Arm your system while on the go

Blue by ADT gives you several options for arming and disarming your system while you’re on the go or at home. You can arm and disarm your system using your keypad, keychain remote, Blue by ADT mobile app and web portal.

Here’s a basic breakdown of the three different arming modes and one disarming mode:

ARM-STAY
Use this mode for securing your house while you’re home. ARM-STAY will provide you with an Exit Delay and an Entry Delay. It’s designed to ignore motion sensors and other specific sensors not set for Stay mode. During the Exit Delay, the beep will get faster during the last 10 seconds of arming.

ARM-AWAY
Use ARM-AWAY when no one is at home. Your system will provide an Exit Delay and an Entry Delay. During the Exit Delay, the beep will increase during the last 10 seconds of arming.

INSTANT ARMING
Use this mode when you’re in for the night and don’t expect anyone to enter or exit your home. Your system will not provide an Exit Delay or Entry Delay. This mode will also ignore specific sensors not set for Stay mode. (For example, motion sensors are typically only used in Away mode.)

DISARM
Use this whenever you want to cancel any alarm you’ve caused.
NOTE: The Exit and Entry delays are designed to give you enough time to leave or enter your home without setting off a false alarm.

Tip: Make sure all windows and doors are closed before arming the system. If a sensor is open when you’re trying to arm the system, you may be prompted to bypass the sensor. You can either close the door or window and try to arm again, or bypass the sensor and it will not be monitored until the next time the system is armed.

Beat the heat

As temperatures change with the season, it’s important to remember to try to stay cool. Don’t forget to take a break from warmer temperatures and follow heat safety precautions to avoid heat-related illness on National Heat Awareness Day on May 27th (and every day).

When you’re in extreme heat and humidity this spring and summer, take time to drink water, rest your body, use sunscreen and find shade. You can use your system and smart devices to make sure that your home stays cool during warm temperatures. Use the Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) or Google Nest Hub Max to control your compatible smart thermostats with your voice. You can also use a compatible smart thermostat with your Blue by ADT security system to help regulate your home’s air temperature. You’ll be able to adjust your home’s temperature on the go from your smartphone.
