Ways To Control Your Rockford Home Security From Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Security might incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation equipment. To command all of these elements you are able to make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. Or, you may control your Rockford home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Rockford home security system through your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. Once the download is complete, your installer can guide you through the proper settings. When you have established your username and password information, you can log on using other phones or tablets. If you want to activate your your alarms, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your cell phone gives you the ability to manage devices within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to secure the front door when you left? Just go to the ADT Control App. You can set your alarm, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up the thermostat, by touching the right icon within the app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone when any of your security devices are triggered.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Rockford home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual glimpse into your interior and exterior if your surveillance is turned on. Access live video from any connected camera right from your mobile device, and save short clips or still images, and playback longer segments as you like. Then when people show up – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the 2-way audio feature to talk with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

Through the primary menu, you can explore some advanced features. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of a custom scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how your components operate together, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Set a end-of-day scene that turns off all the common-area smart lighting, activates the outside entrance light, reduces the thermostat, and activates your alarm system. You can also generate a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you would like to get more technical, you might turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. By doing so, you can have your property
“shut-down” by locking the doors, shutting off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you drive away. When you arrive following another day in the office, your house will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your alarm.
