How To Control Your Lynchburg Home Security With Your Cell Phone

These days, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense might incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation components. To manage all of these elements you are able to use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. Or, you may control your Lynchburg home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To start controlling your Lynchburg home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your installer will instruct you through the basic configuration. After you’ve established your unique credentials, you are able to enter it on various devices. To arm your home’s security, press the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access any connected equipment from this convenient interface, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your cell phone gives you the ability to manage integrated equipment within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to lock the door on the way out? Simply open ADT Control. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon in your app. You will stay connected with instant alerts on your phone if any of your security devices sense trouble.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Lynchburg home security system with your phone, you can get an actual glimpse into your property if your surveillance is turned on. Peruse live views from all your security cameras right from your phone, and record shorter segments or still images, and watch more extensive recordings as you like. If visitors arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a friend -- simply utilize the 2-way audio feature to give them instructions.

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

Through the main menu, you will enjoy access to a range of modern settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by designing a customized scene. By using this feature, you are able to specify how your components interact with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a bedtime scene that switches off all the main living area smart lighting, turns on the exterior entry light, lowers the temperature, and activates your overall security alarm. You can also customize a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you would like to get more technical, you might allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your property
prepare itself by operating locks, switching off the lighting, and turning on your security alarm when you drive away. When you arrive after your long day on the job, your home will come alive by automatically opening the garage and turning off your alarm.
