Ways To Control Your Prescott Home Security From Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Security may include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation components. To manage all of these elements you are able to make use of your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you may control your Prescott home security with a phone.

Fortunately, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To start controlling your Prescott home security system using your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your ADT representative should walk you through the proper settings. After you’ve established your log-in credentials, you can use it with various devices. When wanting to engage your system, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access all components from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone gives you the ability to command devices throughout your home with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door when you left? All you have to do is go to the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, view cameras, turn lights on or off, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the right icon inside the app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone if any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Prescott home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time view of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is operating. Explore live footage from your surveillance system right from your phone, and keep shorter segments or a single image, and watch more extensive segments as you like. If people show up – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the two-way talk functionality to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

When you go to the central menu, you can explore several high-tech features. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more through the use of your own unique scene. In this area, you are able to designate how devices operate with one another, and when you want them to turn on or off. Create a nighttime scene that switches off the main living area smart bulbs, turns on the porch light, lowers the temperature, and arms your alarm system. Then customize a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for to get more technical, you might allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your property
“shut-down” by locking the doors, shutting off the lights, and turning on your security alarm when you depart for work. Upon your return after another day in the office, your property will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and turning off the alarms.
