To manage everything you are able to make use of your central command touchscreen when you are on site. Or, you can control your San Bernadino home security with a phone.

Fortunately, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your San Bernadino home security system with your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. At installation, your ADT representative will instruct you through the basic configuration. After you’ve decided on your log-in credentials, you may use it with various smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your system, press the icon in the shape of a shield. You are able to access every device from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your mobile device makes it easy to control components within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Did you remember to lock the door when you left? Simply open your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, adjust the lights, change your HVAC, by touching the correct icon in your app. You can even get instant alerts on your mobile device in the event any of your components are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

When you control your San Bernadino home security system with your phone, you can get a live video feed of your property when cameras are active. Peruse live video from your surveillance system straight from your mobile device, and save shorter segments or a single image, and playback lengthier recordings as you like. Then when people stop at your house – the mail carrier, a salesman, or a relative -- just use the 2-way audio functionality to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the main menu, you will find some modern settings. Schedule your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of a custom scene. In this area, you may specify how your components operate together, and when you want them to turn on or off. Set a nighttime scene that turns off your common-area smart lights, flips on the porch light, reduces the comfort levels, and arms your overall security alarm. Next, you can set a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when the time comes to get your household going.

If you want to get more technical, you could turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. You can now have your property
prepare itself by locking the doors, switching off the lights, and engaging your security system when you drive away. Then when you pull in from a long day’s work, your home will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming the alarms.
