Many false alarms in Oklahoma City can be avoided
Like diagnosing any concern, the first thing to do is read the manual. Be certain that all devices are set up correctly from your perspective by:
- Executing a diagnostic through your smart hub touchscreen.
- Visually check each device to be certain it didn't get knocked out of place or need a new battery.
- Look over your preset schedules to make sure that your home’s security isn’t engaging at inopportune times.
- Ensure all integrated smart implements are installed properly and aren't disrupting your system.
Contact your Vivint representative if you continue to have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Oklahoma City home. They'll be happy to schedule a trained expert to inspect your setup.
Inspect your doors and windows
If your system checks out alright, the next measure is to do a sweep of the house. Are your windows and doors closed tightly, or do you find some mistakenly open? If an access point remains open, it may trigger a sensor. If it just so happens that your family constantly fails to secure an entrance, you might want to implement a smart locking system that locks automatically when your home security is engaged. Unfortunately, windows take more manual maintenance, mainly if you have a family member who prefers to rest with a cracked window. Thankfully, your Vivint home security system makes it easy to deactivate that sensor while still shielding the remainder of the residence.
