Ways To Control Your Bakersfield Home Security From Your Phone

Nowadays, a home security system has more features than keypads and alarms. Your property’s protection may include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation devices. To manage it all you are able to utilize your central command touchscreen when you are on site. Or, you have the ability to control your Bakersfield home security with a phone.

Luckily, ADT’s mobile security application makes interacting with your devices a simple process.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Bakersfield home security system through your cell phone is by downloading the ADT security app for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your rep should walk you through the proper settings. After you’ve created your username and password credentials, you may log on using additional phones or tablets. When wanting to engage your home’s security, press the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access every device from the app, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Any Location

A home security app on your smartphone gives you the ability to manage components around your house with an easy tap of your finger. Did you remember to engage the front door lock when you left? Simply go to your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, adjust the lights, increase or decrease the thermostat, by using the correct icon inside the app. Then receive instant alerts on your phone if any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Bakersfield home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your residence and surroundings wherever a camera is turned on. Peruse live footage from all your security cameras right from your cell phone, and save shorter segments or a single image, and watch more extensive videos as you like. Then when people stop at your house – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio feature to give them instructions.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the central menu, you will find some modern settings. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by creating a customized scene. In this area, you can designate how devices interact together, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Set a nighttime scene that turns off the common-area smart lights, turns on the exterior entry light, turns down the thermostat, and activates your alarm system. You can also generate a morning scene that does the opposite when the time comes to get out of bed.

If you want to get more technical, you can activate geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your residence “shut-down” by operating locks, shutting off the lights, and turning on your security alarm when you depart for work. When you arrive from your long day on the job, your house will come alive by automatically putting up the garage door and disengaging the alarms.
