Ways To Control Your Florence Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection can include smart locks, flood sensors, and a wide array of home automation components. To command it all you are able to make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you may control your Florence home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Florence home security system through your cell phone is by downloading ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your rep will instruct you through the basic configuration. When you’ve decided on your username and password information, you are able to enter it on other phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your system, tap the shield icon. You are able to access every device from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your cell phone allows you to control devices around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when you left? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, view cameras, turn lights on or off, change the temperature, by hitting the right icon inside the app. You can even get automatic notifications on your cell phone in the event any of your security devices detect an issue.

Get A Better View

If you control your Florence home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your residence and surroundings when cameras are turned on. Peruse live video from your surveillance system right from your phone, and record short clips or still images, and access more extensive recordings as desired. Then when people arrive at your door – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk feature to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you will find some advanced features. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by designing a customized scene. In this area, you can designate how your security elements operate together, and when you want them to turn on or off. Create a end-of-day scene that shuts down your common-area smart lights, flips on the outside entrance light, lowers the temperature, and activates your overall security alarm. Next, you can set a wake-up scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you’re looking for even more control, you can turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your home prepare itself by activating locks, shutting off the lights, and turning on your security alarm when you depart for work. Upon your return from a long day’s work, your home will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming the alarms.
