Can you stop false alarms in The Woodlands?
Like diagnosing any issue, the best course of action is to review the guidebook. Ensure all alarms and sensors are installed correctly on your end by:
- Executing a diagnostic with your touchscreen smart hub.
- Manually inspect each component to be certain it didn't get knocked out of place or need a battery change.
- Check your preset schedules to make sure that your home’s security isn’t engaging at inappropriate times.
- Make sure all recently added smart implements are incorporated properly and aren't conflicting with your home’s alarm.
Contact your customer service representative if you continue to have problems cutting down false alarms in your The Woodlands system. They'll gladly schedule a tech to check your system.
Investigate your windows and doors
If your system seems to be installed properly, the subsequent measure is to do an investigation of your property. Are all your windows and doors closed tightly, or do you find some inadvertently open? If an entry point remains unlatched, it might trip a motion sensor. In the event your family routinely forgets to shut a door, you can implement a smart lock that secures automatically when the alarm is engaged. Regrettably, windows require additional manual maintenance, mainly if you have someone who prefers to fall asleep with a cracked window. Thankfully, your Vivint alarm system makes it simple to turn off that alarm while protecting the rest of the property.
