How To Control Your Muncie Home Security From Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Security can include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a range of home automation devices. To manage all of these elements you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. If you’re away, you have the ability to control your Muncie home security with a phone.

Fortunately, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Muncie home security system using your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative can guide you through the initial set-up. Once you have established your log-in details, you are able to enter it on additional smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to command integrated equipment within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to lock the door when you left? All you have to do is open your ADT mobile app. You can set your alarm, check camera footage, adjust the lights, change your HVAC, by touching the right icon in your app. Then receive automatic notifications on your phone if any of your connected security elements detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Muncie home security system with your phone, you have a live video feed of your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is turned on. Peruse live views from any connected camera straight from your cell phone, and save short video snapshots or still images, and watch lengthier recordings as you wish. In the event people stop at your house – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the two-way talk feature to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the central menu, you will find some advanced settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like through the use of a custom scene. By using this feature, you may program how devices communicate with each other, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Set a bedtime scene that shuts down your common-area smart bulbs, activates the outside entrance light, turns down the thermostat, and arms your alarm system. Then generate a morning scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to get your household going.

If you want to get more technical, you could activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your property
prepare itself by activating locks, shutting off the lighting, and arming your alarms when you leave the driveway. Upon your return following another day in the office, your property will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging the alarms.
