Can you side step false alarms in Salinas?
Just like you would address any concern, the initial step is to reference the manual. Ensure all alarms and sensors are installed appropriately from your perspective by:
- Executing a diagnostic through your smart hub.
- Manually check each component to make sure it didn't become dislodged or need fresh batteries.
- Look over your scheduling to ensure that your home’s security isn’t engaging at inappropriate times.
- Ensure all recently added smart devices are configured properly and aren't disrupting your home’s alarm.
Contact your Vivint agent if you are still having trouble cutting down false alarms in your Salinas system. They'll gladly schedule a tehnician to inspect your setup.
Inspect your windows and doors
When your installation appears to be installed properly, the ensuing measure is to do a sweep of your residence. Are all your entries shut tight, or might there be a few mistakenly cracked? If an entry point stays unlatched, it could activate an activated sensor. If it just so happens that your family consistently fails to close an entry point, you could incorporate a smart locking system that secures automatically when your home security is engaged. Unfortunately, windows need extra hands-on attention, especially if you have someone who likes to sleep with an open window. Fortunately, your Vivint installation makes it a breeze to turn off that alarm while protecting the rest of the residence.
