How To Reset Your Manchester Home System

One perk of having your home security system set up professionally is that you seldom find a reason to worry about it. With that being said, there may be times where you must reset your alarms in Manchester. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command panel, resetting typically requires just a couple button tap after a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Consult Your Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

One note of caution before you start resetting your Manchester home security system, read your owner’s manual first. You’ll never want to compromise your property’s defense because you hit something incorrectly. Also, control panels may change if you upgraded from a numerical keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface. And if you can't reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact the professionals.

Resetting Your Manchester Security System After A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm takes place as a result of an accidentally tripped sensor. You are able to use the control panel or open your ADT smartphone app and hit the shield icon and type in your unique passcode to switch off the system when this occurs. You could get a call from your monitoring professionals, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Manchester

If power is lost due to lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you may start to hear a beeping sound from your control panel. This lets you know that the alarm is running off the battery backup. To reset your equipment and stop the steady beeps, you should disarm/rearm the system.

However, if power is out for a longer period of time, you might need a full reset of your system. Follow the instructions in the manual -- typically by putting in your unique passcode and pressing the designated button two times -- and you should be running fine. You may still hear the auxiliary power beeping, as it’s possible it won’t cease until the battery charges entirely. Contact your home security specialists if you continue to have problems with your ADT controls a day after your power is back on.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

Occasionally you will have to change a battery in one of your security devices. In order to accomplish this, you want to switch your system to test mode so you don't trigger a false alarm. When the battery is replaced, change the alarm from Test Mode and revert back to your usual settings. If the control panel is unable to register the device or the battery indicator remains on, you could have to perform a total reset of the system.

Tips to Reset Your Manchester Security System When Adding Or Removing Someone

The addition and deletion of people can be accomplished on your ADT Command hub and your ADT mobile app. You should never have to perform a reset of your alarm after adding or removing a user or code. With that being said, if you find yourself moving to a new house with an existing ADT system, you'll want to reach out to your home security professional at (603) 932-7598 to set up a new service. The installation tech will visit your property to upgrade outdated parts, install other devices (as required), and do a factory reset.
