Numerous false alarms in Athens are avoidable
Just like you would address any issue, the first thing to do is review the manual. Ensure all devices are set up appropriately from your end by:
- Running a system analysis with your smart hub touchscreen.
- Manually check each device to ensure it didn't slip or need a new battery.
- Inspect your schedules and presets to make sure that your system isn’t arming at inopportune times.
- Make sure all new smart devices are installed in the proper fashion and aren't interfering with your system.
Reach out to your customer service agent if you still have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Athens system. They'll gladly dispatch a trained expert to check your system.
Inspect your windows and doors
When your system seems to be OK, the subsequent step is to do a sweep of your residence. Are all your windows and doors tightly secured, or do you find some mistakenly ajar? If an entrance remains unlatched, it could trip a motion sensor. If your family constantly forgets to secure an entrance, you can implement a smart lock that secures automatically when your home security is engaged. Sadly, windows require extra hands-on attention, mainly if you have a family member who enjoys to sleep with a cracked window. Fortunately, your Vivint alarm system makes it easy to deactivate that device while still guarding the remainder of the residence.
