Can you side step false alarms in Gaithersburg?
Just like you would address any concern, the initial step is to reference the manual. Make sure all devices are set up correctly on your end by:
- Performing a checkup via your smart hub.
- Physically inspect each component to be certain it didn't become dislodged or need a new battery.
- Check your scheduling to be certain that your system isn’t arming at unsuitable times.
- Be certain that all recently added smart implements are configured properly and aren't conflicting with your home’s alarm.
Reach out to your Vivint agent if you are still having problems cutting down false alarms in your Gaithersburg security system. They'll be happy to schedule a tech to examine your equipment.
Investigate your windows and doors
When your system seems to be alright, the next step is to do a sweep of your residence. Are your entries shut tight, or are any accidentally cracked? If an entry point remains unlatched, it might trigger a sensor. If it just so happens that your clan routinely neglects to close a door, you might want to implement a smart lock that secures automatically when your system is activated. Sadly, windows need extra manual maintenance, especially if you have a loved one who likes to sleep with a cracked window. Luckily, your Vivint installation makes it easy to disengage that device while still shielding the rest of the residence.
