Home Security on your Smartphone Device

So far, on this blog, I’ve tackled ways yours smartphone can help you travel, but what is one of the first things you usually do before setting out on a trip? Aside from buying your ticket and making reservations, you typically safeguard the home so that nothing goes wrong. Otherwise, you might not have much of a home to return to.

So, just this once, I’m going to go over how your smartphone can actually be used to secure the house.

It’s really no secret that the Apple App store seems to have an app for just about anything. And, believe it or not, there is a security app that coordinates with ADT monitored home security systems called ADT Pulse (SM) Interactive Solutions. Using your iPad or iPhone, this app gives you control over your security system and any associated home automation. ADT Pulse customers can remotely arm or disarm the system, mess with the lights and even get real-time camera feed – and that’s just the beginning.

The link has all kinds of useful information about their security systems and it’s worth a read if you’re in the market.
