- Learn more about the Nest Learning Thermostat
- The Nest thermostat is integrated with ADT Pulse via the ADT Pulse App. It is an App to App integration which allows you to control the Nest thermostat through your ADT Pulse App.
- The Nest is a learning thermostat. It learns how you live daily and automatically “programs” itself based on how you use it.
- You will not be able to control the Nest Thermostat through the ADT Pulse Web Portal, setup trigger events or schedules.
- Although 90% of people don't want to program their thermostat, making a learning thermostat perfect, for the other 10% NEST can also be a programmable thermostat, the best one you've ever had!
The future of smart home technology is rapidly growing and ADT is leading the industry in providing a robust software platform. ADT Pulse Apps will be able to control many smart home devices and make it very convenient for home owners to have one App to control every product in their home. This makes starting your journey with ADT Pulse as a Level 3 client all the more beneficial for you. For the small difference in monthly charge, many will find the ability to have cameras, home automation and an ever expanding amount of compatible technology well worth it and even a bargain.
Not long ago, home automation and smart home technology was only available through specific home automation integrators that took high priced systems and integrated the controls throughout your home. An entry level system would cost a few thousand dollars. A 200 square foot home could easily run $10,000 to become a smart home. With ADT Pulse, using your home security as the home automation platform, you can easily pay 1/4th to 1/2 of what you pay going through an integrator. And the cool features just keep coming!
