Tips To Control Your Jefferson City Home Security From Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection can incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation components. To manage it all you are able to use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. If you’re away, you may control your Jefferson City home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Jefferson City home security system using your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your installer should walk you through the basic configuration. After you’ve established your username and password details, you are able to log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your home’s security, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access any connected equipment from this convenient interface, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone gives you the ability to control devices within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock on the way out? Simply access your ADT mobile app. You can activate your overall home security, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change the temperature, by touching the correct icon in your app. You can even get automatic notifications on your cell phone in the event any of your security devices are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Jefferson City home security system with your phone, you have a live video feed of your property when cameras are active. Peruse live footage from any connected camera directly from your phone, and record short video snapshots or a single image, and watch longer videos as you wish. Then when guests show up – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a friend -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio feature to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you can explore a range of modern settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want by designing your own unique scene. In this area, you may specify how your security elements interact with each other, and when you want them to turn on or off. Make a nighttime scene that switches off all the main living area smart lights, activates the exterior entry light, reduces the temperature, and arms your alarm system. Then set a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you would like even more control, you might activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your property
secure itself by locking the doors, turning off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you drive away. Upon your return following another day in the office, your home will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your security system.
