Tips To Control Your New Brunswick Home Security Using Your Phone

These days, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Your property’s protection might now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation components. To command everything you are able to make use of your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you have the ability to control your New Brunswick home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your New Brunswick home security system using your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your mobile device. At installation, your rep should walk you through the proper settings. Once you’ve created your username and password credentials, you can enter it on other phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your your alarms, press the shield icon. You are able to access any connected equipment from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to control components throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is go to your ADT mobile app. You can activate your overall home security, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change the thermostat, by touching the right icon within the app. You will stay connected with instant alerts on your mobile device if any of your components detect an issue.

Improve Your View

If you control your New Brunswick home security system with your phone, you have an actual view of your interior and exterior wherever a camera is turned on. Explore live video from your surveillance system straight from your cell phone, and record short video snapshots or still images, and watch lengthier videos as desired. If guests arrive at your door – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio capability to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you can explore a range of advanced settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like through the use of a custom scene. In this area, you may specify how your components communicate together, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Make a bedtime scene that turns off the main living area smart lighting, turns on the porch light, reduces the comfort levels, and arms your alarm system. You can also generate a wake-up scene that does the opposite when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you want to get more technical, you can allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your home “shut-down” by operating locks, turning off the smart lights, and engaging your alarms when you leave the driveway. When you arrive following another day in the office, your home will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your security system.
