Ways To Control Your New Haven Home Security Using Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Security may now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation devices. To control all of these elements you can utilize your central command touchscreen when you are on site. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your New Haven home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your New Haven home security system using your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. Once the download is complete, your ADT representative can guide you through the basic configuration. Once you have created your unique details, you are able to enter it on other devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access all components from this convenient interface, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to control components within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to engage the front door lock on the way out? All you have to do is go to your ADT mobile app. You are able to set your alarm, view cameras, alter light levels, increase or decrease the thermostat, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. You will stay connected with instant alerts on your phone when any of your components detect an issue.

Improve Your View

By controlling your New Haven home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live view of your property when cameras are turned on. Peruse live views from all your security cameras straight from your mobile device, and keep shorter segments or an image, and playback longer segments as desired. Then when people stop at your house – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the bi-directional audio functionality to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you will enjoy access to several modern features. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by creating a customized scene. By using this feature, you can designate how your security elements operate together, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Set a end-of-day scene that shuts down the common-area smart bulbs, flips on the outside entrance light, reduces the temperature, and engages your alarms. Then customize a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want even more control, you might allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your residence prepare itself by activating locks, shutting off the smart lights, and turning on your security alarm when you leave the driveway. When you arrive after a long day’s work, your house will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and turning off your security system.
