ADT Command and Control App For Smart Home Security Alarm

When you are in the home technology business, you Dream about the possibilities of what a smart homes could do... Dream about a single platform that would make it incredibly easy for all homeowners to control their smart devices... Dream about one App that would manage it all... not ten different Apps... and Dream about someone else setting the whole thing up for you. 

It's super exciting to finally see a dream come true with the unveiling of ADT Command and Control. I just got off a conference call introducing the product and presenting it's feature and benefits. All I can say is WOW! This new panel and smart home App combination is absolutely amazing. You will be thrilled with this cutting edge technology and the life style changes you'll enjoy. 

ADT Command and Control will launch in February or March and should be available to be installed in most areas of the country with 60-90 days. ADT Certified Technicians are attending product installation training over the next several weeks across the country. I will be attending a training class in Sacramento tomorrow and can't wait to have the product in my hand. So far I have just seen pictures and videos.

Let's check out some of the highlights >>>

  • Once you setup the Geo Services events you desire, your ADT Command system will automatically manage your smart home as you arrive and leave your home... without you needing to do anything. 

Apple Watch 

  • What can I say... I love my Apple Watch and I am very happy I will now be able to have it work with my ADT security system and smart home devices. 


Built-in Wireless Control Technology Eliminates Need For a Separate Hub

All-Inclusive Solution

  • Does not require multiple devices to be installed. ADT Command is built with onboard Z-Wave/WiFi module and LTE radio so upgrades can be added to the panel.
  • Built-in Echo Dot hardware which is an Amazon Echo family internet-enabled speaker and microphone that connects to Amazon Alexa.
  • Has two-voice alarm verification built into the panel to provide the best ADT monitoring service possible.

LTE and Broadband Communications

  • The next generation in communications with new technology for speed and redundancy. LTE and a back-up battery allow the panel to continue to operate for up to 24 hours when local power is out and phone lines are down.


ADT Command Product Enhancements

New SiX Technology

  • Provides enhanced security for the communication between peripherals and the panel two-way encryption. Basically >>> stops the hackers.
  • Wireless device communication distance between the security sensors and the ADT Command Panel is 2.5 times greater than before. Allows for 1,000 feet line of site communication. This will especially be helpful for large homes.
  • This two-way encryption can help prevent signals being blocked and may also result in fewer panel transmissions, potentially meaning fewer battery changes.

 Photo Disarm

  • Built-in Camera on 7" Touchscreen Panel snaps and records a photo each time your system is disarmed.


  • You can manage temperature settings with automated schedules and create easy rules to have an added layer of automation based on system activity.
  • Automatically set to desired temperature when you arm your alarm system to ARMED AWAY or change temperature back when you arrive home and DISARM you ADT Command System.
  • Turn off HVAC fan if smoke or carbon monoxide are detected by your ADT life safety devices. This will limit the circulation of oxygen in the case of a fire, preventing the fire from being stoked by additional air and stop the spread of the poisonous gas fumes of carbon monoxide.
  • Enable a local lock-out so others can not adjust the thermostat settings.


  • Keychain remote now has LED indicators to let you know system signal from key fob has been received.

Life Safety Devices

  • One Go.. All Go. Annunciation of life safety alarms. If one smoke detectors detects smoke, then all the ADT Command smoke detectors installed in your home will sound their sirens.
