Can you avoid false alarms in Cleveland?
Like diagnosing any issue, the first thing to do is read the guidebook. Be certain that all devices are connected properly from your end by:
- Performing a checkup via your touchscreen smart hub.
- Visually evaluate each component to ensure it didn't slip or need fresh batteries.
- Look over your preset schedules to be certain that your home’s security isn’t arming at inopportune times.
- Be certain that all recently added smart devices are configured properly and aren't disrupting your alarms.
Reach out to your customer service specialist if you are still having trouble cutting down false alarms in your Cleveland system. They'll be happy to dispatch a trained expert to inspect your equipment.
Investigate your doors and windows
When your system seems to be alright, the next step is to do an investigation of the house. Are your doors and widows closed tightly, or do you find some mistakenly open? If an access point remains open, it may trip an activated sensor. If your family consistently neglects to secure an entrance, you can install a smart locking system that locks automatically when your system is engaged. Sadly, windows need more hands-on attention, mainly if you have someone who prefers to fall asleep with a window cracked. Thankfully, your Vivint installation makes it easy to disengage that alarm while still guarding the remainder of the house.
