Numerous false alarms in Erie can be avoided
When figuring out any issue, the initial step is to read the owner’s instruction booklet. Be certain that all devices are connected correctly on your end by:
- Performing a checkup through your smart hub touchscreen.
- Visually evaluate each device to ensure it didn't become dislodged or need a battery change.
- Inspect your schedules and presets to make sure that your alarms aren’t engaging at inopportune times.
- Make sure all new smart devices are installed in the proper fashion and aren't disrupting your system.
Contact your Vivint agent if you are still having problems cutting down false alarms in your Erie security system. They'll be happy to schedule a tech to check your setup.
Investigate your windows and doors
When your system seems to be installed properly, the ensuing step is to thoroughly inspect the house. Are your windows and doors tightly secured, or might there be a few inadvertently cracked? If an entrance is left open, it may trip an activated sensor. If your household routinely fails to secure a door, you can install a smart locking system that automatically locks when your system is activated. Sadly, windows take additional hands-on attention, especially if you have a family member who prefers to fall asleep with an open window. Thankfully, your Vivint home security system makes it easy to deactivate that sensor while protecting the rest of the house.
