Just go to ADT Control. You are able to set your alarm, view cameras, alter light levels, turn up the temperature, by using the correct icon in your app. You can even get immediate updates on your phone in the event any of your connected security elements are triggered.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

When you control your Bend home security system with your phone, you can get a live view of your property wherever a camera is operating. Peruse live video from all your security cameras straight from your phone, and save short clips or an image, and playback more extensive videos as you wish. Then when visitors stop at your house – the postal worker, a salesman, or a family member -- simply utilize the bi-directional audio capability to talk with them.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you might turn on geo-services from the main hub or the app. You can now have your property
