Ways To Control Your San Francisco 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 devices. To manage it all you can utilize your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. If you’re away, you can control your San Francisco home security with a phone.

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

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your San Francisco home security system with your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the initial set-up. When you’ve created your username and password credentials, you can enter it on various devices. To arm your your alarms, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone gives you the ability to manage devices around your house with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to lock the door on the way out? Simply open your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, turn up the thermostat, by touching the right icon within the app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone when any of your security devices detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your San Francisco home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live view of your interior and exterior wherever a camera is active. Access live views from all your security cameras right from your phone, and record short video snapshots or a single image, and access longer segments as you wish. If guests arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk functionality to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

Through the main menu, you will find several high-tech options. Schedule your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like through the use of your own unique scene. By using this feature, you can program how your security elements interact with one another, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Make a nighttime scene that switches off all the downstairs smart bulbs, turns on the exterior entry light, lowers the temperature, and engages your overall security alarm. You can also set a start-your-day scene that makes the opposite adjustments when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you could allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your residence secure itself by activating locks, shutting off the lighting, and arming your security system when you drive away. Upon your return following another day in the office, your home will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
