Automation – Your World Connected
ADT Home Automation is a system that allows you to monitor, secure and control your home and from a remote location.
What Is ADT Home Automation
A security system designed to keep your home safe from intruders. It can also be used as a home automation system to control the lights, temperature and other devices in your house with one simple device.
With the help of this automated alarm system, a person can control all their devices from one centralized hub. The hub will allow them to monitor their home remotely and receive alerts for potential issues.
How Does Home Automation Work
Thanks to wireless technology, home automation systems have become more common in today’s society to make everyday tasks easier. For example, lights can be turned on and off with a button on your phone or tablet. This is especially helpful for people who have trouble getting around their house or yard at night due to disability or illness. Home automation systems also save energy by allowing you to program the temperature in your home to turn up when you leave for work and turn down when you return so that it will be at the perfect temperature when you arrive home from work.
Key Components of a Home Automation System
A home automation system is made up of various components that work together to provide you with peace of mind.
The sensors detect any changes in the environment and notify you through a mobile app in your cell phone or a command panel, your command center.
A typical smart home setup would include a command center that manages all the devices in the house. This is usually a small box with a screen on it that plugs into your modem or router. The hub will then communicate with all the other devices in your house – such as lights, thermostats, and door locks – and give them commands to turn them on or off.
Arm, disarm or check your home automation system status from virtually anywhere. Connect and control your security, lighting, locks, thermostats, cameras and more remotely with the highly intelligent ADT Command app.
ADT smart home products can arm and disarm your security system, set your thermostat, and turn your home lights on and off from your smartphone.
Everyone needs a little help managing life at home. Now ADT Command can help! To ensure that your home is at the perfect temperature when you come and go, ADT Command allows you to turn your thermostat up and down remotely. On top of that, you can take control of your electricity by remotely automating, scheduling, dimming or turning lights on and off-indoors and outdoors!
ADT Command Center
Besides the ADT Control app, you can manipulate your systems through the ADT Command Panel, your smart home’s ADT command center. It allows you to control alarms and manage all your devices remotely, bypass alarms, and quick-access panic alarms. The ADT Command Center is a touchscreen panel with intuitive controls and supports several smart devices, so it’s easy to build your smart system around it. This can be installed anywhere in your house.
