How To Control Your Albany Home Security Using Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your home defense may incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation components. To manage all of these elements you can utilize your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. If you’re away, you may control your Albany home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Albany home security system using your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your installer should walk you through the initial set-up. When you’ve established your log-in information, you can log on using various phones or tablets. To arm your home’s security, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access all components from this convenient interface, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your cell phone allows you to command devices within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to lock the door when leaving for the day? Just open your ADT mobile app. You are able to set your alarm, see live video feeds, adjust the lights, change the thermostat, by using the correct icon within the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your phone when any of your security devices are triggered.

Improve Your View

When you control your Albany home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live view of your property wherever a camera is operating. Peruse live views from all your security cameras directly from your cell phone, and keep short clips or still images, and access more extensive segments as desired. Then when visitors show up – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- just use the 2-way audio capability to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the central menu, you will enjoy access to some advanced options. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by designing a customized scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how devices interact with one another, and when you want them to turn on or off. Create a end-of-day scene that shuts down all the common-area smart bulbs, flips on the outside entrance light, turns down the thermostat, and activates your alarms. You can also generate a morning scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your property
secure itself by locking the doors, shutting off the smart lights, and arming your security alarm when you depart for work. Upon your return following another day in the office, your property will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
