Numerous false alarms in Bakersfield are avoidable
Just like you would address any concern, the initial step is to read the manual. Make sure all your components are set up correctly from your end by:
- Running a diagnostic through your smart hub.
- Physically check each sensor to make sure it didn't get knocked out of place or need a battery change.
- Look over your schedules and presets to make sure that your home’s security isn’t arming at inopportune times.
- Ensure all recently added smart implements are incorporated properly and aren't conflicting with your alarms.
Call your customer service specialist if you are still having problems cutting down false alarms in your Bakersfield system. They'll be pleased to dispatch a tech to inspect your system.
Investigate your doors and windows
If your installation appears to be OK, the ensuing course of action is to do an investigation of your property. Are your doors and widows closed tightly, or do you find some inadvertently open? If an access point is left unsecured, it could activate an activated sensor. If your family consistently neglects to shut an entrance, you can incorporate a smart lock that automatically locks when the alarm is engaged. Unfortunately, windows need more hands-on attention, especially if you have a family member who likes to fall asleep with a window cracked. Thankfully, your Vivint alarm system makes it a breeze to turn off that device while still shielding the rest of the residence.
