Ways To Control Your Hartford Home Security With Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your home defense might include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation equipment. To manage all of these elements you can utilize your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Hartford home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Hartford home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. When you have established your unique credentials, you can enter it on other smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your system, tap the shield icon. You are able to access every device from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to manage integrated equipment throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to lock the door when you left? Simply open the ADT Control App. You have the ability to set your alarm, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up the temperature, by using the correct icon in your app. Then receive instant alerts on your cell phone when any of your security devices detect an issue.

Improve Your View

When you control your Hartford home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time glimpse into your property if your surveillance is operating. Explore live footage from any connected camera right from your mobile device, and record short video snapshots or still images, and access longer videos as you like. In the event people arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a friend -- simply utilize the 2-way audio feature to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

Through the central menu, you will enjoy access to several advanced features. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by creating your own unique scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how devices interact with one another, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a nighttime scene that turns off the main living area smart lights, activates the exterior entry light, turns down the comfort levels, and arms your overall security alarm. You can also customize a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you could activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your residence secure itself by operating locks, turning off the lights, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in from a long day’s work, your home will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your security system.
