Ways To Control Your Boise Home Security Using Your Cell Phone

Nowadays, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Security can now involve CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation devices. To manage it all you can make use of your convenient touchscreen interface when you are home. If you’re away, you may control your Boise home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes remote access and scheduling a simple process.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Boise home security system with your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your mobile device. After it’s installed, your rep should walk you through the initial set-up. When you have established your username and password credentials, you may log on using other smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, tap the shield icon. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Access Your System From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone makes it easy to control components throughout your home with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to lock the door when you left? Simply go to your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, change the thermostat, by touching the correct icon within the app. You can even get instant alerts on your cell phone if any of your components sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Boise home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time view of your interior and exterior if your surveillance is active. Peruse live views from your surveillance system right from your phone, and record short clips or an image, and access longer videos as you wish. If visitors show up – the postal worker, a salesman, or a relative -- take advantage of the 2-way audio functionality to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you can explore a range of advanced options. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by creating your own unique scene. In this area, you can program how your components communicate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a bedtime scene that shuts down your main living area smart lights, flips on the exterior entry light, turns down the comfort levels, and activates your alarm system. You can also set a morning scene that does the opposite when you need 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 residence “shut-down” by operating locks, turning off the lighting, and turning on your alarms when you depart for work. Upon your return after a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disarming your security system.
