Can you avoid false alarms in Columbus?
Just like you would address any concern, the initial step is to read the manual. Ensure all alarms and sensors are installed properly on your end by:
- Performing a diagnostic via your touchscreen smart hub.
- Visually check each device to be certain it didn't become dislodged or need a new battery.
- Inspect your preset schedules to ensure that your home’s security isn’t engaging at inappropriate times.
- Ensure all recently added smart devices are incorporated in the proper fashion and aren't disrupting your alarms.
Contact your customer service agent if you are still having issues cutting down false alarms in your Columbus system. They'll be happy to dispatch a trained expert to inspect your setup.
Inspect your entry points
If your configuration checks out alright, the ensuing measure is to thoroughly inspect your property. Are your doors and widows tightly secured, or are any mistakenly cracked? If an entry point stays unsecured, it might activate a motion sensor. In the event your family routinely neglects to secure an entry point, you can incorporate a smart locking system that automatically locks when your system is engaged. Unfortunately, windows require additional physical effort, especially if you have a loved one who likes to fall asleep with a window cracked. Thankfully, your Vivint alarm system makes it a breeze to deactivate that alarm while protecting the remainder of the property.
