How To Control Your Flint Home Security From Your Cell Phone

In today’s world, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection might include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a wide array of home automation equipment. To control all of these elements you can utilize your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you can control your Flint home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes interacting with your devices easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your Flint home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your ADT representative should walk you through the initial set-up. When you’ve created your log-in details, you can use it with various smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your system, tap 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.

Access Your System From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to command components around your house with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to secure the front door when you left? Simply go to ADT Control. You have the ability to arm your system, view cameras, alter light levels, increase or decrease your HVAC, by touching the right icon within the app. Then receive instant alerts on your mobile device in the event any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Get A Better View

When you control your Flint home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time view of your property when cameras are operating. Access live footage from all your security cameras right from your phone, and save shorter segments or still images, and access longer recordings as you like. In the event people show up – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the two-way talk functionality to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you will find several advanced settings. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and more through the use of a custom scene. In this area, you are able to program how your components interact with one another, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Create a end-of-day scene that shuts down your main living area smart lights, turns on the exterior entry light, turns down the thermostat, and activates your overall security alarm. Then generate a wake-up scene that makes the opposite adjustments when you need to get out of bed.

If you want even more control, you might turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your residence prepare itself by locking the doors, turning off the lighting, and turning on your security alarm when you depart for work. Upon your return after your long day on the job, your house will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and disengaging your security system.
