What happens when ADT battery dies?

Answered by Tom Adger

When my ADT battery died, I experienced a frustrating situation where my security system was rendered useless. It was during a power outage, and I relied on the backup battery to keep my alarm system operational. However, after a few hours, the battery ran out, and my security system shut down completely.

Without power, the alarm system couldn’t function, and I was left vulnerable without the added protection it provided. It was a stressful experience, as I realized that my home was no longer being actively monitored and any potential intruders would go undetected.

In retrospect, I wish I had been more proactive in finding a solution to this problem. I should have contacted my alarm company and explained my concerns regarding power outages and the limitations of the backup battery. By communicating my specific needs, they might have been able to provide alternative solutions or suggest additional power sources to keep my security system running during blackouts.

So, if you’re in a similar situation and want to avoid the automatic triggering of your house alarm during a power outage, I highly recommend reaching out to your alarm company. Clearly explain your concerns and ask for assistance in finding a suitable solution. They may have options available that can ensure your security system remains operational even when the main power source is unavailable.

When an ADT battery dies, your security system will cease to function without an alternative power source. To avoid this situation, it’s crucial to communicate your specific needs to your alarm company and seek their guidance in finding a solution. By taking proactive steps, you can ensure that your home remains protected even during power outages.
