To command it all you are able to make use of your touchscreen hub when you are home. Or, you have the ability to control your Davenport home security with a phone.

Luckily, the ADT Control® home security app makes interacting with your devices easy to do.

Getting Started With ADT Control

At installation, your ADT representative will instruct you through the proper settings.

Control Your Devices From Any Location

Just go to ADT Control. You have the ability to arm your system, view cameras, alter light levels, increase or decrease the temperature, by touching the right icon inside the app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your cell phone in the event any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Davenport home security system with your phone, you can get a live glimpse into your property if your surveillance is active. Explore live views from your surveillance system directly from your phone, and save shorter segments or a single image, and watch more extensive videos as you wish.

Increase Functionality With Schedules And Geofencing

If you’re looking for to get more technical, you might turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone.
