New Alexa Skill Let's You Show ADT Pulse Who's Top Dog

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Wed,Jan 04,2017 @ 03:47 PM

Like millions of families across America, we invited Alexa to moved in with us. We're flat out smitten with her. At the moment, she happily co-exists with our ADT Pulse system that we also adore. But soon... actually very soon, Alexa and ADT Pulse will work together to make our lives easier. 

If you haven't met Alexa, she is the personality and virtual assistant for Amazon. She is most commonly found on Amazon's devices Echo and Echo Dot. If that still doesn't ring a bell, you'll recognize her very popular, distant cousin Siri. Siri's the personality and virtual assistant for Apple.

ADT Pulse : What Is Home View and How Does It Work?

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Fri,May 06,2016 @ 02:30 PM

The exclusive Home View from ADT Pulse makes managing your home simpler than ever.

The hurdle with new technology is often the learning curve of each and every new device you install. Often, the AMAZING features that we saw on a commercial or an in-store live demo simply take too much time to figure out. 

ADT has taken that all into account and designed Home View to look like your home. What could be easier? You don't even need instructions to know what your house looks like.

Control your ADT Pulse System via your Ring Doorbell App...

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Tue,Mar 22,2016 @ 10:57 AM

Use ADT Pulse features from within your Ring app. Why would you want to you ask?  Because as the ring video put it:

"When you leave home each day,               

you leave your most valuable asset

           vulnerable to unwanted visitors"

Your Ring doorbell already alerts you when someone is near your front door and offers you live video to see what's going on. You then are able to respond to that person, giving the impression you are home, whether you are or not.

Top Alarm Companies in California (Best Home Security Alarm Company)

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Thu,Mar 03,2016 @ 11:58 AM

It's 3am, you awake to the sound of breaking glass followed by silence.

Even laying still, your heart is doing the Indy 500. Adrenaline stores up, you're ready for flight, you're ready for fight. The adrenaline actually sharpens your hearing.

Then there's nothing. For 10 minutes, there's nothing but a distant dog barking. You still can't get back to sleep, someone's waking up to a broken something, you hope it's not you.

You go secure the house, check the kids, peek outside and make sure everything is okay on your property. There's no rolling back over and drifting into sound sleep tonight. 

Neighborhood gossip alerts you that was John & Marie Poblanski's house.  Some creep broke the glass and grabbed some electronics and a marble elephant. Luckily no one was hurt... this time. It's time to get alarm system

You think, "Who do I call?"

How to Set up ADT Pulse Automations with Your ADT Web Portal

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Mon,Nov 16,2015 @ 11:34 PM

So you've decided that ADT Pulse is the way to go. Great decision by the way. You can now customize your sytem by setting up automations. To clarify, an automation is an event that happen because something else happened first. The first event or action triggers another event. For example, an every day thermostat "automation" would be for the heater to click on when the temperature drops below 68 degrees. A more life saving automation might be to have the fan to the home turn off if a smoke detector detects a fire. That way the fire is not being fed and growing faster because the air conditioner is flinging air into it's mouth. Here is how you set up automation with your ADT Pulse system.

A common feature to start with is a simple schedule, something most people are already familiar with.
