ADT Command and Control Smart Home Security System Panel

Last night I was watching the Golden State Warriors game and Klay Thompson was on fire. He and Curry are know as the Splash Brothers and in yesterday's game against the Knicks, Thompson drained 43 points. He had some incredible rainbow threes from the corner for some large splashes. Yesterday in Las Vegas, ADT Security unveiled ADT Command and Control Smart Home Security System panel and created a splash of their own. The ADT Command Panel and ADT Control App are now the new standard by which all smart security systems will be measured. Let's check out what people are saying.

By creating dynamic scenes and rules, your smart home devices work in harmony to keep your family safe. For example, in case of a fire, the system can be connected to the thermostat, lights and doors, making it easier and safer for everyone to get outside.
  • Enhanced Safety: Keep your home connected 24/7 with the panel’s battery backup with dual path Broadband and LTE cellular communications.

  • Technologically Advanced: The app’s geofencing technology generates helpful automations and alerts to trigger events, with reminders such as arming the security system when you leave the house. With voice control technology, you can easily control your system simply with your voice.
  • Control at your Fingertips, Anytime and Anywhere: Use the Control app to carry out preset automations when you leave or arrive home, allowing you to remotely arm or disarm your system. No matter where you are, you can rest easy knowing your doors are locked, your lights are on or off and your home is secured. You can even watch live video and images from your mobile phone, tablet or smartwatch, so you can stay connected to your home no matter where your travels take you.
