Simply open ADT Control.

Get A Better View

By controlling your Long Island home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your property when cameras are turned on. Access live video from your surveillance system straight from your phone, and keep short clips or still images, and watch lengthier recordings as desired. If guests stop at your house – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- simply utilize the 2-way audio capability to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you will find a range of high-tech options. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by designing a customized scene. Here, you can specify how your security elements communicate together, and when you want them to turn on or off. Set a bedtime scene that turns off your common-area smart lights, activates the exterior entry light, turns down the temperature, and activates your alarm system. Then customize a start-your-day scene that does the opposite when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you would like to get more technical, you can activate geo-services from the main hub or the app. By doing so, you can have your residence prepare itself by locking the doors, shutting off the lighting, and turning on your security system when you leave the driveway. When you arrive following a long day’s work, your house will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disarming the alarms.
