How To Control Your Augusta Home Security With Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond alarms and sensors. Security may now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation devices. To control everything you are able to use your touchscreen hub when you are on site. Or, you may control your Augusta home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Augusta home security system using your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. Once the download is complete, your rep can guide you through the proper settings. When you’ve decided on your username and password details, you can enter it on various devices. When wanting to engage your system, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to manage integrated equipment throughout your home with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to lock the door on the way out? All you have to do is open ADT Control. You have the ability to set your alarm, view cameras, adjust the lights, turn up the thermostat, by hitting the right icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone if any of your security devices are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Augusta home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your property wherever a camera is active. Peruse live footage from your surveillance system directly from your cell phone, and keep short clips or still images, and watch more extensive segments as you wish. In the event people arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a family member -- take advantage of the two-way talk feature to talk with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the central menu, you will enjoy access to some modern options. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by creating a customized scene. By using this feature, you may designate how your components communicate with one another, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Create a end-of-day scene that turns off your common-area smart lighting, turns on the outside entrance light, reduces the temperature, and arms your alarms. You can also customize a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when the time comes to get your household going.

If you want to get more technical, you might allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your residence “shut-down” by locking the doors, switching off the smart lights, and arming your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in following a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your alarm.
