A great deal of false alarms in Chico could be averted
Just like you would address any issue, the best course of action is to read the manual. Be certain that all alarms and sensors are installed correctly on your end by:
- Executing a diagnostic with your smart hub touchscreen.
- Visually check each component to make sure it didn't become dislodged or need fresh batteries.
- Check your schedules and presets to be certain that your system isn’t activating at unsuitable times.
- Ensure all new smart implements are installed correctly and aren't interfering with your home’s alarm.
Reach out to your Vivint representative if you are still having problems cutting down false alarms in your Chico security system. They'll be happy to dispatch a tech to examine your equipment.
Investigate your windows and doors
If your system appears to be OK, the subsequent step is to do an investigation of the house. Are all your doors and widows closed tightly, or are any accidentally cracked? If an access point remains unsecured, it could trigger a motion sensor. If your family constantly forgets to shut a door, you could implement a smart locking mechanism that automatically locks when the alarm is activated. Sadly, windows need more manual maintenance, particularly if you have a family member who likes to fall asleep with a cracked window. Thankfully, your Vivint alarm system makes it easy to disengage that alarm while protecting the rest of the property.
