Tips To Control Your Tempe Home Security Using Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Security might now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a wide array of home automation devices. To command all of these elements you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are home. If you’re away, you can control your Tempe home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Tempe home security system using your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your rep should walk you through the basic configuration. Once you have created your username and password credentials, you are able to enter it on other devices. To arm your system, touch the shield icon. You can also access every device from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to control devices within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Forgot to lock the door when leaving for the day? Just open the ADT Control App. You are able to arm your system, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon in your app. You can even get automatic notifications on your cell phone in the event any of your components detect an issue.

Improve Your View

When you control your Tempe home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time view of your property when cameras are active. Access live video from all your security cameras right from your phone, and save shorter segments or a single image, and access lengthier recordings as you wish. Then when people arrive at your door – the mail person, a salesman, or a relative -- simply utilize the 2-way audio feature to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the central menu, you will enjoy access to several advanced features. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by creating your own unique scene. In this area, you are able to designate how devices operate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Make a bedtime scene that switches off your downstairs smart lighting, turns on the outside entrance light, lowers the temperature, and engages your alarm system. Then generate a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when you need to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you could turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your home “shut-down” by activating locks, turning off the smart lights, and turning on your alarms when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in following your long day on the job, your house will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your alarm.
