How To Reset Your Wausau Home System

One perk of getting your home security installed professionally is that you seldom find a reason to make major adjustments to it. With that being said, there may be a few instances where you have to reset your alarms in Wausau. When using the ADT Command hub, a reset normally needs only a few minor taps of the touchscreen after a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Consult Your Owner’s Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you begin to reset your Wausau home security system, check your manual prior to proceeding. You wouldn’t want to damage your home’s protection due to pressing something incorrectly. In addition, your system might be different if you upgraded from a number pad to a digital command hub. Keep in mind that if you can't reset your system, don't hesitate to contact the professionals.

Resetting Your Wausau Security System After A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm takes place because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You may engage the control panel or bring up your ADT security app and hit the shield option and enter your security code to switch off the alarms in these situations. You might be contacted by your security monitoring team, but just tell them you experienced a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Wausau

If the power goes out due to high winds or other factors, you may start to hear a beeping sound from your central command hub. This signifies that the alarm is running off the battery backup. To reset the alarm and stop the steady beeps, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if you lose power for prolonged time frame, you may need a total reset of your system. Pay careful attention to the instructions in the instruction manual -- usually by entering your PIN number and tapping the designated button twice -- and you should be back in business. You could still hear chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not cease until your battery reaches a full charge. Call your security technician if you continue to have problems with your ADT system at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.

When You Need To Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

There will be infrequent times when you must change a battery within one of your home security components. When this needs to be done, you should set your alarm system to test mode so you don't trigger a false alarm. When the battery is replaced, move the alarm panel from "Test Mode" and restore your usual settings. If the control panel doesn't notice the piece of equipment or the battery indicator is still on, you could require a total reset of the system.

Tips to Reset Your Wausau Security System After Adding Or Deleting A Code

Adding and deleting users can be completed on the ADT Command panel and your ADT mobile app. You shouldn't require 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 need to reach out to your security specialists at (715) 256-7915 to start a new service. The technician will come out and upgrade equipment, set up additional devices (if necessary), and reset the system for you.
