Ways To Control Your Mobile Home Security Using Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond alarms and sensors. Security can incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation components. To manage it all you can use your central command touchscreen when you are home. Or, you can control your Mobile home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Mobile home security system through your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your mobile device. At installation, your installer should walk you through the proper settings. After you have decided on your log-in details, you are able to enter it on other smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access all components from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to control devices throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to engage the front door lock on the way out? All you have to do is access the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, view cameras, alter light levels, increase or decrease the thermostat, by touching the right icon inside the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your cell phone when any of your security devices sense trouble.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Mobile home security system with your phone, you have an actual glimpse into your property if your surveillance is active. Access live footage from all your security cameras directly from your mobile device, and record short clips or a single image, and playback longer segments as desired. Then when visitors show up – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a friend -- just use the bi-directional audio capability to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the main menu, you will enjoy access to some high-tech settings. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and more through the use of a customized scene. In this area, you are able to program how devices interact with one another, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Create a nighttime scene that shuts down your downstairs smart bulbs, turns on the exterior entry light, reduces the temperature, and activates your overall security alarm. Next, you can set a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when the time comes to get out of bed.

If you want even more control, you can turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your home prepare itself by activating locks, switching off the lighting, and arming your security system when you leave the driveway. Upon your return after a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and turning off your alarm.
