Ways To Control Your Olympia Home Security With Your Phone

These days, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense might incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation components. To manage all of these elements you can make use of your central command touchscreen when you are on site. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Olympia home security with a phone.

Fortunately, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Olympia home security system using your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. Once you have created your log-in credentials, you can use it with additional devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone gives you the ability to control integrated equipment around your house with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to lock the door on the way out? All you have to do is access ADT Control. You are able to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, alter light levels, increase or decrease your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon in your app. You can even get immediate updates on your cell phone when any of your components sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Olympia home security system with your phone, you can get an actual glimpse into your property if your surveillance is operating. Access live views from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and save short clips or still images, and access lengthier segments as desired. Then when people arrive at your door – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- simply utilize the 2-way audio functionality to speak with them.

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

By using the primary menu, you can explore some modern options. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. In this area, you may program how devices operate together, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Set a bedtime scene that turns off all the common-area smart lights, turns on the exterior entry light, turns down the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. Next, you can customize a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when you need to get your household going.

If you’re looking for to get more technical, you can allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. By doing so, you can have your home secure itself by activating locks, shutting off the lighting, and engaging your alarms when you leave the driveway.
