Tips To Control Your Greenville Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your home defense can include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation devices. To command all of these elements you can use your central command touchscreen when you are home. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Greenville home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Greenville home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your installer will instruct you through the initial set-up. Once you have created your log-in credentials, you may use it with other smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your your alarms, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access every device from this convenient interface, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to command devices around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when you left? Just access your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to arm your system, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, change the temperature, by using the right icon within the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Greenville home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual glimpse into your property if your surveillance is operating. Access live video from your surveillance system right from your cell phone, and keep shorter segments or a single image, and playback more extensive recordings as you like. If guests stop at your house – the mail person, a salesman, or a relative -- take advantage of the 2-way audio feature to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the main menu, you will enjoy access to some high-tech settings. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by designing a customized scene. In this area, you are able to program how devices operate together, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Make a bedtime scene that switches off the common-area smart lighting, activates the exterior entry light, reduces the thermostat, 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 the main hub or the app. You can now have your property
“shut-down” by locking the doors, shutting off the lighting, and engaging your security system when you drive away. When you arrive after a long day’s work, your property will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and turning off the alarms.
