Tips for Security System MaintenanceBy Home Security Source Nov 30, 2010 | 11:25:00 amPosted in: Burglary & Loss Prevention, Fire Prevention, Home
Things work best when you take good care of them. This includes your home security system. Here are a few quick tips to help keep your system performing at the highest quality.
Test your system regularly. It is recommended that you test your system as often as possible and read the system manual to follow its suggested testing intervals. Also be sure to keep a simple system instruction sheet handy to help avoid confusion.
Know how to use your system. Every home is different, so there may be settings you don’t use very often or may not fully understand. The entire family should know how to arm and disarm the system as part of your emergency plan. Get up to date on keypad codes and combinations by watching the ADT Home Alarm System Demo.
Speak up. If you have questions about your system or if something seems like it needs to be repaired, contact your security provider immediately. Also be sure to report any changes in the layout of your home, setup or contact information.
