How To Control Your Orange County Home Security From Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Your home defense may include smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To control it all you are able to make use of your central command touchscreen when you are home. If you’re away, you can control your Orange County home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To start controlling your Orange County home security system using your cell phone is by downloading ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your installer can guide you through the basic configuration. After you’ve established your unique details, you are able to log on using additional devices. When wanting to engage your system, touch the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access every device from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to control integrated equipment within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to engage the front door lock when you left? Just access the ADT Control App. You can activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up your HVAC, by using the right icon in your app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone in the event any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Improve Your View

When you control your Orange County home security system with your phone, you can get an actual glimpse into your interior and exterior wherever a camera is operating. Peruse live footage from your surveillance system straight from your mobile device, and save short clips or a single image, and watch longer videos as you like. If people show up – the postal worker, a salesman, or a friend -- take advantage of the two-way talk capability to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you can explore several modern features. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by creating a custom scene. Here, you may program how devices operate with each other, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Set a nighttime scene that turns off your main living area smart lights, turns on the porch light, lowers the temperature, and activates your alarm system. You can also set a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for even more control, you might turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your home secure itself by operating locks, shutting off the lights, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway. Upon your return following another day in the office, your property will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disengaging your security system.
