To control it all you can use your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you have the ability to control your St. George home security with a phone.

Fortunately, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To start controlling your St. George home security system with your cell phone is by downloading ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. Once the download is complete, your installer will instruct you through the proper settings. After you have established your username and password details, you are able to use it with other devices. When wanting to engage your your alarms, touch the shield icon. You are able to access every device from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your mobile device gives you the ability to control components throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Did you remember to engage the front door lock when leaving for the day? All you have to do is open ADT Control. You are able to arm your system, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, turn up the thermostat, by hitting the right icon inside the app. You can even get instant alerts on your phone when any of your components detect an issue.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your St. George home security system with your phone, you have an actual video feed of your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is operating. Explore live views from all your security cameras right from your phone, and save short clips or an image, and watch more extensive segments as you like. Then when visitors arrive at your door – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- just use the two-way talk functionality to give them instructions.

Go Advanced With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the central menu, you will find several advanced settings. Schedule your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like through the use of a customized scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how devices operate together, and when you want them to engage or turn off. Make a end-of-day scene that shuts down all the common-area smart lighting, flips on the exterior entry light, lowers the temperature, and engages your overall security alarm. Then customize a morning scene that makes the opposite adjustments when the time comes to get out of bed.

If you want to get more technical, you can turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your residence secure itself by locking the doors, switching off the smart lights, and engaging your security system when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in following your long day on the job, your property will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your security system.
