How To Control Your Peoria Home Security From Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond alarms and sensors. Your home defense may now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation devices. To command it all you can make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. Or, you can control your Peoria home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Peoria home security system with your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your installer will instruct you through the proper settings. After you have decided on your unique credentials, you may use it with various devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to control devices around your house with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you fail to lock the door when leaving for the day? Simply go to your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change the temperature, by hitting the correct icon in your app. Then receive automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your security devices detect an issue.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Peoria home security system with your phone, you have an actual view of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is operating. Explore live footage from your surveillance system right from your cell phone, and record short clips or an image, and access lengthier recordings as you wish. If visitors arrive at your door – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a friend -- take advantage of the two-way talk capability to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you will enjoy access to several advanced features. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want by creating your own unique scene. Here, you are able to designate how devices communicate with one another, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Set a end-of-day scene that turns off the common-area smart lighting, activates the exterior entry light, turns down 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 even more control, you could turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your home prepare itself by operating locks, shutting off the lighting, and arming your security alarm when you drive away. When you arrive from your long day on the job, your home will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your security system.
