Tips To Control Your Newburgh Home Security From Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond alarms and sensors. Your home defense can now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation devices. To manage everything you can utilize your central command touchscreen when you are on site. Or, you may control your Newburgh home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Newburgh home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your ADT representative will instruct you through the initial set-up. Once you’ve decided on your log-in credentials, you can log on using other phones or tablets. If you want to activate your home’s security, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You are able to access every device from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to control components within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Forgot to engage the front door lock on the way out? Simply open the ADT Control App. You are able to activate your overall home security, view cameras, alter light levels, turn up the thermostat, by hitting the correct icon within the app. Then receive automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your components sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Newburgh home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your property wherever a camera is active. Peruse live video from your surveillance system directly from your cell phone, and keep short clips or an image, and access longer segments as you wish. If guests show up – the postal worker, a salesman, or a family member -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio feature to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you can explore a range of high-tech options. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and more by creating a customized scene. By using this feature, you may program how your components interact with each other, and when you want them to activate or shut down. Set a nighttime scene that switches off your downstairs smart lighting, turns on the exterior entry light, lowers the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. Then customize a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to get your household going.

If you want even more control, you could allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your property
“shut-down” by operating locks, turning off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you drive away. When you arrive following a long day’s work, your home will come alive by automatically opening the garage and turning off the alarms.
