Tips To Control Your Springfield Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Security might incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation components. To command all of these elements you are able to use your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Springfield home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a breeze.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Springfield home security system through your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your ADT representative can guide you through the proper settings. Once you’ve established your unique details, you may use it with various phones or tablets. To arm your home’s security, tap the shield icon. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to control integrated equipment throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to lock the door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is open your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to set your alarm, view cameras, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease your HVAC, by hitting the right icon in your app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone when any of your security devices are triggered.

Improve Your View

When you control your Springfield home security system with your phone, you can get an actual video feed of your residence and surroundings when cameras are active. Access live video from any connected camera directly from your phone, and save short clips or a single image, and access lengthier recordings as you like. In the event people arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a family member -- simply utilize the 2-way audio capability to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the primary menu, you will enjoy access to some advanced features. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by creating a customized scene. Here, you may specify how your components operate together, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Make a end-of-day scene that switches off the downstairs smart lights, flips on the exterior entry light, turns down the temperature, and arms your alarms. Then set a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time 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 home secure itself by locking the doors, shutting off the lights, and engaging your security system when you drive away. Upon your return after a long day’s work, your property will come alive by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your security system.
