Can you avoid false alarms in Springfield?
When figuring out any issue, the initial step is to reference the owner’s instruction booklet. Be certain that all alarms and sensors are connected correctly on your end by:
- Performing a diagnostic through your smart hub.
- Visually evaluate each sensor to make sure it didn't become dislodged or need a new battery.
- Look over your preset schedules to ensure that your system isn’t arming at unsuitable times.
- Make sure all new smart components are configured in the proper fashion and aren't conflicting with your system.
Reach out to your Vivint specialist if you continue to have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Springfield system. They'll gladly schedule a tehnician to inspect your setup.
Inspect your doors and windows
When your installation appears to be alright, the subsequent course of action is to do an investigation of your property. Are your doors and widows closed tightly, or are any inadvertently open? If an entry point is left unsecured, it could trigger an activated sensor. If it just so happens that your family constantly forgets to secure an entrance, you might want to incorporate a smart lock that automatically locks when your home security goes live. Sadly, windows need more manual maintenance, mainly if you have someone who enjoys to sleep with a window cracked. Thankfully, your Vivint installation makes it easy to deactivate that sensor while protecting the rest of the residence.
