Although nearly a year old, all of the information in this article is still relevant. ADT volume can get annoying; scroll down to learn how to turn it down. 


Turning down the volume on your ADT device with ADT Pulse and other packages is something that many people find themselves frustrated with. Fortunately, we’re here to help you adjust the volume on your ADT alarm system so that it no longer continues to annoy you.

The first thing to remember is that before you start pressing buttons and turning knobs, you have to figure out where exactly the sounds are coming from. If sounds are being admitted from your ADT security system, are they coming from the keypad inside your home or the siren alarm outside?

The bad news is that if the siren volume on your ADT system is too loud, you generally cannot do anything about it. This volume is pre-set on most models and will not change. On the other hand, you can change the volume on your indoor keypad for most models.

How to Turn Down the Volume

Keep in mind that all systems are different, so you’ll need to consult your individual security system’s user’s manual to know exactly how to change the volume on your unit. In general, however, you can follow these directions for turning down the volume on your ADT alarm.

1. Go to your keypad and input (#) and (2).

2. Push the number (6), which is generally the button that controls the “volume down.”

3. Keep in mind that the number (3) above (6) is generally the “volume up” button in case you want to turn the volume back up.

Staying Safe From Scams

One thing to remember is that not all home security systems are alike. It’s essential to only buy your system from a reputable dealer. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has unfortunately found that some systems are complete scams, aimed to dupe homeowners into actually giving away access to their home and privacy.

Before you do business with anyone selling a home security or alarm system, whether they come to your door or you seek them out, the FTC and your state Attorney General urge you to ask potential contractors for the following information:

  • Contractor’s name
  • Street address (no P.O. Box)
  • Telephone number
  • Contractor’s license number
  • State that issued the license
  • Name under which the license is filed
