How To Control Your Lawrence Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense might include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation devices. To control everything you are able to use your central command touchscreen when you are home. When you’re not on location, you can control your Lawrence home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Lawrence home security system using your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your rep should walk you through the initial set-up. Once you have decided on your log-in credentials, you are able to log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your system, press the shield icon. You are able to access all components from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to manage devices throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to secure the front door on the way out? Just access ADT Control. You are able to arm your system, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon within the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your security devices detect an issue.

Get A Better View

When you control your Lawrence home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your residence and surroundings when cameras are operating. Access live views from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and record shorter segments or an image, and access longer recordings as you like. Then when guests stop at your house – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the two-way talk feature to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you can explore a range of high-tech features. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of your own unique scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how your security elements operate with one another, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a bedtime scene that turns off the downstairs smart lights, turns on the exterior entry light, lowers the comfort levels, and activates your alarm system. Then set a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get your household going.

If you’re looking for even more control, you might turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your property
“shut-down” by operating locks, turning off the lighting, and arming your security alarm when you drive away. Upon your return following another day in the office, your house will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging the alarms.
