Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Fort Myers home security system using your cell phone is by downloading the ADT Control app for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your ADT representative can guide you through the basic configuration. Once you have established your log-in details, you can use it with other smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your your alarms, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You also have the ability to access all components from this convenient interface, including smart lights and locks, surveillance systems, and sensors.

Access Your System From Anywhere

A home security app on your mobile device allows you to command components around your house with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to lock the door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is access your ADT mobile app. You can arm your system, see live video feeds, turn lights on or off, increase or decrease the thermostat, by touching the correct icon within the app. You can even get immediate updates on your cell phone when any of your components sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Fort Myers home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time video feed of your interior and exterior wherever a camera is active. Access live video from your surveillance system directly from your cell phone, and save short clips or a single image, and watch lengthier recordings as you wish. In the event visitors arrive at your door – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- just use the 2-way audio capability to speak with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the primary menu, you will find several advanced settings. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene. By using this feature, you may specify how your components communicate with each other, and when you would like them to activate or shut down. Make a end-of-day scene that switches off your downstairs smart bulbs, flips on the outside entrance light, lowers the comfort levels, and engages your overall security alarm. You can also set a wake-up scene that reverts the settings when the time comes to get your household going.

If you want to go even more high-tech, you could activate geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your property
prepare itself by operating locks, switching off the lighting, 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 to life by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your security system.
