Can you avoid false alarms in Houston?
When figuring out any concern, the initial step is to read the guidebook. Ensure all devices are connected correctly from your perspective by:
- Running a checkup via your smart hub.
- Physically check each sensor to be certain it didn't become dislodged or need a new battery.
- Inspect your scheduling to ensure that your home’s security isn’t activating at inappropriate times.
- Be certain that all recently added smart components are installed in the proper fashion and aren't conflicting with your home’s alarm.
Call your customer service representative if you continue to have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Houston home. They'll be happy to dispatch a tech to examine your equipment.
Inspect your doors and windows
If your system seems to be alright, the subsequent course of action is to thoroughly inspect your property. Are all your doors and widows shut tight, or do you find some accidentally ajar? If an entry point stays open, it could activate a sensor. In the event your family routinely neglects to close a door, you could install a smart lock that locks automatically when the alarm is engaged. Sadly, windows take additional hands-on attention, mainly if you have a family member who likes to sleep with a cracked window. Thankfully, your Vivint installation makes it simple to disengage that sensor while still shielding the rest of the property.
