The Motley Fool - News and Investing

"The key to ADT's future is Pulse, its version of home automation. Using its existing sales and distribution channels, ADT is finding success in its Pulse product, even with sharp competition from some big names such as Verizon and Time Warner, which have arguably better distribution channels and a more recognizable imprint in customers' homes.
