ADT Security Pro - Home Security Blog
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.Read More
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.Read More
It's 3am, you awake to the sound of breaking glass followed by silence.
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?"Read More

How I know personalizing your ADT Pulse Web Portal is easier than baking a cake...
Yesterday afternoon, I finished up a series of blogs that I've been really wanting to make available on the website. It was several "how-to" blogs with step by step instructions for fully automating your home. Of course they included screen shots, instructions and most have videos. In this series, I basically will hold your hand as we tippy-toe through customizing your home to meet your needs.Read More
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.Read More
Now that you are either decided on an ADT Pulse system or up and running with your new ADT Pulse system, you will want to start customizing the home automation aspect of your alarm. A common feature to start with is a simple schedule, something most people are already familiar with. Many features of your home that you now have on a schedule or a timer can be automated to work with your ADT Pulse alarm system. Any device in your system can be scheduled to perform events at specific times, on specific days or in specific modes. Devices like the lamp / appliance module also allow anything plugged into the appliance module to as well be be assigned to work on a schedule.Read More
