Ways To Control Your Brooklyn Home Security From Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection may now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation devices. To manage all of these elements you can make use of your central command touchscreen when you are home. When you’re not on location, you can control your Brooklyn home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To start controlling your Brooklyn home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your rep will instruct you through the initial set-up. After you have created your username and password credentials, you can enter it on other smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your your alarms, press the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to manage devices around your house with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is go to the ADT Control App. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, alter light levels, increase or decrease your HVAC, by touching the right icon within the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your cell phone when any of your security devices sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

When you control your Brooklyn home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your interior and exterior when cameras are turned on. Peruse live views from any connected camera right from your cell phone, and record short video snapshots or still images, and access lengthier segments as you like. In the event visitors show up – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- simply utilize the two-way talk capability to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the main menu, you will enjoy access to some modern features. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by designing a custom scene. By using this feature, you may specify how your security elements interact with each other, and when you want them to activate or shut down. Set a end-of-day scene that switches off all the downstairs smart bulbs, flips on the exterior entry light, reduces the thermostat, and activates your overall security alarm. You can also set a start-your-day scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you’re looking for to get more technical, you could allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. By doing so, you can have your home “shut-down” by operating locks, switching off the lights, and arming your security alarm when you depart for work. Upon your return after another day in the office, your house will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your security system.
