Ways To Control Your Ithaca Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection may incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation devices. To control all of these elements you can use your touchscreen hub when you are on site. If you’re away, you may control your Ithaca home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Ithaca home security system through your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the initial set-up. Once you have decided on your log-in credentials, you are able to enter it on other phones or tablets. To arm your system, press the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to command integrated equipment around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Forgot to secure the front door when leaving for the day? Simply open the ADT Control App. You are able to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, alter light levels, change your HVAC, by touching the right icon within the app. Then receive instant alerts on your mobile device if any of your components detect an issue.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Ithaca home security system with your phone, you have an actual video feed of your property wherever a camera is turned on. Access live views from all your security cameras directly from your cell phone, and keep short clips or a single image, and playback lengthier recordings as you wish. Then when guests show up – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a family member -- take advantage of the 2-way audio feature to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the primary menu, you will find a range of modern settings. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more through the use of your own unique scene. Here, you can specify how devices interact with each other, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Make a bedtime scene that turns off all the common-area smart lights, flips on the porch light, turns down the temperature, and engages your alarms. Then generate a morning scene that reverts the settings when you need to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for to get more technical, you can turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your home “shut-down” by activating locks, turning off the smart lights, and engaging your alarms when you depart for work. Then when you pull in after a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your alarm.
