Tips To Control Your Harrisburg Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system has more features than keypads and alarms. Your home defense might include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation devices. To command all of these elements you can use your central command touchscreen when you are home. Or, you can control your Harrisburg home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes managing your system easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Harrisburg home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT Control app for your Apple or Android device. At installation, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. Once you have decided on your username and password information, you can log on using additional phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your your alarms, press the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access every device from your phone, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your cell phone allows you to manage devices within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger. Forgot to engage the front door lock on the way out? Just open the ADT Control App. You have the ability to arm your system, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, change the temperature, by using the right icon inside the app. Then receive instant alerts on your cell phone if any of your security devices sense trouble.

Get A Better View

If you control your Harrisburg home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time glimpse into your residence and surroundings if your surveillance is turned on. Explore live footage from any connected camera straight from your cell phone, and keep short video snapshots or still images, and watch longer segments as you like. Then when people arrive at your door – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a relative -- just use the two-way talk capability to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the central menu, you will enjoy access to some advanced 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 program how your security elements operate together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Create a end-of-day scene that turns off your common-area smart bulbs, activates the exterior entry light, lowers the comfort levels, and arms your alarm system. Next, you can customize a morning scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you’re looking for even more control, you can activate geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. Now, you can have your residence secure itself by locking the doors, shutting off the smart lights, and engaging your security system when you depart for work. When you arrive from your long day on the job, your home will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your security system.
