Ways To Control Your Appleton Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond alarms and sensors. Your home defense can incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation devices. To command it all you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you can control your Appleton home security with a phone.

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

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

At installation, your rep should walk you through the proper settings. Once you’ve created your username and password information, you may log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your home’s security, press the shield icon. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to command integrated equipment within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when you left? Simply go to the ADT Control App. You can activate your overall home security, view cameras, turn lights on or off, turn up the thermostat, by touching the correct icon inside the app. Then receive automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your components detect an issue.

Get A Better View

When you control your Appleton home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your interior and exterior wherever a camera is operating. Explore live footage from any connected camera directly from your cell phone, and record short video snapshots or an image, and playback lengthier recordings as you like. If guests arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a relative -- take advantage of the 2-way audio functionality to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the central menu, you can explore a range of high-tech features. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. Here, you may program how devices communicate together, and when you want them to engage or turn off.

Then customize a wake-up scene that does the opposite when you need to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for to go even more high-tech, you could allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your property
prepare itself by operating locks, switching off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you leave the driveway. Upon your return after your long day on the job, your home will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging the alarms.
