Ways To Control Your Kansas City Home Security With Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Your property’s protection can now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To command everything you can make use of your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your Kansas City 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 Kansas City home security system using your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative can guide you through the basic configuration. Once you’ve created your username and password details, you can enter it on additional smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the shield icon. You are able to access all components from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to control components around your house 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 open your ADT mobile app. You can set your alarm, see live video feeds, adjust the lights, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your mobile device in the event any of your security devices sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Kansas City home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live glimpse into your interior and exterior if your surveillance is turned on. Peruse live views from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and save shorter segments or an image, and watch lengthier segments as you like. In the event visitors stop at your house – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the bi-directional audio capability to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the primary menu, you will enjoy access to some high-tech settings. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by creating your own unique scene. Here, you may specify how devices interact with one another, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Create a nighttime scene that switches off the main living area smart lighting, activates the porch light, reduces the comfort levels, and activates your alarms. Then generate a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when you need to rise and shine.

If you want to get more technical, you could allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your home “shut-down” by activating locks, turning off the smart lights, and engaging your security alarm when you drive away. Then when you pull in following another day in the office, your property will come to life by automatically opening the garage and turning off your security system.
