How To Control Your Madison Home Security With Your Phone

These days, a home security system has more features than keypads and alarms. Security might include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation equipment. To control everything you are able to make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. Or, you may control your Madison home security with a phone.

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

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Madison home security system through your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. Once the download is complete, your ADT representative should walk you through the proper settings. Once you’ve established your unique credentials, you are able to enter it on additional devices. To arm your your alarms, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to control integrated equipment 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 are able to set your alarm, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up the temperature, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your phone in the event any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Get A Better View

If you control your Madison home security system with your phone, you have a live glimpse into your residence and surroundings when cameras are active. Peruse live video from any connected camera right from your mobile device, and record short clips or an image, and watch longer recordings as you wish. If people arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the two-way talk capability to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the main menu, you can explore a range of modern options. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by creating a custom scene. By using this feature, you can designate how your security elements communicate together, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Make a end-of-day scene that shuts down all the common-area smart bulbs, flips on the porch light, lowers the temperature, and activates your alarm system. Then generate a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for even more control, you might turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your residence prepare itself by operating locks, shutting off the smart lights, and turning on your security alarm when you leave the driveway. When you arrive from another day in the office, your property will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disarming your security system.
