Ways To Control Your Dallas Home Security From Your Phone

These days, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense can incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation components. To control it all you are able to make use of your central command touchscreen when you are on site. When you’re not on location, you can control your Dallas home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Dallas home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your ADT representative can guide you through the proper settings. After you have created your username and password details, you can log on using other smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your your alarms, tap the shield icon. You are able to access all components from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to command devices within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to engage the front door lock when you left? All you have to do is open ADT Control. You have the ability to arm your system, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, change the thermostat, by touching the correct icon within the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your phone when any of your security devices sense trouble.

Get A Better View

If you control your Dallas home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live video feed of your interior and exterior wherever a camera is turned on. Explore live views from all your security cameras right from your phone, and record shorter segments or an image, and playback lengthier segments as desired. In the event people stop at your house – the postal worker, a salesman, or a family member -- just use the two-way talk capability to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you can explore some high-tech options. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by designing a custom scene. Here, you are able to designate how your security elements communicate with each other, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Make a nighttime scene that shuts down the main living area smart lighting, turns on the exterior entry light, turns down the temperature, and engages your alarms. You can also customize a wake-up scene that does the opposite when the time comes to get your household going.

If you would like even more control, you could allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your residence prepare itself by locking the doors, turning off the lighting, and turning on your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in after a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically opening the garage and turning off your security system.
