How To Control Your Joplin Home Security With Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection might now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation components. To control it all you can use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you have the ability to control your Joplin home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Joplin home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. When you have established your username and password details, you are able to use it with additional smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You are able to access every device from your phone, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to manage devices within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Forgot to lock the door on the way out? Just go to your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to set your alarm, view cameras, adjust the lights, turn up the thermostat, by using the correct icon in your app. Then receive immediate updates on your mobile device when any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

When you control your Joplin home security system with your phone, you can get an actual view of your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is operating. Explore live video from your surveillance system straight from your mobile device, and keep shorter segments or a single image, and access longer videos as you wish. If guests arrive at your door – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- simply utilize the two-way talk feature to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the main menu, you can explore some advanced features. Use scheduling your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and more by designing a customized scene. In this area, you can program how devices communicate with each other, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Set a nighttime scene that turns off your common-area smart lights, turns on the exterior entry light, reduces the comfort levels, and engages your alarm system. Then set a morning scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to get out of bed.

If you’re looking for even more control, you can activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your residence secure itself by operating locks, turning off the lighting, and arming your security alarm when you drive away. Then when you pull in from your long day on the job, your house will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
