Can you avoid false alarms in Washington DC?
Like diagnosing any concern, the first thing to do is read the owner’s instruction booklet. Ensure all alarms and sensors are installed appropriately on your end by:
- Running a checkup through your smart hub touchscreen.
- Manually inspect each sensor to ensure it didn't become dislodged or need a battery change.
- Look over your schedules and presets to make sure that your system isn’t engaging at inopportune times.
- Ensure all recently added smart implements are installed properly and aren't conflicting with your system.
Call your Vivint agent if you continue to have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Washington DC home. They'll be happy to schedule a trained expert to check your setup.
Check your doors and windows
When your configuration checks out OK, the subsequent course of action is to thoroughly inspect your residence. Are your doors and widows closed tightly, or do you find some mistakenly ajar? If an entrance remains unlatched, it might trip a sensor. If it just so happens that your clan consistently forgets to close a door, you might want to install a smart locking system that locks automatically when your system is activated. Regrettably, windows require extra manual maintenance, mainly if you have a loved one who prefers to sleep with an open window. Fortunately, your Vivint installation makes it simple to turn off that device while protecting the remaining areas of the residence.
