Tips To Control Your Fort Worth Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Your property’s protection might include smart locks, flood sensors, and a wide array of home automation devices. To manage it all you can make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are on site. Or, you can control your Fort Worth home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To start controlling your Fort Worth home security system using your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. Once the download is complete, your ADT representative can guide you through the initial set-up. When you’ve decided on your log-in information, you may enter it on other phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your home’s security, press the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access every device from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to command components within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when leaving for the day? Simply open your ADT mobile app. You are able to activate your overall home security, view cameras, alter light levels, turn up the thermostat, by hitting the right icon inside the app. Then receive instant alerts on your cell phone when any of your components sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Fort Worth home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual view of your property wherever a camera is active. Peruse live video from all your security cameras right from your mobile device, and record short clips or an image, and playback longer recordings as desired. In the event people stop at your house – the mail person, a salesman, or a friend -- take advantage of the two-way talk capability to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

When you go to the central menu, you will enjoy access to some advanced settings. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by designing a customized scene. By using this feature, you may designate how your security elements communicate with each other, and when you want them to turn on or off. Set a end-of-day scene that shuts down all the main living area smart bulbs, turns on the exterior entry light, lowers the comfort levels, and activates your overall security alarm. You can also generate a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you want even more control, you could turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your property
“shut-down” by activating locks, switching off the smart lights, and arming your security system when you depart for work. When you arrive after a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disarming the alarms.
