Can you avoid false alarms in Columbia?
Just like you would address any problem, the initial step is to reference the guidebook. Ensure all devices are set up properly on your end by:
- Performing a system analysis via your touchscreen smart hub.
- Visually evaluate each sensor to make sure it didn't get knocked out of place or need a battery change.
- Inspect your preset schedules to make sure that your alarms aren’t activating at inappropriate times.
- Ensure all recently added smart components are incorporated properly and aren't disrupting your alarms.
Call your Vivint specialist if you continue to have trouble cutting down false alarms in your Columbia security system. They'll gladly send out a tehnician to inspect your equipment.
Inspect your doors and windows
When your installation appears to be installed properly, the next step is to do a sweep of your property. Are all your windows and doors shut tight, or do you find some accidentally cracked? If an entry point stays unsecured, it could trigger a motion sensor. If your family constantly fails to shut an entrance, you could install a smart locking system that locks automatically when your system is engaged. Sadly, windows need extra manual maintenance, particularly if you have a loved one who prefers to fall asleep with a cracked window. Fortunately, your Vivint alarm system makes it a breeze to disengage that device while still shielding the rest of the property.
