Tips To Control Your Bellingham Home Security With Your Smartphone

Nowadays, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your property’s protection might include smart locks, flood sensors, and a wide array of home automation devices. To control it all you can use your touchscreen hub when you are on site. Or, you can control your Bellingham home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes managing your system a breeze.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Bellingham home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. Once the download is complete, your rep will instruct you through the basic configuration. After you have decided on your log-in information, you are able to log on using additional devices. If you want to activate your system, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access every device from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to control devices around your house with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you fail to lock the door when you left? Just go to ADT Control. You are able to set your alarm, check camera footage, adjust the lights, turn up the thermostat, by touching the correct icon within the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your phone if any of your security devices detect an issue.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Bellingham home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time view of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is active. Access live footage from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and save short clips or an image, and watch lengthier recordings as you like. Then when guests show up – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a friend -- simply utilize the 2-way audio functionality to talk with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you can explore several modern settings. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want by creating your own unique scene. In this area, you may designate how your security elements interact with one another, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Set a nighttime scene that shuts down your downstairs smart bulbs, turns on the outside entrance light, lowers the thermostat, and activates your overall security alarm. You can also generate a wake-up scene that does the opposite when the time comes to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you can allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your residence “shut-down” by operating locks, switching off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you depart for work. When you arrive after another day in the office, your house will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your security system.
