Many false alarms in Riverside could be averted
Just like you would address any problem, the initial step is to review the owner’s instruction booklet. Be certain that all devices are connected correctly on your end by:
- Executing a system analysis via your smart hub.
- Manually check each sensor to be certain it didn't get knocked out of place or need a new battery.
- Inspect your scheduling to be certain that your home’s security isn’t activating at unsuitable times.
- Make sure all recently added smart devices are installed correctly and aren't conflicting with your system.
Reach out to your customer service specialist if you continue to have issues cutting down false alarms in your Riverside system. They'll be happy to send out a tech to check your setup.
Inspect your doors and windows
If your configuration checks out OK, the subsequent course of action is to thoroughly inspect your property. Are all your windows and doors shut tight, or are any mistakenly ajar? If an access point stays unsecured, it could activate a sensor. If it just so happens that your household consistently fails to shut an entry point, you could incorporate a smart locking mechanism that secures automatically when the alarm is engaged. Regrettably, windows need more physical effort, mainly if you have someone who enjoys to rest with a cracked window. Thankfully, your Vivint alarm system makes it a breeze to deactivate that sensor while still shielding the remainder of the property.
