How To Control Your El Paso Home Security From Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Security can incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation devices. To control all of these elements you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are on site. Or, you have the ability to control your El Paso home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your El Paso home security system using your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your rep can guide you through the proper settings. After you have decided on your log-in credentials, you are able to enter it on other phones or tablets. To arm your your alarms, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to manage integrated equipment within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to secure the front door on the way out? Just access the ADT Control App. You are able to arm your system, view cameras, adjust the lights, change the temperature, by touching the right icon in your app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone if any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

When you control your El Paso home security system with your phone, you have a real-time glimpse into your interior and exterior when cameras are active. Peruse live video from any connected camera right from your phone, and record short clips or an image, and playback more extensive recordings as desired. If guests stop at your house – the mail person, a salesman, or a friend -- just use the two-way talk feature to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the central menu, you will enjoy access to a range of modern settings. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and more by designing a custom scene. In this area, you can designate how your security elements operate with each other, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Make a end-of-day scene that shuts down all the downstairs smart lighting, flips on the porch light, turns down the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. You can also generate a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to get your household going.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you can activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your home prepare itself by operating locks, shutting off the smart lights, and arming your security system when you depart for work. Then when you pull in after a long day’s work, your property will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disengaging the alarms.
