Home security systems provide protection and security for the family and home and there are several ways to prevent false alarms being triggered. When the ADT alarm system is triggered it will contact the monitoring center and unless the family calls to say that it was a false alarm the police and other personnel will be sent to the home. This can be embarrassing and if it occurs often the home owner can be financially responsible for these authorities traveling to their residence.
The first thing that should be done is to speak to the installer to learn about the ADT home security system, they will be able to answer questions that can help to ensure there will not be false alarms. The second thing that can be done is to educate the family how to properly use the system, which will make them knowledgeable and comfortable using the alarm system. In order to avoid false alarms when the family is in the home the ADT security system should be armed so that only the exterior of the home is protected and not the interior. This means that the family is able to move freely about the home with no fear of triggering the alarm system, but they are protected from burglars breaking into the house.
There is duel technology that can be used to prevent false alarms, which is a combination of infrared devices and microwave devices. The infrared measures the temperature changes and will detect movement. The microwave devices are sensitive to objects moving in their field of view. Incorporating both can help to prevent false alarms, because both devices must be activated before the alarm is triggered.
Another part of ADT home security technology is the keychain remote, which can help the family to avoid false alarms. This is a remote that is small enough to be carried and it can arm and disarm the ADT alarm, but it can also turn on lights. This makes it easy to go out the door and then arm the system, plus it is easier for younger members of the family to use instead of the keypad on the wall. This can make certain that when no one is home the ADT home security system is armed against break-ins, smoke, fire and high levels of carbon monoxide. It also means there is no rush to the wall keypad to disarm the alarm system before it is triggered when entering the house.
Using these tips can help to avoid false alarms that will result in the police and other authorities arriving at the home when there is actually no emergency. That can be embarrassing and it can also deter families from using the ADT home security system and that can result in being burglarized. Families and houses need the protection of a security system and when everyone in the family understands how it works and how to use it, then there will be few or no false alarms.
