How To Control Your New Orleans Home Security With Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Your home defense might now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation devices. To command everything you can use your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. If you’re away, you can control your New Orleans home security with a phone.

Fortunately, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your New Orleans home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your mobile device. At installation, your rep will instruct you through the initial set-up. When you have created your username and password information, you can enter it on additional phones or tablets. To arm your system, press the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access every device from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to control devices within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Forgot to secure the front door when leaving for the day? Just go to ADT Control. You have the ability to arm your system, check camera footage, alter light levels, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the right icon in your app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your mobile device in the event any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your New Orleans home security system with your phone, you can get a live glimpse into your property wherever a camera is operating. Explore live video from all your security cameras right from your mobile device, and save short clips or a single image, and playback longer recordings as you like. In the event people arrive at your door – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the 2-way audio functionality to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

Through the primary menu, you can explore several advanced options. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like through the use of a customized scene. In this area, you may program how your security elements communicate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a nighttime scene that turns off all the downstairs smart bulbs, flips on the outside entrance light, turns down the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. Then customize a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when you need to get your household going.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you could turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your home “shut-down” by operating locks, shutting off the lights, and engaging your security alarm when you drive away. When you arrive following your long day on the job, your home will come alive by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your security system.
