How To Control Your Salt Lake City Home Security Using Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Your home defense might incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation equipment. To manage it all you are able to make use of your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. Or, you can control your Salt Lake City home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Salt Lake City home security system through your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the initial set-up. After you have created your log-in details, you may use it with other phones or tablets. If you want to activate your system, press the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to control integrated equipment around your house with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when you left? Just open the ADT Control App. You have the ability to arm your system, view cameras, alter light levels, change the thermostat, by touching the right icon within the app. You can even get automatic notifications on your mobile device if any of your components detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Salt Lake City home security system with your phone, you have a real-time view of your property wherever a camera is active. Explore live footage from your surveillance system right from your mobile device, and keep short video snapshots or still images, and watch more extensive recordings as you wish. Then when guests show up – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio feature to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

Through the main menu, you will enjoy access to a range of high-tech options. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by creating a customized scene. Here, you can designate how your security elements interact with each other, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Make a end-of-day scene that turns off the main living area smart bulbs, activates the exterior entry light, turns down the thermostat, and engages your alarms. Next, you can generate a wake-up scene that does the opposite when you need to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your property
prepare itself by activating locks, switching off the lights, and engaging your alarms when you drive away. When you arrive following your long day on the job, your house will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your alarm.
