Taking the First Steps With ADT Control

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your cell phone makes it easy to command components within your residence with the effortless touch of your finger.

Simply access your ADT mobile app. You have the ability to activate your overall home security, check camera footage, turn lights on or off, turn up your HVAC, by hitting the right icon in your app. You will stay connected with automatic notifications on your phone in the event any of your components are triggered.

Get A Better View
