Ways To Control Your Amarillo Home Security From Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection may include smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation components. To control all of these elements you are able to use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. Or, you have the ability to control your Amarillo home security with a phone.

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

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Amarillo home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your installer should walk you through the initial set-up. Once you’ve created your username and password details, you are able to use it with additional smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your home’s security, tap the shield icon. You can also access any connected equipment from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to command components around your house with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when leaving for the day? Simply access ADT Control. You have the ability to arm your system, view cameras, alter light levels, increase or decrease the temperature, by hitting the right icon in your app. You can even get automatic notifications on your mobile device when any of your components are triggered.

Improve Your View

When you control your Amarillo home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live view of your residence and surroundings when cameras are turned on. Access live views from any connected camera straight from your phone, and record shorter segments or a single image, and watch more extensive videos as you wish. Then when guests stop at your house – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the bi-directional audio feature to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

When you go to the central menu, you will find a range of high-tech features. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by creating a customized scene. By using this feature, you are able to specify how your security elements communicate together, and when you want them to turn on or off. Set a end-of-day scene that turns off the common-area smart lights, flips on the outside entrance light, reduces the temperature, and activates your alarm system. You can also generate a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your residence “shut-down” by operating locks, turning off the smart lights, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in from another day in the office, your property will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
