How To Control Your San Diego Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection may include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To control it all you are able to use your central command touchscreen when you are home. If you’re away, you can control your San Diego home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your San Diego home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. Once the download is complete, your installer can guide you through the initial set-up. Once you’ve created your unique credentials, you may log on using other devices. If you want to activate your system, tap the shield icon. You are able to access any connected equipment from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to manage integrated equipment within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to lock the door when leaving for the day? Just open your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, view cameras, adjust the lights, increase or decrease your HVAC, by touching the correct icon within the app. You can even get immediate updates on your mobile device in the event any of your components are triggered.

Get A Better View

If you control your San Diego home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your property wherever a camera is active. Peruse live views from any connected camera straight from your phone, and record short video snapshots or still images, and playback more extensive segments as you wish. In the event visitors arrive at your door – the postal worker, a salesman, or a family member -- just use the 2-way audio capability to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

When you go to the central menu, you can explore some modern features. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by creating a customized scene. Here, you may program how your security elements operate together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Make a end-of-day scene that switches off the main living area smart lights, turns on the outside entrance light, lowers the thermostat, and engages your overall security alarm. Then set a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when you need to get out of bed.

If you would like even more control, you could activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your residence secure itself by activating locks, switching off the lights, and arming your security alarm when you depart for work. Then when you pull in following a long day’s work, your home will come alive by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
