How To Control Your Springfield Home Security Using Your Phone

These days, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Security may include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation components. To command all of these elements you can use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. If you’re away, you may control your Springfield home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Springfield home security system through your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your mobile device. Once the download is complete, your rep can guide you through the basic configuration. Once you’ve decided on your log-in information, you may log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your home’s security, touch the shield icon. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to command integrated equipment within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is access your ADT mobile app. You are able to set your alarm, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change the thermostat, by touching the right icon inside the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your phone when any of your security devices detect an issue.

Improve Your View

When you control your Springfield home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time video feed of your property when cameras are turned on. Peruse live video from your surveillance system right from your phone, and keep short clips or a single image, and access longer videos as you wish. In the event visitors stop at your house – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a friend -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio capability to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the central menu, you will find a range of modern settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want by designing your own unique scene. Here, you can program how your components operate together, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Create a nighttime scene that turns off all the common-area smart lighting, turns on the porch light, lowers the thermostat, and activates your overall security alarm. Next, you can set a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to get your household going.

If you would like to get more technical, you could turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your property
secure itself by operating locks, switching off the lighting, and turning on your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Upon your return after another day in the office, your home will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your alarm.
