Ways To Control Your Pensacola Home Security From Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense can now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation equipment. To manage all of these elements you can use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are on site. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Pensacola home security with a phone.

Fortunately, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Pensacola home security system with your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. Once the download is complete, your installer should walk you through the proper settings. When you’ve established your log-in details, you are able to log on using other phones or tablets. If you want to activate your your alarms, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You can also 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 cell phone allows you to command integrated equipment around your house with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to lock the door on the way out? Just open ADT Control. You are able to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease the thermostat, by using the correct icon inside the app. You can even get automatic notifications on your phone if any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Get A Better View

If you control your Pensacola home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your interior and exterior if your surveillance is active. Access live video from all your security cameras directly from your cell phone, and save short clips or a single image, and playback more extensive videos as you like. If visitors stop at your house – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk capability to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the central menu, you can explore a range of modern settings. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by creating your own unique scene. In this area, you can program how your security elements operate together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a bedtime scene that switches off all the common-area smart lights, turns on the exterior entry light, turns down the thermostat, and engages your alarms. Next, you can customize a start-your-day scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you would like to get more technical, you could allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your home secure itself by activating locks, turning off the lighting, and engaging your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in following a long day’s work, your home will spring to action by automatically opening the garage and disengaging the alarms.
