Can you avoid false alarms in Hammond?
When figuring out any concern, the best course of action is to read the owner’s instruction booklet. Make sure all alarms and sensors are set up correctly on your end by:
- Running a diagnostic via your touchscreen smart hub.
- Manually check each sensor to make sure it didn't become dislodged or need fresh batteries.
- Check your schedules and presets to ensure that your home’s security isn’t engaging at inopportune times.
- Make sure all recently added smart components are incorporated correctly and aren't conflicting with your system.
Call your Vivint agent if you are still having trouble cutting down false alarms in your Hammond home. They'll gladly send out a trained expert to check your equipment.
Investigate your windows and doors
If your system seems to be installed properly, the subsequent course of action is to do a sweep of your residence. Are all your windows and doors tightly secured, or might there be a few accidentally cracked? If an access point remains open, it may trigger a motion sensor. If your household routinely forgets to secure an entry point, you might want to implement a smart locking mechanism that locks automatically when your system goes live. Unfortunately, windows take extra hands-on attention, mainly if you have a family member who enjoys to rest with an open window. Luckily, your Vivint installation makes it a breeze to disengage that device while protecting the rest of the property.
