ADT Command and Control 7" All-In-One Touchscreen

ADT once again sets the standard for home security with their new ADT Command and Control panel. This system is absolutely amazing and when you see the specifications of the panel you realize just how special it is. This ADT Command security system was just showcased at CES 2019 and is setting the bar for the smart home security systems of the future. 

The central part of this system that makes it all happen is the ADT Command 7" All-In-One Touchscreen Panel called the 7" AIO Security Panel (ADT7AIO -2). ADT partnered with Honeywell, The Power of Connect Home team, to create this next generation panel. Let's look at some of the highlights Honeywell has given about this panel:

  • This dynamic 7" AIO panel with its bright, full-color capacitive touchscreen serves as the central hub for security and home automation and simplifies security systems operation. Whether arming or disarming the system, bypassing zones or controlling home automation such as lights, locks, thermostats and more, the intuitive, crystal-clear graphics touchscreen and menu-driven prompts simplify the user experience. It even has how to training videos right on the panel to give users easy steps on how to use the security system.

  • Consumers can expect a delightful experience including local voice control, activity annunciation, Bluetooth disarming and integration with Amazon Alexa. The 7" AIO panel is ideal for new installations and upgrades and provides next-generation interactive security as well as RMR-generating services like two-way voice over LTE.

ADT’s Next Generation High Volume Panel Platform is a family of panels within a single platform that delivers reliability and scale. It is well suited to meet the unique needs of ADT residential and commercial customers.
