How To Control Your Long Beach Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Security may incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation equipment. To command all of these elements you are able to make use of your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you can control your Long Beach home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Long Beach home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your mobile device. At installation, your rep will instruct you through the basic configuration. When you’ve decided on your unique details, you may log on using various phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access all components from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to control components within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door when leaving for the day? Just go to the ADT Control App. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, view cameras, alter light levels, increase or decrease your HVAC, by touching the correct icon inside the app. You can even get automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your connected security elements detect an issue.

Improve Your View

If you control your Long Beach home security system with your phone, you have a live glimpse into your property wherever a camera is operating. Access live views from any connected camera directly from your mobile device, and record short video snapshots or a single image, and access lengthier recordings as you like. If visitors arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a friend -- simply utilize the two-way talk feature to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the primary menu, you will find some modern options. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by designing a custom scene. Here, you can program how devices interact with each other, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Set a nighttime scene that switches off the common-area smart lights, flips on the exterior entry light, turns down the comfort levels, and activates your overall security alarm. You can also set a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when you need to get your household going.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you could allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your home secure itself by locking the doors, shutting off the lighting, and arming your security system when you drive away. Upon your return after another day in the office, your property will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and turning off your alarm.
