A great deal of false alarms in Davenport could be averted
Like diagnosing any issue, the best course of action is to review the owner’s instruction booklet. Make sure all your components are installed appropriately from your perspective by:
- Running a diagnostic with your smart hub.
- Visually check each sensor to ensure it didn't become dislodged or need fresh batteries.
- Check your scheduling to ensure that your home’s security isn’t engaging at inappropriate times.
- Be certain that all new smart devices are configured properly and aren't disrupting your home’s alarm.
Call your Vivint agent if you are still having problems cutting down false alarms in your Davenport home. They'll be happy to send out a tech to inspect your setup.
Investigate your windows and doors
If your configuration seems to be OK, the next measure is to do a sweep of the house. Are all your entries shut tight, or might there be a few inadvertently open? If an access point is left unsecured, it could trip an activated sensor. If it just so happens that your household constantly neglects to secure an entrance, you could implement a smart locking system that automatically locks when your system is activated. Unfortunately, windows require more hands-on attention, especially if you have a loved one who prefers to sleep with an open window. Thankfully, your Vivint home security system makes it easy to disengage that sensor while still guarding the rest of the residence.
