How To Control Your Roanoke Home Security Using Your Smartphone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Security may incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation components. To command all of these elements you are able to utilize your touchscreen hub when you are home. If you’re away, you may control your Roanoke home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes managing your system easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Roanoke home security system through your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your rep will instruct you through the initial set-up. When you’ve created your unique details, you are able to enter it on additional devices. To arm your home’s security, press the shield icon. You are able to access every device from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to command integrated equipment around your house with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to secure the front door when leaving for the day? Just go to the ADT Control App. You are able to set your alarm, see live video feeds, alter light levels, change your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon within the app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone if any of your components are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Roanoke home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is operating. Access live footage from all your security cameras directly from your cell phone, and keep short clips or a single image, and playback longer segments as you like. If people stop at your house – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the 2-way audio feature to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the main menu, you will find a range of high-tech settings. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by creating a customized scene. In this area, you are able to specify how your components interact together, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Make a bedtime scene that shuts down the downstairs smart lights, flips on the porch light, lowers the temperature, and activates your alarms. Next, you can set a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when you need to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for even more control, you might allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your property
“shut-down” by operating locks, switching off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you drive away. Then when you pull in after your long day on the job, your property will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your security system.
