How To Control Your Reno Home Security Using Your Smartphone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Security might incorporate integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation components. To command it all you can use your central command touchscreen when you are home. Or, you may control your Reno home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes remote access and scheduling a simple process.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Reno home security system with your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your installer can guide you through the initial set-up. When you’ve created your username and password information, you can log on using other devices. To arm your system, press the shield icon. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to manage integrated equipment within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to secure the front door when you left? Just access ADT Control. You are able to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up the temperature, by using the correct icon in your app. You can even get instant alerts on your mobile device if any of your components detect an issue.

Get A Better View

If you control your Reno home security system with your phone, you can get an actual glimpse into your property if your surveillance is active. Explore live footage from your surveillance system straight from your phone, and record shorter segments or an image, and watch lengthier segments as you wish. Then when guests show up – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- just use the bi-directional audio feature to speak with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the main menu, you will enjoy access to some high-tech features. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want by designing a customized scene. In this area, you are able to program how your security elements operate together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a nighttime scene that turns off the downstairs smart bulbs, turns on the outside entrance light, lowers the thermostat, and engages your overall security alarm. You can also generate a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when it’s time to get your household going.

If you’re looking for even more control, you could allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your residence “shut-down” by locking the doors, shutting off the lighting, and arming your security alarm when you depart for work. When you arrive after another day in the office, your home will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your alarm.
