How To Control Your Ann Arbor Home Security With Your Phone

These days, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense can include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation equipment. To control everything you are able to utilize your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Ann Arbor home security with a phone.

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

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Ann Arbor home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your installer can guide you through the basic configuration. When you have established your log-in credentials, you may log on using various devices. To arm your system, touch the shield icon. You also have the ability to access every device from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to manage devices throughout your home with the effortless touch of your finger. Forgot to secure the front door on the way out? Just go to the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, see live video feeds, adjust the lights, turn up your HVAC, by using the right icon in your app. Then receive instant alerts on your mobile device in the event any of your security devices are triggered.

Get A Better View

If you control your Ann Arbor home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live glimpse into your interior and exterior wherever a camera is operating. Explore live video from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and save short clips or still images, and watch lengthier recordings as you wish. If visitors arrive at your door – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the 2-way audio functionality to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

When you go to the main menu, you will find some advanced settings. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of a customized scene. Here, you are able to designate how your components communicate with one another, and when you want them to turn on or off. Set a nighttime scene that turns off all the downstairs smart lighting, flips on the outside entrance light, lowers the thermostat, and activates your overall security alarm. Next, you can generate a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you want even more control, you can turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your property
“shut-down” by locking the doors, turning off the lights, and arming your alarms when you drive away. Then when you pull in following a long day’s work, your house will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your security system.
