How To Control Your Trenton Home Security From Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Security may include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation devices. To command it all you can utilize your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. If you’re away, you can control your Trenton home security with a phone.

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

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Trenton home security system with your cell phone is by downloading ADT Control for your mobile device. At installation, your ADT representative can guide you through the proper settings. Once you have established your username and password credentials, you may enter it on other smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your home’s security, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from this convenient interface, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your cell phone gives you the ability to command devices around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door on the way out? Just go to the ADT Control App. You can arm your system, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up the temperature, by hitting the correct icon in your app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone if any of your connected security elements detect an issue.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Trenton home security system with your phone, you can get an actual glimpse into your interior and exterior if your surveillance is operating. Peruse live footage from any connected camera right from your phone, and keep short video snapshots or still images, and access longer videos as desired. If visitors stop at your house – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- just use the two-way talk feature to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the main menu, you will find some high-tech settings. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like through the use of a custom scene. By using this feature, you are able to specify how your security elements operate with one another, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Make a nighttime scene that turns off all the main living area smart bulbs, flips on the porch light, turns down the temperature, and activates your alarms. Then generate a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to get your household going.

If you would like to get more technical, you can activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your residence “shut-down” by operating locks, turning off the lighting, and turning on your alarms when you leave the driveway. Upon your return from a long day’s work, your house will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your alarm.
