.

Resetting Your Mobile Security System After A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm takes place as a result of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You may engage the ADT Command touchscreen or access the ADT mobile app and tap the shield image and enter your credentials to switch off the system for these instances. You could be contacted by your security monitoring team, but just let them know it was a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Mobile

If power is lost from high winds or other factors, you might start to hear a beeping sound from your control panel. That indicates that your home’s defense is being powered by the battery backup. To reset your unit and silence the steady beeps, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

Keep in mind, if your power outage lasts for an extended time, you may need a full reset of your home’s security. Follow the directions in the instruction manual -- usually by putting in your code and hitting the on/off button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You could keep hearing chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it’s possible it won’t stop until the battery charges entirely. Reach out to your security technician if you are still having problems with your ADT system at least 20 hours after power is restored.

Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

On occasion you must change a battery within one of the devices in your security installation. When this needs to be done, you want to set your alarm system to Test Mode so you avoid triggering an alarm by accident. Once the battery is replaced, change the alarm panel from test mode and resume normal operations. If the system fails to register the piece of equipment or the battery icon stays on, you could require a whole system reset.

Tips to Reset Your Mobile Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of Someone

Removing or adding people can be accomplished on your ADT Command hub and your ADT smartphone app. You shouldn't require a reset of your alarm following the addition or deletion of users. However, if you relocate to a new house with an existing ADT system, you need to contact your residential security experts at (251) 207-7344 to start a new contract. The technician will come out and upgrade components, install additional devices (as required), and perform a full reset.
