How To Control Your Elizabethtown Home Security With Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Security might now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation devices. To command all of these elements you can utilize your central command touchscreen when you are on site. When you’re not on location, you can control your Elizabethtown home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Elizabethtown home security system with your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your rep will instruct you through the basic configuration. When you have established your username and password information, you are able to log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your system, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access any connected equipment from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to control devices throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to lock the door when leaving for the day? Simply access the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, check camera footage, alter light levels, increase or decrease the temperature, by using the right icon within the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your cell phone if any of your security devices detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Elizabethtown home security system with your phone, you can get a live video feed of your property if your surveillance is operating. Explore live views from any connected camera straight from your mobile device, and save short clips or a single image, and watch longer segments as desired. Then when people show up – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- take advantage of the two-way talk functionality to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the primary menu, you will find several modern features. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by creating your own unique scene. By using this feature, you can specify how your components operate with each other, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Set a bedtime scene that turns off all the common-area smart lights, flips on the outside entrance light, reduces the temperature, and engages your alarm system. Next, you can customize a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you can allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your residence “shut-down” by operating locks, shutting off the lights, and turning on your alarms when you leave the driveway. Upon your return after another day in the office, your house will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your security system.
