A word to the wise before you try to reset your Lima home security system, read your owner’s manual first. You don't want to damage your system as a result of touching something incorrectly.

You can engage the ADT Command touchscreen or bring up your ADT security app and tap the shield icon and submit your security code to deactivate the system for these instances. You might receive notification from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

When you lose power from high winds or other factors, you might begin hearing a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. This lets you know that the alarm is using the backup battery. To reset the alarm and stop the constant chirping, you need to disarm/rearm the system.

However, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you may need a full reset of your system. Heed the directives in the instruction manual -- usually by entering your PIN number and tapping the designated button two times -- and you should be back to normal. You may keep hearing chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it might not end until the battery charges entirely.

When the new battery is put in place, move the alarm panel out of "Test Mode" and restore normal operations. If the control panel fails to notice the component or the battery light remains on, you could require a total reset of the system.
