How To Control Your Miami Home Security From Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond alarms and sensors. Security can now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation devices. To manage everything you can use your touchscreen hub when you are on site. Or, you may control your Miami home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a breeze.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Miami home security system with your cell phone is through a download of the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. Once you’ve created your unique credentials, you can log on using additional smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your system, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access every device from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to command devices around your house with a simple finger swipe. Did you fail to lock the door when leaving for the day? Just open ADT Control. You are able to set your alarm, view cameras, adjust the lights, increase or decrease your HVAC, by touching the right icon in your app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone when any of your connected security elements detect an issue.

Get A Better View

If you control your Miami home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a live video feed of your property when cameras are active. Access live views from all your security cameras right from your cell phone, and keep shorter segments or an image, and access more extensive videos as you like. If visitors arrive at your door – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the bi-directional audio capability to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the central menu, you can explore some high-tech settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and more by designing a custom scene. Here, you may specify how your components interact with each other, and when you want them to turn on or off. Set a bedtime scene that turns off all the downstairs smart lighting, flips on the exterior entry light, turns down the thermostat, and activates your alarm system. You can also generate a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when you need to rise and shine.

If you would like even more control, you might turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. Now, you can have your residence “shut-down” by locking the doors, turning off the smart lights, and turning on your security system when you depart for work. Upon your return following your long day on the job, your property will come alive by automatically opening the garage and turning off your security system.
