Many false alarms in Chattanooga are avoidable
When figuring out any problem, the best course of action is to read the owner’s instruction booklet. Ensure all your components are set up properly from your end by:
- Running a diagnostic through your smart hub touchscreen.
- Visually evaluate each component to make sure it didn't slip or need fresh batteries.
- Inspect your schedules and presets to make sure that your system isn’t arming at inappropriate times.
- Ensure all new smart components are configured in the proper fashion and aren't interfering with your alarms.
Contact your customer service specialist if you still have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Chattanooga home. They'll gladly send out a tech to inspect your system.
Inspect your doors and windows
In the event your system seems to be installed properly, the ensuing measure is to thoroughly inspect your property. Are your entries tightly secured, or are any accidentally open? If an entry point stays open, it could trigger a motion sensor. If your household consistently fails to shut a door, you might want to install a smart lock that locks automatically when your home security is engaged. Unfortunately, windows require more hands-on attention, mainly if you have a loved one who enjoys to sleep with an open window. Thankfully, your Vivint alarm system makes it easy to deactivate that sensor while still guarding the remainder of the residence.
