Ways To Control Your Rochester Home Security With Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection might now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation components. To control it all you are able to make use of your central command touchscreen when you are home. When you’re not on location, you can control your Rochester home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Rochester home security system with your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative will instruct you through the basic configuration. After you’ve created your unique information, you may use it with additional devices. If you want to activate your system, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access every device from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to manage devices around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock on the way out? All you have to do is access ADT Control. You are able to set your alarm, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change your HVAC, by hitting the right icon inside the app. Then receive instant alerts on your cell phone in the event any of your security devices are triggered.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Rochester home security system with your phone, you have an actual view of your interior and exterior when cameras are active. Access live video from all your security cameras right from your cell phone, and record shorter segments or a single image, and watch longer videos as you like. If visitors arrive at your door – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio feature to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

Through the primary menu, you will find several advanced features. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by designing a customized scene. By using this feature, you can specify how devices operate with one another, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Set a end-of-day scene that turns off all the downstairs smart bulbs, activates the exterior entry light, lowers the comfort levels, and activates your alarms. Next, you can set a wake-up scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your residence secure itself by locking the doors, turning off the smart lights, and turning on your alarms when you drive away. Then when you pull in following a long day’s work, your home will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your alarm.
