Tips To Control Your Las Cruces Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

These days, a home security system has more features than door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense can include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a wide array of home automation components. To manage it all you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. If you’re away, you can control your Las Cruces home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system easy to do.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Las Cruces home security system through your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your rep can guide you through the initial set-up. Once you’ve decided on your username and password details, you may use it with other devices. If you want to activate your system, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to command devices around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Forgot to secure the front door on the way out? Just open the ADT Control App. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, adjust the lights, change the temperature, by touching the correct icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your phone in the event any of your components are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Las Cruces home security system with your phone, you have a live glimpse into your interior and exterior wherever a camera is turned on. Peruse live views from all your security cameras right from your phone, and save short video snapshots or a single image, and access lengthier videos as you wish. In the event guests stop at your house – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- take advantage of the two-way talk capability to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you will enjoy access to some advanced features. Use scheduling your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by designing a customized scene. By using this feature, you can designate how devices interact with one another, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a end-of-day scene that shuts down your main living area smart bulbs, activates the outside entrance light, turns down the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. You can also customize a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when you need to get your household going.

If you want even more control, you can turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your home prepare itself by activating locks, switching off the smart lights, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway. Upon your return after another day in the office, your home will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging your alarm.
