Ways To Control Your Colorado Springs Home Security With Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection may incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To command everything you are able to use your touchscreen hub when you are on site. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your Colorado Springs 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

The first step to controlling your Colorado Springs home security system through your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. Once the download is complete, your installer should walk you through the initial set-up. When you’ve decided on your unique details, you may use it with various smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your system, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to manage devices throughout your home with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to lock the door on the way out? Just access your ADT mobile app. You can set your alarm, view cameras, alter light levels, turn up the temperature, by using the right icon in your app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your cell phone in the event any of your security devices sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Colorado Springs home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual view of your interior and exterior when cameras are operating. Explore live video from all your security cameras directly from your cell phone, and record shorter segments or an image, and watch more extensive videos as desired. If people show up – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- just use the 2-way audio capability to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

Through the primary menu, you will enjoy access to some modern options. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like through the use of your own unique scene. In this area, you may program how your security elements communicate with each other, and when you want them to turn on or off. Make a nighttime scene that shuts down all the common-area smart lights, activates the outside entrance light, reduces the comfort levels, and arms your alarm system. You can also customize a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when you need to rise and shine.

If you would like even more control, you might activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your home “shut-down” by locking the doors, switching off the lighting, and engaging your security alarm when you leave the driveway. When you arrive following another day in the office, your home will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disarming the alarms.
