Tips To Control Your Orlando Home Security With Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Your home defense can now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation equipment. To command it all you can use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. When you’re not on location, you can control your Orlando home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Orlando home security system using your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative can guide you through the initial set-up. After you’ve decided on your log-in credentials, you can enter it on other phones or tablets. To arm your home’s security, press the shield icon. You can also access any connected equipment from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to control components throughout your home with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when you left? All you have to do is access the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, view cameras, turn lights on or off, turn up the thermostat, by touching the right icon within the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your mobile device when any of your connected security elements detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Orlando home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time video feed of your residence and surroundings when cameras are turned on. Peruse live footage from any connected camera directly from your mobile device, and record short video snapshots or a single image, and playback lengthier videos as you like. In the event people arrive at your door – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio capability to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you will enjoy access to several high-tech features. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by designing a customized scene. In this area, you may program how your components operate together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Make a bedtime scene that turns off all the downstairs smart lights, flips on the exterior entry light, lowers the thermostat, and arms your alarm system. Next, you can set a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you would like even more control, you might allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your residence secure itself by locking the doors, shutting off the smart lights, and engaging your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in from another day in the office, your property will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
