How To Reset Your San Jose System

One perk of getting your home security installed by trained experts is that you seldom find a reason to worry about it. Even so, there will likely be times where you need to reset your alarms in San Jose. When using the ADT Command panel, your system reset normally takes a couple tap of a button after common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Check Your Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you try to reset your San Jose home security system, consult your owner’s manual prior to proceeding. You wouldn’t want to undermine your property’s defense due to pressing a button in error. Additionally, the process could be different if you moved from a numbered keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface. If there’s ever a time when you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always call your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your San Jose Home Security System Due To A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm happens because of an accidentally tripped sensor. You are able to use the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and touch the shield option and type in your security code to turn off the system when this occurs. You could get a call from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just tell them you experienced a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In San Jose

If power is lost from lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you could begin hearing a beeping sound from your central command hub. This lets you know that the alarm is running off the secondary power source. To reset your unit and stop the constant chirping, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

But please note, if you lose power for an extended time, you could need a complete system reset. Pay careful attention to the instructions in your user’s handbook -- usually by submitting your PIN number and hitting the designated button twice -- and you should be back in business. You could keep hearing chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it’s possible it won’t stop until your battery is fully charged. Call your home security specialists if you keep having difficulties with your ADT controls 20 hours after your power is back on.

Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

On occasion you will have to replace a battery in one of your home security components. To do this, you should change your alarm system to test mode so you prevent setting off an accidental alarm. Once the new battery is put in place, change the alarm panel out of test mode and resume your usual settings. If the control panel is unable to register the component or the battery icon stays on, you could require a full reset of your security system.

Resetting Your San Jose Security System When Adding Or Removing Someone

The addition and deletion of personal codes can be completed on your ADT Command interface and your ADT mobile app. You won’t need a system reset when deleting or adding codes. But you should note, if you move into a new property with an existing ADT alarm system, you should reach out to your security specialists at (408) 641-3351 to establish a new plan.
