Tips To Control Your West Bloomfield Home Security With Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Security can now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation equipment. To manage it all you are able to utilize your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your West Bloomfield home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your West Bloomfield home security system using your cell phone is by downloading ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your installer can guide you through the proper settings. Once you’ve created your log-in information, you can enter it on various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your system, touch the shield icon. You are able to access every device from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to manage integrated equipment within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to engage the front door lock on the way out? Simply open your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to arm your system, view cameras, alter light levels, change your HVAC, by using the correct icon in your app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your mobile device when any of your components detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

When you control your West Bloomfield home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your residence and surroundings when cameras are active. Access live footage from any connected camera directly from your cell phone, and save shorter segments or an image, and access longer segments as you like. In the event people stop at your house – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a friend -- just use the two-way talk feature to give them instructions.

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

Through the central menu, you will find several modern settings. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like through the use of your own unique scene. Here, you may specify how your security elements operate with one another, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a end-of-day scene that switches off the common-area smart lights, turns on the outside entrance light, turns down the comfort levels, and activates your alarms. Next, you can generate a morning scene that reverts the settings when you need to rise and shine.

If you want even more control, you can allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your home prepare itself by operating locks, shutting off the lighting, and arming your alarms when you leave the driveway. When you arrive from a long day’s work, your property will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your security system.
