Ways To Control Your Memphis Home Security From Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection may include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation devices. To manage all of these elements you can use your central command touchscreen when you are on site. When you’re not on location, you can control your Memphis home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Memphis home security system through your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your installer will instruct you through the proper settings. After you’ve decided on your log-in information, you can use it with additional smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your system, tap the shield icon. You are able to access every device from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to control components throughout your home with the effortless touch of your finger. Forgot to engage the front door lock when you left? Simply open the ADT Control App. You have the ability to set your alarm, view cameras, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease the thermostat, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone when any of your components detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Memphis home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual view of your property wherever a camera is active. Peruse live views from your surveillance system right from your mobile device, and record short clips or still images, and access lengthier segments as you wish. If people stop at your house – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the bi-directional audio feature to talk with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the main menu, you will enjoy access to several advanced options. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by designing your own unique scene. In this area, you are able to designate how devices operate together, and when you want them to activate or shut down. Make a end-of-day scene that shuts down your common-area smart lighting, flips on the porch light, turns down the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. You can also generate a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you could activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your property
“shut-down” by activating locks, shutting off the lights, and arming your security system when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in from a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disengaging the alarms.
