How To Control Your Utica Home Security From Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Security may include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation devices. To control everything you can make use of your central command touchscreen when you are on site. Or, you may control your Utica home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Utica home security system through your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your installer should walk you through the basic configuration. Once you’ve established your username and password credentials, you may enter it on various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your your alarms, press the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access any connected equipment from this convenient interface, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to command integrated equipment around your house with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when leaving for the day? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You are able to arm your system, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up your HVAC, by touching the right icon within the app. You will stay connected with instant alerts on your mobile device when any of your components detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Utica home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live view of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is active. Explore live footage from any connected camera straight from your phone, and save short video snapshots or a single image, and access lengthier recordings as desired. In the event guests stop at your house – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- just use the two-way talk functionality to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you will find a range of advanced features. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by designing a custom scene. Here, you may program how devices operate together, and when you want them to turn on or off. Make a nighttime scene that switches off your main living area smart bulbs, turns on the outside entrance light, turns down the thermostat, and activates your alarm system. Next, you can set a morning scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want even more control, you might turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your home “shut-down” by activating locks, turning off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you leave the driveway. When you arrive after another day in the office, your property will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your security system.
