Last updated: February 25, 2024

Whether you’re enjoying the comfort of your home or you’re miles away, ADT Alarms offer unparalleled peace of mind. One of the standout features of the ADT alarm system is the door chime, which alerts you whenever a door is opened. While this feature is essential for security, there may be times when you prefer to disable it, especially during gatherings or at times when you require quiet. Here’s a simple guide on how to turn off the door chime on ADT, ensuring your home’s security system works best for your needs.

Step-by-Step Guide to Turning Off the ADT Door Chime

  1. Access the ADT Keypad: Begin by opening the cover of the ADT alarm keypad. This is usually done by flipping the cover downwards, revealing the system’s controls.
  2. Locate the Chime Button: Look for the chime button on the right side of the keypad. It’s typically the third button from the top. If your keypad layout is different, refer to your user manual for the exact location.
  3. Disable the Chime: To turn off the chime, press and hold the chime button for 2 seconds. If your system features a door chime but the keypad lacks a dedicated chime button, press * then 4 simultaneously to achieve the same result.

Tips and Warnings

  • Reactivating the Chime: Should you need to enable the door chime again, simply press the chime button for 3 seconds or use the * and 4 keys just as you did to disable it.
  • Remember to Reactivate: If you disable the chime for a specific event, don’t forget to turn it back on afterward to maintain your home’s security.
