Tips To Control Your Lansing Home Security Using Your Cell 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 range of home automation components. To command all of these elements you are able to use your central command touchscreen when you are home. Or, you may control your Lansing home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Lansing home security system with your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your installer can guide you through the initial set-up. After you have created your unique information, you can log on using additional smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your home’s security, tap the shield icon. You are able to access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your cell phone gives you the ability to control devices throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door on the way out? Just open your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to set your alarm, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change the thermostat, by using the correct icon inside the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your cell phone in the event any of your components sense trouble.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Lansing home security system with your phone, you have a real-time view of your residence and surroundings when cameras are operating. Access live video from any connected camera directly from your cell phone, and save short clips or still images, and watch longer recordings as you like. If people stop at your house – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a relative -- just use the bi-directional audio feature to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the main menu, you will find several high-tech settings. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by creating a custom scene. By using this feature, you are able to designate how your components interact with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a bedtime scene that switches off your common-area smart bulbs, activates the porch light, reduces the comfort levels, and engages your alarm system. You can also generate a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your home prepare itself by locking the doors, switching off the smart lights, and engaging your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in from a long day’s work, your property will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your alarm.
