How To Control Your Palm Springs Home Security Using Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than keypads and alarms. Your home defense may now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation equipment. To control everything you are able to make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you may control your Palm Springs 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 start controlling your Palm Springs home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your ADT representative will instruct you through the basic configuration. After you’ve decided on your username and password credentials, you are able to use it with various phones or tablets. To arm your home’s security, press 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.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone gives you the ability to command integrated equipment throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door when you left? Just open the ADT Control App. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, view cameras, adjust the lights, turn up your HVAC, by using the right icon inside the app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone when any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Palm Springs home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time view of your property if your surveillance is turned on. Access live video from any connected camera straight from your cell phone, and record shorter segments or a single image, and watch longer videos as you like. Then when people stop at your house – the mail person, a salesman, or a family member -- take advantage of the 2-way audio capability to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you will enjoy access to a range of modern options. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by creating your own unique scene. By using this feature, you may program how your components communicate with each other, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Set a bedtime scene that shuts down all the downstairs smart bulbs, activates the exterior entry light, lowers the temperature, and activates your alarm system. You can also customize a wake-up scene that does the opposite when you need to get out of bed.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you can allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your home “shut-down” by activating locks, turning off the lights, and engaging your alarms when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in from a long day’s work, your home will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your alarm.
