Can you avoid false alarms in St. Louis?
Like diagnosing any issue, the first thing to do is reference the owner’s instruction booklet. Make sure all devices are installed appropriately from your perspective by:
- Performing a checkup through your smart hub touchscreen.
- Visually check each component to ensure it didn't slip or need a new battery.
- Inspect your preset schedules to ensure that your alarms aren’t activating at inappropriate times.
- Be certain that all new smart implements are configured in the proper fashion and aren't interfering with your home’s alarm.
Reach out to your Vivint specialist if you continue to have problems cutting down false alarms in your St. Louis security system. They'll be pleased to send out a trained expert to inspect your setup.
Investigate your windows and doors
In the event your installation seems to be alright, the subsequent measure is to do an investigation of your residence. Are all your entries closed tightly, or are any mistakenly ajar? If an access point is left unsecured, it might trip a sensor. If it just so happens that your family routinely forgets to close an entry point, you might want to incorporate a smart locking system that locks automatically when the alarm is engaged. Regrettably, windows take more hands-on attention, mainly if you have a loved one who likes to sleep with an open window. Luckily, your Vivint home security system makes it easy to deactivate that device while still shielding the remaining areas of the house.
