Tips To Control Your Mesa Home Security Using Your Phone

These days, a home security system is more than door sensors and security cameras. Security can now involve integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To manage everything you can make use of your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you have the ability to control your Mesa home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Mesa home security system through your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. Once the download is complete, your installer should walk you through the basic configuration. When you have created your log-in details, you may enter it on various devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, touch the shield icon. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Any Location

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to control devices throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Forgot to secure the front door when leaving for the day? Just go to ADT Control. You can arm your system, see live video feeds, alter light levels, increase or decrease the thermostat, by using the correct icon in your app. Then receive instant alerts on your mobile device when any of your security devices detect an issue.

Improve Your View

When you control your Mesa home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your property wherever a camera is active. Peruse live footage from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and record short video snapshots or an image, and watch longer segments as desired. In the event guests stop at your house – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the two-way talk functionality to talk with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

When you go to the central menu, you will enjoy access to several high-tech options. Set schedules for your lights, heat, sensors, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how your components communicate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a bedtime scene that turns off the downstairs smart lights, flips on the exterior entry light, reduces the thermostat, and engages your alarms. You can also set a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get out of bed.

If you would like to get more technical, you could allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your residence secure itself by activating locks, shutting off the lights, and turning on your alarms when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in following your long day on the job, your home will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your alarm.
