How To Control Your Indianapolis Home Security With Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Security can include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To manage everything you can make use of your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Indianapolis home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Indianapolis home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your mobile device. At installation, your installer can guide you through the proper settings. After you have created your unique information, you may use it with additional smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your your alarms, press the shield icon. You also have the ability to access all components from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone allows you to control devices within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when leaving for the day? Just access the ADT Control App. You are able to set your alarm, see live video feeds, adjust the lights, turn up the thermostat, by touching the correct icon within the app. Then receive automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your components are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Indianapolis home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live view of your interior and exterior wherever a camera is operating. Explore live video from all your security cameras straight from your phone, and keep shorter segments or still images, and watch lengthier videos as you like. If people arrive at your door – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- take advantage of the two-way talk capability to give them instructions.

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

By using the main menu, you will find a range of modern options. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and more through the use of your own unique scene. By using this feature, you can program how your components interact with one another, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Make a nighttime scene that turns off the downstairs smart lights, turns on the porch light, turns down the thermostat, and arms your alarms. Next, you can set a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get your household going.

If you would like to get more technical, you could activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your residence secure itself by activating locks, shutting off the lighting, and arming your security system when you drive away. Then when you pull in from your long day on the job, your property will spring to action by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your security system.
