How To Control Your Napa Home Security Using Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Your home defense may include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation equipment. To manage it all you are able to use your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you may control your Napa home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

How To Get Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Napa home security system using your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your mobile device. At installation, your installer should walk you through the initial set-up. When you’ve established your log-in credentials, you can log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. 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 Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to manage components throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to secure the front door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is open the ADT Control App. You are able to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, alter light levels, increase or decrease the thermostat, by using the correct icon inside the app. You can even get automatic notifications on your cell phone in the event any of your components are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Napa home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your interior and exterior if your surveillance is operating. Explore live views from your surveillance system directly from your phone, and save short video snapshots or a single image, and access longer segments as desired. Then when visitors stop at your house – the mail person, a delivery driver, or a relative -- take advantage of the 2-way audio capability to talk with them.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

Through the central menu, you will find several high-tech features. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by creating a customized scene. By using this feature, you can designate how your components communicate with one another, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a bedtime scene that switches off the common-area smart lighting, flips on the porch light, lowers the comfort levels, and activates your alarms. Then customize a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when you need to get out of bed.

If you’re looking for even more control, you might allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your residence prepare itself by operating locks, turning off the lighting, and engaging your alarms when you drive away. When you arrive after your long day on the job, your home will come alive by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your security system.
