Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling easy to do.

After it’s installed, your ADT representative should walk you through the proper settings. After you’ve created your username and password details, you can log on using various smartphones and other mobile devices. If you want to activate your your alarms, touch the shield icon. You can also access every device from the app, including cameras, sensors, and home automation components.

Access Your System From Any Location

Did you remember to engage the front door lock when you left? Just go to your ADT mobile app. You are able to activate your overall home security, view cameras, alter light levels, turn up your HVAC, by touching the correct icon inside the app. You will stay connected with immediate updates on your cell phone when any of your components are triggered.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Scottsdale home security system with your phone, you can get a live glimpse into your interior and exterior if your surveillance is turned on. Explore live video from your surveillance system straight from your cell phone, and save short clips or a single image, and watch lengthier segments as you wish. If people stop at your house – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio capability to give them instructions.

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

By using the main menu, you can explore a range of modern features. Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and more by designing your own unique scene. By using this feature, you are able to program how devices operate with one another, and when you want them to turn on or off.

Then generate a morning scene that does the opposite when you need to rise and shine.

If you would like to get more technical, you can turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. By doing so, you can have your property
“shut-down” by activating locks, shutting off the lighting, and engaging your security system when you depart for work. Then when you pull in after a long day’s work, your home will come alive by automatically opening the garage and disengaging your alarm.
