How To Control Your Eugene Home Security With Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection may include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation devices. To command everything you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are on site. If you’re away, you may control your Eugene home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes interacting with your devices easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Eugene home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your installer can guide you through the basic configuration. Once you have decided on your log-in credentials, you can enter it on other smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your system, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You are able to access any connected equipment from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to control components within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door when you left? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You can arm your system, view cameras, adjust the lights, increase or decrease the thermostat, by touching the correct icon in your app. You will stay connected with instant alerts on your cell phone if any of your security devices detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Eugene home security system with your phone, you have a live video feed of your interior and exterior when cameras are active. Access live footage from your surveillance system straight from your mobile device, and keep short video snapshots or an image, and access longer recordings as you like. If guests show up – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio functionality to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

Through the primary menu, you will enjoy access to a range of high-tech options. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. Here, you are able to program how devices operate together, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Create a bedtime scene that turns off the common-area smart lighting, flips on the exterior entry light, turns down the temperature, and activates your alarms. Then generate a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want to get more technical, you can turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your home prepare itself by locking the doors, turning off the lights, and turning on your alarms when you depart for work. Then when you pull in from your long day on the job, your home will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your security system.
