Ways To Control Your Fort Collins Home Security Using Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection might now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation devices. To command everything you can make use of your central command touchscreen when you are on site. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your Fort Collins home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Fort Collins home security system using your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your rep should walk you through the basic configuration. When you have established your username and password credentials, you may log on using other devices. If you want to activate your home’s security, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You are able to access all components from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to manage devices throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to engage the front door lock when you left? Simply open the ADT Control App. You can activate your overall home security, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease the thermostat, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. You can even get automatic notifications on your mobile device in the event any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Fort Collins home security system with your phone, you can get a live video feed of your interior and exterior if your surveillance is operating. Explore live footage from all your security cameras straight from your phone, and save short video snapshots or still images, and access longer recordings as desired. Then when visitors show up – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk functionality to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you will enjoy access to several modern options. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by creating a customized scene. Here, you may program how devices communicate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a nighttime scene that turns off all the common-area smart lighting, turns on the porch light, reduces the thermostat, and arms your alarms. Next, you can customize a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you would like even more control, you can allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your home prepare itself by operating locks, switching off the smart lights, and turning on your security system when you drive away. When you arrive after a long day’s work, your property will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disengaging the alarms.
