How To Control Your Jonesboro Home Security With Your Smartphone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection may include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation devices. To manage all of these elements you can use your central command touchscreen when you are on site. If you’re away, you may control your Jonesboro home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Jonesboro home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your installer can guide you through the initial set-up. Once you’ve established your unique credentials, you can use it with various phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your system, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access all components from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to manage components around your house with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to engage the front door lock on the way out? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You are able to arm your system, see live video feeds, alter light levels, change the temperature, by touching the right icon inside the app. Then receive automatic notifications on your cell phone when any of your security devices are triggered.

Get A Better View

When you control your Jonesboro home security system with your phone, you have a live view of your property when cameras are operating. Peruse live views from any connected camera directly from your phone, and save short video snapshots or an image, and playback longer videos as you wish. Then when guests arrive at your door – the mail person, a salesman, or a relative -- just use the 2-way audio feature to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you can explore some high-tech features. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and more by designing your own unique scene. By using this feature, you may program how your security elements interact together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Make a nighttime scene that shuts down your common-area smart lights, activates the outside entrance light, reduces the thermostat, and activates your alarm system. You can also generate a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you would like even more control, you could allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your residence secure itself by activating locks, switching off the lighting, and turning on your security alarm when you drive away. Upon your return after a long day’s work, your property will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your alarm.
