Ways To Control Your Waco Home Security From Your Smartphone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense can incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation components. To control all of these elements you are able to utilize your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. If you’re away, you can control your Waco home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Waco home security system through your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your installer can guide you through the initial set-up. After you have decided on your unique details, you may log on using additional smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your system, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access all components from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to command integrated equipment throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when you left? Simply go to ADT Control. You can arm your system, check camera footage, alter light levels, change your HVAC, by touching the right icon in your app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your phone when any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Waco home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual view of your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is turned on. Access live views from any connected camera straight from your cell phone, and record short video snapshots or still images, and access longer recordings as you like. Then when visitors arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the 2-way audio capability to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the central menu, you will find a range of modern options. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by designing a customized scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how your security elements communicate together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a nighttime scene that turns off all the main living area smart bulbs, flips on the exterior entry light, turns down the thermostat, and engages your alarms. Then customize a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when the time comes to get out of bed.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you can turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your property
secure itself by locking the doors, turning off the smart lights, and engaging your security system when you drive away. Then when you pull in after another day in the office, your house will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disarming your alarm.
