How To Control Your Springfield Home Security With Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Security might now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation devices. To manage all of these elements you are able to use your central command touchscreen when you are on site. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Springfield home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Springfield home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. Once the download is complete, your installer will instruct you through the basic configuration. Once you have decided on your username and password details, you can use it with various devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, tap 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 smartphone allows you to control components around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when you left? All you have to do is access ADT Control. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, adjust the lights, turn up the thermostat, by touching the correct icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your mobile device in the event any of your components detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Springfield home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time video feed of your property if your surveillance is active. Peruse live views from all your security cameras right from your mobile device, and keep short video snapshots or a single image, and access longer recordings as you wish. If people stop at your house – the mail person, a salesman, or a family member -- simply utilize the 2-way audio functionality to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the main menu, you will find several modern options. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by creating a custom scene. Here, you may designate how your components interact together, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Create a end-of-day scene that switches off all the common-area smart bulbs, turns on the exterior entry light, lowers the temperature, and activates your alarms. You can also set a morning scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you could turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your property
“shut-down” by locking the doors, shutting off the lights, and engaging your security system when you depart for work. Then when you pull in after a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your security system.
