Ways To Control Your Worcester Home Security With Your Smartphone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Security can now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation devices. To manage all of these elements you can use your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. If you’re away, you may control your Worcester home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Worcester home security system with your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your mobile device. At installation, your rep should walk you through the basic configuration. Once you’ve established your unique information, you may log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your system, press the shield icon. You also have the ability to access all components from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone allows you to manage integrated equipment throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock on the way out? Just access your ADT mobile app. You can set your alarm, check camera footage, adjust the lights, increase or decrease your HVAC, by touching the right icon inside the app. You can even get instant alerts on your cell phone if any of your security devices are triggered.

Improve Your View

If you control your Worcester home security system with your phone, you have a live glimpse into your property if your surveillance is turned on. Peruse live footage from any connected camera right from your phone, and save shorter segments or an image, and access longer videos as desired. If visitors stop at your house – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the two-way talk capability to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you will enjoy access to some high-tech options. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by creating a customized scene. Here, you are able to specify how devices interact with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Make a bedtime scene that shuts down the downstairs smart bulbs, flips on the outside entrance light, turns down the comfort levels, and arms your alarm system. Then customize a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you could activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your property
secure itself by operating locks, switching off the lighting, and turning on your security system when you depart for work. When you arrive following another day in the office, your property will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your security system.
