How To Control Your Wichita Home Security Using Your Phone

These days, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Security might include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation components. To control all of these elements you are able to make use of your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you can control your Wichita home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Wichita home security system through your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your installer will instruct you through the proper settings. Once you have created your unique details, you may use it with various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your home’s security, press the easy-to-identify shield. You are able to access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to manage components around your house with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to lock the door on the way out? All you have to do is open your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to arm your system, view cameras, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease the temperature, by using the correct icon in your app. Then receive instant alerts on your mobile device in the event any of your components are triggered.

Get A Better View

When you control your Wichita home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual video feed of your property if your surveillance is operating. Explore live views from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and record short video snapshots or a single image, and watch longer videos as you wish. If people arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a relative -- simply utilize the 2-way audio functionality to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the main menu, you will find some advanced features. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by designing your own unique scene.

You can also set a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for even more control, you might turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your home secure itself by locking the doors, switching off the lighting, 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 turning off your security system.
