How To Reset Your Bakersfield System

A nice benefit of having your security system installed by professionals is that you rarely have to make major adjustments to it. With that being said, there may be times when you must reset your alarms in Bakersfield.

You may be contacted by your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but simply inform them that you experienced a false alarm.

However, if you lose power for prolonged time frame, you might need a total reset of your home’s security. Follow the directives in your user’s handbook -- typically by entering your unique passcode and pressing the on/off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You might still hear chirps from the backup power, as it’s possible it won’t end until your battery reaches a full charge. Call your home security agent if you are still having difficulties with your ADT controls a day after power is restored.
