Ways To Control Your Atlanta Home Security Using Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection may incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a wide array of home automation components. To manage all of these elements you are able to make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. If you’re away, you can control your Atlanta home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Atlanta home security system through your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your ADT representative should walk you through the initial set-up. After you have created your unique information, you can use it with additional devices. When wanting to engage your your alarms, tap the shield icon. You are able to access every device from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

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 secure the front door when you left? All you have to do is access your ADT mobile app. You are able to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, alter light levels, turn up your HVAC, by touching the right icon inside the app. You will stay connected with instant alerts on your phone when any of your security devices sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Atlanta home security system with your phone, you can get an actual view of your residence and surroundings when cameras are active. Peruse live views from your surveillance system directly from your cell phone, and record short clips or still images, and playback more extensive recordings as you like. Then when people stop at your house – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a friend -- simply utilize the 2-way audio functionality to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the main menu, you will enjoy access to some advanced options. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want through the use of a custom scene. Here, you can specify how your security elements operate together, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Set a nighttime scene that shuts down the downstairs smart bulbs, activates the porch light, reduces the comfort levels, and activates your alarm system. Then customize a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you might allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your home secure itself by activating locks, shutting off the lighting, and arming your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Upon your return after another day in the office, your house will spring to action by automatically opening the garage and turning off your alarm.
