Ways To Control Your Boston Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection may now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation equipment. To manage all of these elements you are able to use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Boston home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Boston home security system with your cell phone is by downloading ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your ADT representative can guide you through the basic configuration. After you’ve established your unique credentials, you can log on using other devices. To arm your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access any connected equipment from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to command devices around your house with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to lock the door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is access your ADT mobile app. You can arm your system, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your mobile device in the event any of your connected security elements detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Boston home security system with your phone, you have a real-time glimpse into your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is active. Explore live views from your surveillance system directly from your phone, and save short video snapshots or an image, and playback longer segments as desired. In the event guests show up – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a relative -- simply utilize the two-way talk capability to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you can explore a range of advanced options. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like through the use of your own unique scene. In this area, you are able to specify how your components communicate together, and when you want them to turn on or off. Create a end-of-day scene that turns off all the downstairs smart bulbs, flips on the outside entrance light, lowers the thermostat, and arms your alarms. You can also generate a wake-up scene that does the opposite when you need to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your property
secure itself by activating locks, turning off the lighting, and engaging your alarms when you leave the driveway. Upon your return from another day in the office, your house will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your security system.
