23 Mar Could Your Worn Security Keypad Buttons Compromise Your ADT Security System?
Every physical thing we own will eventually experience wear and tear. From our cars, to our homes, clothes, and even our ADT security system keypads.
Our security system keypads certainly will exhibit signs of use over the years. It’s inevitable. All the pressing on the little rubber keypads over the months and years add up. Your keypad may even exhibit wear patterns of repeated security pass code entry to arm and disarm your system!
Let’s look at some of the most common problems you may experience over the years, and why you should keep your keypad in great condition.
Wear Patterns and Becoming Unresponsive
Have you ever been to a store or a business (or maybe even notice this in your own house) that the floor in high traffic areas always seems to wear out the fastest? It makes sense.
This same type of issue may occur with your security keypad. The numbers you press most frequently may start to smudge and fade before the rest of the digits.
This could pose a threat to your home or business security system. If it appears obvious which buttons are the ones you use and the ones you dont use it will be much easier for someone to figure out your code to disarm the alarm system. This is not good for keeping the home or business secure. (Can you notice the buttons used the most on the image above?)
Also, the symbols and numbers on your keypad, depending on how long you’ve had it, may also completely rub away, or become very dirty, making it harder to identify them. (Do you see how that could become a problem?!)
Also, depending on how well you take care of of your keypad, certain digits may stop working over time.
So, what are 2 cost effective ways to solve the problem of a worn security keypad?
Get a newer version of your existing security keypad with the rubber buttons, or opt for a touch screen if possible!
