Tips To Control Your Lafayette Home Security From Your Phone

Your property’s protection may now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation components. To control all of these elements you are able to utilize your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you have the ability to control your Lafayette home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes managing your system easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

At installation, your rep can guide you through the initial set-up. Once you have established your log-in information, you may use it with additional smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, press the shield icon. You can also access every device from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

Simply access ADT Control. You have the ability to set your alarm, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, change your HVAC, by using the correct icon in your app. You can even get instant alerts on your phone when any of your components sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Lafayette home security system with your phone, you have an actual glimpse into your interior and exterior wherever a camera is active. Access live video from all your security cameras right from your mobile device, and keep short video snapshots or an image, and playback more extensive segments as you like. If people stop at your house – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk capability to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you can explore several advanced settings. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of your own unique scene. By using this feature, you can designate how your components interact together, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Set a bedtime scene that shuts down all the downstairs smart lighting, flips on the porch light, reduces the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. Next, you can generate a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when you need to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you could activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your residence prepare itself by operating locks, turning off the lights, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway. When you arrive after your long day on the job, your property will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your alarm.
