How To Control Your Buffalo Home Security Using Your Phone

Control Your Devices From Anywhere

Just access ADT Control. You can activate your overall home security, check camera footage, alter light levels, increase or decrease the temperature, by touching the correct icon in your app. You can even get automatic notifications on your phone if any of your components are triggered.

Improve Your View

When you control your Buffalo home security system with your phone, you have a real-time video feed of your interior and exterior when cameras are turned on. Access live views from any connected camera right from your phone, and save short video snapshots or still images, and playback more extensive videos as you like.

Get the Most Out of Your System With Schedules And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you will find several high-tech settings. Use scheduling your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and anything else you like by designing your own unique scene.

secure itself by locking the doors, turning off the smart lights, and engaging your alarms when you leave the driveway. When you arrive after another day in the office, your home will spring to action by automatically raising the garage door and disengaging the alarms.
