Many false alarms in Lexington can be avoided
Just like you would address any problem, the first thing to do is review the owner’s instruction booklet. Be certain that all devices are set up appropriately from your end by:
- Running a system analysis with your smart hub.
- Visually evaluate each device to ensure it didn't become dislodged or need fresh batteries.
- Inspect your preset schedules to ensure that your system isn’t engaging at inappropriate times.
- Ensure all integrated smart implements are configured properly and aren't interfering with your home’s alarm.
Reach out to your Vivint specialist if you still have issues cutting down false alarms in your Lexington system. They'll be happy to schedule a trained expert to inspect your system.
Check your windows and doors
If your installation appears to be installed properly, the subsequent course of action is to do a sweep of the house. Are your entries shut tight, or are any accidentally cracked? If an access point is left unsecured, it might activate a motion sensor. If it just so happens that your family routinely forgets to shut an entry point, you could incorporate a smart locking system that secures automatically when your home security is engaged. Sadly, windows require additional physical effort, especially if you have a loved one who enjoys to fall asleep with an open window. Luckily, your Vivint home security system makes it a breeze to disengage that alarm while protecting the rest of the residence.
