Ways To Control Your Salinas Home Security From Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection might include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation equipment. To manage it all you are able to utilize your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you may control your Salinas home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Salinas home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your rep can guide you through the initial set-up. After you have decided on your log-in details, you can enter it on additional smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your system, press the shield icon. You also have the ability to access all components from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to manage components around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door on the way out? Simply open the ADT Control App. You are able to set your alarm, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease the temperature, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your mobile device when any of your security devices detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Salinas home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your property when cameras are turned on. Explore live video from your surveillance system right from your phone, and save short video snapshots or an image, and watch lengthier videos as you like. Then when people stop at your house – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- simply utilize the two-way talk feature to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you can explore several high-tech features. Schedule your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want by creating your own unique scene. By using this feature, you are able to specify how your components operate with one another, and when you want them to activate or shut down. Make a end-of-day scene that shuts down the downstairs smart lighting, activates the exterior entry light, lowers the thermostat, and activates your alarms. Next, you can set a morning scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for even more control, you could turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your residence “shut-down” by activating locks, switching off the lighting, and turning on your security alarm when you depart for work. Then when you pull in following your long day on the job, your property will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disarming the alarms.
