Can you side step false alarms in Utica?
Like diagnosing any issue, the first thing to do is review the owner’s instruction booklet. Ensure all devices are connected appropriately from your perspective by:
- Executing a diagnostic via your touchscreen smart hub.
- Manually evaluate each device to be certain it didn't become dislodged or need a battery change.
- Check your preset schedules to be certain that your alarms aren’t engaging at unsuitable times.
- Be certain that all recently added smart devices are installed in the proper fashion and aren't interfering with your home’s alarm.
Contact your service representative if you continue to have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Utica system. They'll be happy to dispatch a tech to inspect your system.
Inspect your windows and doors
In the event your installation checks out installed properly, the next step is to do a sweep of your property. Are your windows and doors shut tight, or do you find some mistakenly ajar? If an entrance is left open, it might trip a sensor. If it just so happens that your family routinely fails to close an entry point, you might want to implement a smart locking system that locks automatically when your system is engaged. Sadly, windows require more manual maintenance, mainly if you have someone who prefers to fall asleep with a window cracked. Fortunately, your Vivint installation makes it easy to deactivate that sensor while still shielding the remainder of the property.
