Tips To Control Your Johnson City Home Security From Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Your property’s protection might include smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation components. To control it all you are able to use your central command touchscreen when you are home. Or, you may control your Johnson City home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Johnson City home security system with your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative will instruct you through the basic configuration. After you’ve decided on your unique credentials, you can use it with additional phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access all components from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to command components throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door on the way out? All you have to do is open ADT Control. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, view cameras, adjust the lights, increase or decrease the thermostat, by using the right icon within the app. You can even get instant alerts on your phone in the event any of your components are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Johnson City home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual view of your interior and exterior when cameras are turned on. Explore live video from any connected camera directly from your phone, and record short video snapshots or still images, and access longer videos as desired. Then when guests stop at your house – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio functionality to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you will find some modern settings. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. In this area, you can specify how your security elements operate together, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Create a end-of-day scene that shuts down your common-area smart lighting, turns on the outside entrance light, turns down the temperature, and arms your alarms. Next, you can generate a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get your household going.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you can turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your residence “shut-down” by operating locks, switching off the lighting, and arming your security system when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in following your long day on the job, your property will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your security system.
