Tips To Control Your Naperville Home Security With Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Security can incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation devices. To control all of these elements you are able to utilize your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your Naperville home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Naperville home security system with your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your rep should walk you through the basic configuration. Once you have decided on your unique details, you are able to use it with additional smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your home’s security, tap the shield icon. You can also access all components from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone gives you the ability to manage integrated equipment within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to lock the door when you left? Simply access the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, turn up the thermostat, by using the right icon inside the app. You can even get automatic notifications on your phone when any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Naperville home security system with your phone, you can get a live view of your interior and exterior when cameras are operating. Access live views from any connected camera directly from your phone, and record short clips or an image, and watch more extensive recordings as desired. Then when visitors show up – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- just use the 2-way audio feature to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the central menu, you will find some advanced options. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by creating your own unique scene. Here, you can program how your components interact with one another, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Set a end-of-day scene that shuts down your main living area smart lights, turns on the porch light, turns down the thermostat, and arms your overall security alarm. You can also customize a morning scene that does the opposite when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you would like even more control, you might turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your residence secure itself by activating locks, switching off the lighting, and engaging your alarms when you drive away. When you arrive after another day in the office, your house will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your alarm.
