Ways To Control Your Oceanside Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

These days, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Security can incorporate smart locks, flood sensors, and a range of home automation components. To manage it all you can use your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. Or, you have the ability to control your Oceanside home security with a phone.

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

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Oceanside home security system with your cell phone is through a download of the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. Once the download is complete, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. When you have created your username and password details, you are able to enter it on various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your home’s security, tap the shield icon. You also have the ability to access all components from this convenient interface, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone gives you the ability to command integrated equipment throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to lock the door on the way out? All you have to do is go to ADT Control. You can set your alarm, check camera footage, adjust the lights, increase or decrease the temperature, by using the correct icon inside the app. Then receive automatic notifications on your phone when any of your components are triggered.

Improve Your View

If you control your Oceanside home security system with your phone, you have a real-time glimpse into your property if your surveillance is turned on. Access live views from your surveillance system directly from your phone, and save shorter segments or an image, and access longer segments as you like. Then when visitors show up – the mail carrier, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the bi-directional audio feature to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Schedules And Geofencing

Through the central menu, you can explore a range of high-tech settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. In this area, you are able to designate how your security elements communicate with each other, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Set a end-of-day scene that shuts down the main living area smart bulbs, flips on the exterior entry light, lowers the temperature, and engages your alarm system. Then generate a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to get your household going.

If you want to get more technical, you can activate geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your property
secure itself by activating locks, shutting off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you depart for work. Upon your return from a long day’s work, your house will spring to action by automatically opening the garage and turning off your security system.
