How To Control Your Huntsville Home Security Using Your Phone

These days, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense might now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation devices. To manage it all you are able to utilize your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you may control your Huntsville home security with a phone.

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

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Huntsville home security system using your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your mobile device. At installation, your ADT representative should walk you through the initial set-up. After you have established your username and password details, you may enter it on other phones or tablets. To arm your system, press the shield icon. You can also access any connected equipment from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to command devices within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to engage the front door lock when you left? All you have to do is access ADT Control. You can set your alarm, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, change your HVAC, by touching the correct icon in your app. Then receive automatic notifications on your phone when any of your components detect an issue.

Get A Better View

When you control your Huntsville home security system with your phone, you can get an actual view of your property wherever a camera is operating. Explore live footage from any connected camera right from your mobile device, and save short clips or still images, and watch more extensive segments as you like. If guests arrive at your door – the mail person, a salesman, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk capability to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you can explore some advanced options. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by designing a custom scene. Here, you may program how your components operate with each other, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Set a nighttime scene that shuts down all the downstairs smart lighting, flips on the porch light, turns down the thermostat, and activates your alarm system. Next, you can customize a morning scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you would like to get more technical, you might activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. By doing so, you can have your home “shut-down” by activating locks, switching off the lighting, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway. When you arrive after a long day’s work, your house will come alive by automatically opening the garage and turning off your security system.
