How To Control Your Ventura Home Security With Your Phone

In today’s world, a home security system has more features than alarms and sensors. Your property’s protection may include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation components. To command it all you are able to use your convenient touchscreen interface when you are at your property. Or, you can control your Ventura home security with a phone.

Luckily, the responsive ADT cell phone app makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To start controlling your Ventura home security system using your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your mobile device. At installation, your installer can guide you through the initial set-up. Once you have established your unique details, you may log on using additional smartphones and other mobile devices. To arm your home’s security, touch the shield icon. You can also access any connected equipment from your phone, 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 manage components within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to secure the front door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is go to the ADT Control App. You can set your alarm, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the correct icon inside the app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone if any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Ventura home security system with your phone, you can get a live video feed of your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is operating. Explore live footage from all your security cameras right from your phone, and save short clips or still images, and playback lengthier recordings as you like. In the event people show up – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a relative -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio feature to talk with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the primary menu, you will enjoy access to several modern options. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want through the use of a custom scene. By using this feature, you are able to designate how your security elements interact together, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Set a end-of-day scene that shuts down all the downstairs smart bulbs, activates the outside entrance light, reduces the comfort levels, and arms your alarms. Next, you can generate a morning scene that does the opposite when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you would like to get more technical, you could turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your residence “shut-down” by locking the doors, turning off the smart lights, and arming your security alarm when you drive away. Upon your return after your long day on the job, your home will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
