Ways To Control Your Erie Home Security With Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense may incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation devices. To command it all you can make use of your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. If you’re away, you may control your Erie home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a breeze.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Erie home security system using your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your mobile device. At installation, your installer should walk you through the proper settings. Once you’ve created your log-in credentials, you are able to use it with various phones or tablets. To arm your your alarms, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to command integrated equipment within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to engage the front door lock on the way out? All you have to do is open the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, view cameras, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease the temperature, by hitting the correct icon in your app. You can even get instant alerts on your phone when any of your components detect an issue.

Improve Your View

When you control your Erie home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live video feed of your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is turned on. Explore live video from all your security cameras straight from your mobile device, and keep short video snapshots or an image, and access more extensive segments as you like. If visitors show up – the postal worker, a salesman, or a family member -- simply utilize the 2-way audio functionality to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the central menu, you will enjoy access to a range of advanced options. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want by creating a custom scene. Here, you are able to program how your security elements interact together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a end-of-day scene that shuts down your downstairs smart bulbs, activates the exterior entry light, reduces the temperature, and activates your overall security alarm. You can also set a wake-up scene that does the opposite when you need to get your household going.

If you would like to get more technical, you might activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your home secure itself by locking the doors, turning off the smart lights, and arming your security system when you depart for work. When you arrive from another day in the office, your home will come to life by automatically opening the garage and turning off the alarms.
