Tips To Control Your St. Louis Home Security Using Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system has more features than keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection might incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation devices. To command everything you can use your touchscreen hub when you are home. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your St. Louis home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your St. Louis home security system with your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your installer should walk you through the proper settings. When you’ve decided on your username and password credentials, you may enter it on other smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, press the shield icon. You also have the ability to access every device from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to control devices within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock on the way out? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You have the ability to set your alarm, view cameras, alter light levels, increase or decrease the temperature, by hitting the right icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone in the event any of your connected security elements detect an issue.

Improve Your View

By controlling your St. Louis home security system with your phone, you have an actual glimpse into your property wherever a camera is turned on. Peruse live video from any connected camera directly from your cell phone, and keep short clips or a single image, and watch lengthier segments as you like. Then when guests arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a relative -- just use the 2-way audio functionality to talk with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

In this area, you are able to specify how your security elements interact with each other, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Make a nighttime scene that switches off the downstairs smart bulbs, turns on the outside entrance light, turns down the thermostat, and engages your alarm system. Then set a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when you need to get your household going.

If you’re looking for to go even more high-tech, you can allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your residence “shut-down” by locking the doors, switching off the lights, and turning on your alarms when you drive away. Upon your return after a long day’s work, your house will come alive by automatically opening the garage and turning off your security system.
