Tips To Control Your Arlington Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense might incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation components. To manage all of these elements you can make use of your central command touchscreen when you are home. Or, you may control your Arlington home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Arlington home security system using your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your ADT representative will instruct you through the initial set-up. Once you’ve decided on your unique credentials, you are able to use it with various devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to manage components throughout your home with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when leaving for the day? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, view cameras, alter light levels, turn up the thermostat, by touching the correct icon in your app. You can even get immediate updates on your mobile device in the event any of your security devices are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Arlington home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is turned on. Explore live video from all your security cameras straight from your mobile device, and record short video snapshots or still images, and watch longer recordings as you like. If visitors arrive at your door – the mail person, a salesman, or a friend -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio functionality to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you can explore some modern options. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by designing a custom 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 end-of-day scene that shuts down your downstairs smart lights, flips on the porch light, reduces the temperature, and engages your alarm system. Then set a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when you need to rise and shine.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your home secure itself by locking the doors, shutting off the lighting, and engaging your security alarm when you drive away. Upon your return after another day in the office, your property will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disengaging the alarms.
