How To Control Your Santa Fe Home Security Using Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense might now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation devices. To command all of these elements you can use your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your Santa Fe home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a simple process.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Santa Fe home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your installer should walk you through the proper settings. After you’ve decided on your username and password details, you can use it with various devices. To arm your your alarms, touch the shield icon. You are able to access all components 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 smartphone gives you the ability to control devices throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to engage the front door lock on the way out? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You can activate your overall home security, check camera footage, adjust the lights, increase or decrease the temperature, by touching the correct icon in your app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Get A Better View

When you control your Santa Fe home security system with your phone, you have a real-time view of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is turned on. Access live views from any connected camera directly from your phone, and save shorter segments or a single image, and watch more extensive segments as you like. If people show up – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk feature to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

When you go to the central menu, you will enjoy access to a range of advanced options. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of your own unique scene. In this area, you may program how devices operate together, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Make a nighttime scene that turns off your common-area smart lighting, activates the porch light, reduces the temperature, and arms your alarms. Then customize a morning scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want to get more technical, you might activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your property
prepare itself by activating locks, turning off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in following your long day on the job, your house will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming the alarms.
