Many false alarms in Medford can be avoided
Just like you would address any issue, the initial step is to read the guidebook. Ensure all devices are connected properly from your perspective by:
- Running a system analysis with your smart hub.
- Manually evaluate each component to ensure it didn't become dislodged or need fresh batteries.
- Inspect your preset schedules to ensure that your alarms aren’t activating at inopportune times.
- Make sure all integrated smart implements are configured correctly and aren't disrupting your home’s alarm.
Reach out to your service representative if you are still having trouble cutting down false alarms in your Medford system. They'll be happy to dispatch a trained expert to check your setup.
Inspect your doors and windows
In the event your system appears to be OK, the next step is to thoroughly inspect your property. Are all your windows and doors closed tightly, or might there be a few inadvertently open? If an entrance remains unlatched, it might trip a motion sensor. If it just so happens that your household consistently forgets to close an entry point, you might want to incorporate a smart locking system that automatically locks when your home security is activated. Unfortunately, windows require extra manual maintenance, especially if you have someone who likes to sleep with a cracked window. Luckily, your Vivint home security system makes it easy to deactivate that sensor while still guarding the remainder of the property.
