Ways To Control Your College Station Home Security From Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Your property’s protection can include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation components. To manage it all you can utilize your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you can control your College Station home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your College Station home security system through your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. Once the download is complete, your ADT representative will instruct you through the basic configuration. Once you have established your log-in information, you can log on using various phones or tablets. To arm your home’s security, touch the icon in the shape of a shield.

Gain Remote Access From Any Location

All you have to do is open your ADT mobile app. You can activate your overall home security, view cameras, alter light levels, change the temperature, by touching the correct icon within the app. You can even get immediate updates on your cell phone if any of your components are triggered.

Get A Better View

If you control your College Station home security system with your phone, you can get an actual video feed of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is active. Access live footage from any connected camera directly from your phone, and keep shorter segments or a single image, and playback more extensive segments as you wish. In the event guests stop at your house – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the 2-way audio capability to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the central menu, you can explore some advanced features. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. By using this feature, you may program how devices operate together, and when you want them to turn on or off. Set a nighttime scene that shuts down your common-area smart lighting, turns on the porch light, reduces the comfort levels, and engages your alarms. Next, you can customize a morning scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you want even more control, you could turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your property
secure itself by operating locks, shutting off the smart lights, and turning on your alarms when you leave the driveway. When you arrive from another day in the office, your property will spring to action by automatically opening the garage and disarming your alarm.
