Many false alarms in San Jose can be avoided
When figuring out any concern, the best course of action is to review the guidebook. Be certain that all alarms and sensors are connected appropriately on your end by:
- Performing a checkup through your smart hub.
- Manually evaluate each component to make sure it didn't slip or need a battery change.
- Check your preset schedules to be certain that your system isn’t arming at inappropriate times.
- Ensure all new smart implements are incorporated in the proper fashion and aren't disrupting your home’s alarm.
Call your service specialist if you still have problems cutting down false alarms in your San Jose system. They'll be happy to send out a trained expert to check your system.
Check your entry points
If your installation seems to be installed properly, the next course of action is to do a sweep of your property. Are all your doors and widows shut tight, or might there be a few inadvertently open? If an entrance remains open, it could trip a sensor. If it just so happens that your household consistently fails to shut an entry point, you might want to incorporate a smart locking mechanism that automatically locks when your system goes live. Unfortunately, windows require more manual maintenance, especially if you have a family member who enjoys to rest with a cracked window. Luckily, your Vivint alarm system makes it a breeze to deactivate that alarm while protecting the remainder of the residence.
