How To Control Your Philadelphia Home Security From Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Security may incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation equipment. To command all of these elements you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are on site. If you’re away, you may control your Philadelphia home security with a phone.

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

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To start controlling your Philadelphia home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the proper settings. After you have created your unique credentials, you are able to log on using various devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, press the shield icon. You can also access every device from this convenient interface, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone gives you the ability to manage components around your house with the effortless touch of your finger. Forgot to lock the door on the way out? All you have to do is open your ADT mobile app. You can activate your overall home security, view cameras, turn lights on or off, turn up the temperature, by using the correct icon inside the app. Then receive automatic notifications on your cell phone in the event any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Philadelphia home security system with your phone, you have an actual video feed of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is active. Explore live views from your surveillance system right from your phone, and save short video snapshots or still images, and access more extensive recordings as desired. Then when guests stop at your house – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the bi-directional audio capability to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you can explore a range of modern settings. Schedule your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of your own unique scene. By using this feature, you may designate how your components communicate with each other, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Make a bedtime scene that turns off your downstairs smart lights, flips on the outside entrance light, lowers the thermostat, and engages your alarms. Then customize a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you could allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your residence prepare itself by operating locks, switching off the lighting, and turning on your security alarm when you leave the driveway. When you arrive after a long day’s work, your house will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and turning off the alarms.
