How To Reset Your Lincoln System

A nice benefit of having your security system installed by professionals is that you seldom have to worry about it. Even so, there may be times when you need to reset your alarms in Lincoln. If you use a smart command interface, a reset usually needs only a couple button tap following occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Consult Your Owner’s Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Lincoln home security system, read your instruction manual first. You don't want to undermine your system as a result of touching the wrong button. Also, the process might have changed if you upgraded from a number pad to a fully digital system. And if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't hesitate to reach out to your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Lincoln Security System After A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm takes place because of an accidentally tripped sensor. You are able to use the control panel or bring up the ADT mobile app and tap the shield image and submit your unique passcode to switch off the system when this occurs. You may receive notification from your security monitoring team, but just tell them you had a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Lincoln

When you lose power from lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you might begin hearing a beeping sound from your central command hub. This signifies that your home’s defense is being powered by the secondary power source. To reset your unit and silence the steady beeps, you must disarm/rearm the system.

But please note, if you lose power for prolonged time frame, you could need a total reset of your home’s security. Follow the instructions in your user’s handbook -- usually by putting in your unique passcode 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 cease until your battery is fully charged. Reach out to your home security specialists if you continue to have issues with your ADT equipment a day after the power is resumed.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

Occasionally you need to change a battery powering one of the devices in your security installation. When this needs to be done, you will set your alarm system to Test Mode so you don't trigger an accidental alarm. When the new battery is put in place, move the alarm panel from test mode and resume normal operations. If the command center is unable to recognize the component or the battery light remains on, you might require a total reset of the system.

Reset Your Lincoln Security System When Adding Or Removing Someone

Removing or adding personal codes can be completed on your ADT Command hub and your ADT smartphone app. You won’t require a system reset after adding or removing codes. But you should note, if you move into a new house with an existing ADT security system, you need to call your residential security experts at (402) 277-9887 to set up a new plan. The technician will go on site to replace components, place other components (as required), and do a factory reset.
