How To Control Your Myrtle Beach Home Security Using Your Smartphone

In today’s world, a home security system goes beyond alarms and sensors. Your property’s protection may include CO detectors, smart lighting, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To control everything you can make use of your touchscreen hub when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you may control your Myrtle Beach home security with a phone.

Thankfully, the ADT Control® home security app makes managing your system easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Myrtle Beach home security system with your cell phone is through a download of ADT Control for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the basic configuration. After you’ve created your username and password credentials, you are able to log on using additional devices. To arm your home’s security, tap the icon in the shape of a shield. You can also access any connected equipment from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to control components within your residence with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to secure the front door on the way out? Just go to ADT Control. You can arm your system, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, turn up the thermostat, by using the right icon in your app. Then receive immediate updates on your cell phone in the event any of your connected security elements sense trouble.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Myrtle Beach home security system with your phone, you can enjoy an actual glimpse into your property if your surveillance is turned on. Peruse live video from all your security cameras directly from your phone, and keep shorter segments or still images, and access longer recordings as desired. If people stop at your house – the postal worker, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- take advantage of the 2-way audio capability to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

Through the main menu, you can explore some high-tech settings. Set schedules for your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by designing your own unique scene. Here, you may designate how your components communicate together, and when you would like them to engage or turn off. Create a end-of-day scene that shuts down all the main living area smart bulbs, turns on the exterior entry light, reduces the temperature, and engages your alarms. You can also generate a morning scene that does the opposite when the time comes to rise and shine.

If you would like even more control, you can turn on geo-services from your security app or touchscreen hub. By doing so, you can have your property
prepare itself by activating locks, switching off the lights, and turning on your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Then when you pull in after your long day on the job, your property will come to life by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming the alarms.
