Ways To Control Your Tampa Home Security With Your Phone

These days, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Security might incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation devices. To command it all you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are home. Or, you may control your Tampa home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Tampa home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your installer can guide you through the proper settings. Once you have established your unique credentials, you are able to log on using other phones or tablets. If you want to activate your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access any connected equipment from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to manage devices within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Forgot to secure the front door when you left? Simply go to the ADT Control App. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, view cameras, adjust the lights, change your HVAC, by using the correct icon inside the app. You can even get instant alerts on your phone when any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Improve Your View

If you control your Tampa home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual video feed of your interior and exterior if your surveillance is active. Access live footage from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and keep short clips or still images, and access more extensive segments as you like. In the event visitors arrive at your door – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the bi-directional audio feature to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you will enjoy access to some advanced features. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and more through the use of a customized scene. By using this feature, you are able to specify how your components interact with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a bedtime scene that shuts down all the main living area smart bulbs, activates the outside entrance light, turns down the thermostat, and arms your alarms. Next, you can customize a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when you need to get your household going.

If you want even more control, you could turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your residence “shut-down” by operating locks, switching off the lights, and turning on your security alarm when you drive away. When you arrive following your long day on the job, your home will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and turning off the alarms.
