How To Control Your Cleveland Home Security Using Your Smartphone

Nowadays, a home security system has more features than keypads and alarms. Security may now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation devices. To manage everything you are able to make use of your touchscreen hub when you are on site. Or, you have the ability to control your Cleveland home security with a phone.

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

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Cleveland home security system using your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your installer will instruct you through the basic configuration. After you have created your username and password details, you may log on using additional smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your system, press the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to command devices within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when you left? Just open the ADT Control App. You can activate your overall home security, view cameras, adjust the lights, change your HVAC, by touching the right icon within the app. Then receive immediate updates on your mobile device if any of your security devices are triggered.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Cleveland home security system with your phone, you have a live video feed of your property if your surveillance is active. Access live video from your surveillance system right from your cell phone, and save short clips or a single image, and watch lengthier recordings as you like. In the event people stop at your house – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- just use the bi-directional audio capability to give them instructions.

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

When you go to the primary menu, you will find some modern features. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and more by designing your own unique scene. Here, you can designate how your components communicate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a nighttime scene that turns off the main living area smart lights, turns on the exterior entry light, turns down the comfort levels, and activates your overall security alarm. You can also set a start-your-day scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want to get more technical, you might turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your residence prepare itself by operating locks, turning off the lights, and arming your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Upon your return after your long day on the job, your property will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your alarm.
