Getting Started With ADT Control

To begin controlling your Modesto home security system using your cell phone is by getting ADT Control for your Apple or Android device. After it’s installed, your rep will instruct you through the proper settings. Once you’ve created your username and password credentials, you are able to use it with additional phones or tablets. If you want to activate your your alarms, press the shield icon. You also have the ability to access any connected equipment from your phone, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Gain Remote Access From Anywhere

Did you remember to secure the front door when leaving for the day? All you have to do is access your ADT mobile app. You are able to activate your overall home security, see live video feeds, alter light levels, turn up the thermostat, by hitting the right icon within the app. Then receive immediate updates on your mobile device in the event any of your components are triggered.

Improve Your View

By controlling your Modesto home security system with your phone, you have an actual glimpse into your property when cameras are turned on. Explore live views from all your security cameras straight from your phone, and save shorter segments or a single image, and watch longer segments as you like. Then when people arrive at your door – the postal worker, a delivery driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the two-way talk feature to speak with them.

Go Advanced With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

Set schedules for your smart thermostat, door and window sensors, lighting, and anything else you like by creating a custom scene.

If you want even more control, you can allow geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your home secure itself by operating locks, turning off the smart lights, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway.
