How To Control Your Burlington Home Security With Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection might incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a wide array of home automation equipment. To control it all you can make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your Burlington home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes interacting with your devices a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Burlington home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your installer should walk you through the proper settings. Once you have created your username and password details, you are able to use it with other smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, press the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access every device from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone gives you the ability to manage components throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to engage the front door lock when leaving for the day? Simply open ADT Control. You are able to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, alter light levels, change your HVAC, by using the correct icon inside the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your mobile device if any of your components sense trouble.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Burlington home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live video feed of your property wherever a camera is turned on. Explore live footage from all your security cameras directly from your phone, and record shorter segments or a single image, and access longer recordings as you wish. Then when people stop at your house – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the two-way talk feature to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you can explore some advanced settings. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by designing a custom scene. In this area, you can program how your security elements interact with one another, and when you want them to activate or shut down. Create a bedtime scene that shuts down all the downstairs smart bulbs, turns on the outside entrance light, reduces the comfort levels, and engages your alarms. You can also generate a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when you need to rise and shine.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you might activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your property
prepare itself by activating locks, switching off the smart lights, and turning on your security system when you drive away. Upon your return from another day in the office, your property will spring to action by automatically opening the garage and disengaging the alarms.
