Tips To Control Your Spokane Home Security With Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than alarms and sensors. Your home defense may now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation components. To command it all you are able to utilize your touchscreen hub when you are on site. If you’re away, you can control your Spokane home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Spokane home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your mobile device. At installation, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. When you’ve created your log-in information, you may log on using various devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You are able to access any connected equipment from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to manage devices around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to secure the front door on the way out? All you have to do is open your ADT mobile app. You are able to arm your system, check camera footage, adjust the lights, increase or decrease your HVAC, by using the correct icon within the app. Then receive instant alerts on your mobile device if any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Spokane home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your interior and exterior if your surveillance is operating. Peruse live footage from your surveillance system right from your cell phone, and save short clips or a single image, and access longer videos as desired. Then when guests show up – the postal worker, a salesman, or a relative -- simply utilize the 2-way audio functionality to give them instructions.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you can explore some high-tech features. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of a custom scene. In this area, you are able to specify how your components interact together, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Make a bedtime scene that switches off your common-area smart lights, activates the outside entrance light, lowers the temperature, and engages your alarm system. Next, you can set a wake-up scene that does the opposite when the time comes to get out of bed.

If you would like to get more technical, you could activate geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your property
“shut-down” by activating locks, shutting off the smart lights, and arming your security alarm when you drive away. Upon your return following your long day on the job, your home will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging the alarms.
