Can you side step false alarms in Champaign?
Like diagnosing any issue, the first thing to do is read the guidebook. Be certain that all devices are set up correctly from your end by:
- Running a checkup through your touchscreen smart hub.
- Visually inspect each component to make sure it didn't get knocked out of place or need fresh batteries.
- Inspect your schedules and presets to ensure that your alarms aren’t arming at unsuitable times.
- Be certain that all recently added smart components are installed in the proper fashion and aren't disrupting your alarms.
Reach out to your Vivint representative if you continue to have issues cutting down false alarms in your Champaign home. They'll be pleased to send out a tehnician to inspect your system.
Check your entry points
If your installation seems to be installed properly, the next step is to thoroughly inspect your residence. Are your windows and doors shut tight, or might there be a few inadvertently cracked? If an entry point stays open, it could trigger a sensor. If your family routinely fails to secure a door, you can incorporate a smart locking mechanism that secures automatically when the alarm is engaged. Regrettably, windows need extra hands-on attention, mainly if you have someone who likes to fall asleep with a window cracked. Thankfully, your Vivint installation makes it simple to turn off that device while still shielding the remainder of the property.
