How To Reset Your Jackson System

An important advantage of getting your home security set up by trained experts is that you rarely have to make major adjustments to it. Even so, there may be a few instances when you have to reset your alarms in Jackson. If you use the ADT Command panel, a reset normally takes one or two taps of the touchscreen following common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Read The Instruction Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Keep in mind that if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact the experts.

Generally, a false alarm occurs because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can use the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and tap the shield option and type in your unique passcode to switch off the system when this occurs. You might be contacted by your security monitoring team, but just let them know it was a false alarm.

But please note, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you could need a complete reset of your home’s security. Heed the instructions in the instruction manual -- usually by putting in your unique passcode and pressing the off button twice -- and you should be back in business. You may continue to notice chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not stop until your battery is fully charged.
