Ways To Control Your Shreveport Home Security Using Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system is more than keypads and alarms. Security may incorporate CO detectors, smart lighting, and a range of home automation components. To control all of these elements you can use your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. Or, you may control your Shreveport home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Shreveport home security system using your cell phone is by downloading ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your ADT representative will instruct you through the proper settings. When you’ve established your username and password information, you can log on using additional devices. When wanting to engage your home’s security, touch the easy-to-identify shield. You can also access any connected equipment from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to manage devices within your residence with an easy tap of your finger. Did you fail to lock the door when you left? Just go to ADT Control. You can arm your system, check camera footage, alter light levels, turn up the temperature, by touching the right icon inside the app. Then receive automatic notifications on your mobile device when any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Get A Better View

If you control your Shreveport home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time video feed of your interior and exterior when cameras are active. Access live footage from your surveillance system directly from your mobile device, and record short clips or still images, and access longer videos as you wish. In the event visitors arrive at your door – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a friend -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio functionality to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Scheduling And Geofencing

When you go to the primary menu, you will find a range of high-tech features. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and more by creating your own unique scene. In this area, you may program how your security elements operate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a bedtime scene that switches off your downstairs smart lights, flips on the exterior entry light, lowers the comfort levels, and activates your overall security alarm. Next, you can set a wake-up scene that does the opposite when it’s time to get your household going.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you could allow geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your property
prepare itself by activating locks, switching off the smart lights, and engaging your alarms when you drive away. Then when you pull in after your long day on the job, your property will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and turning off your alarm.
