How To Reset Your Jamestown System

One perk of having your security system installed by professionals is that you hardly ever need to concern yourself with it. Even so, there will likely be a few instances where you have to reset your alarms in Jamestown. If you’re utilizing a smart command panel, your system reset normally takes one or two tap of a button when you’ve experienced a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Consult Your Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

A word to the wise before you begin to reset your Jamestown home security system, read your owner’s manual prior to proceeding. You’ll never want to compromise your system as a result of touching something incorrectly. Also, your system may have changed if you moved from a numbered keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface.

Usually, a false alarm occurs due to a sensor that was tripped by accident.

You could be contacted by your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Jamestown

When you lose power due to a storm or other event, you could start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that your security is using the battery backup. To reset your equipment and silence the steady beeps, you need to deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if your power outage lasts for a longer period of time, you may need a complete reset of your system. Heed the directions in the manual -- normally by submitting your PIN number and pressing the off button two times -- and you should be back in business. You might still hear the auxiliary power beeping, as it’s possible it won’t cease until your battery is fully charged. Contact your security technician if you keep having problems with your ADT system at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.
