ADT is an Innovator Constantly Changing the way Home Security Works for you

In addition to being a reliable security provider, ADT is changing home security. A prominent mover and shaker in the home security industry. ADT, American District Telegraph at the time, invented the first monitored home security system when the owner's wife woke up to an intruder in her bedroom in 1870. Here's a few things that you might not realize were pioneered by ADT:

As ADT continues to invest in research of new technologies, they are also establishing relationships that made ADT more readily available to you and makes your ADT system easier and more convenient to use. Here's a few examples:

ADT Pulse and Ford Sync - Ford drivers can take full advantage of the ADT Pulse app and its safety-ensuring features through nothing more than voice commands. By downloading the app to your smart phones, you can connect by simply pressing the SYNC button on their steering wheels and speaking

ADT and Samsung Smart TV's - This partnership allows you to control their security system, cameras, and home automation all from your couch using your TV. You can also control your audio on Airplay with the ADT Pulse app on the Samsung Smart TV.

ADT and Life 360 - The ADT Canopy app has evolved from the partnership with Life 360 which provides you to download to your smart phone and keep tabs on your loved ones. The Chaperone upgrade gives you the option to contact the ADT monitoring center and have a live rep on the line that can dispatch help if necessary or just stay on the line with you when you'd rather not be alone. (hurry while it's in the free trial phase)  

ADT and Ideal Life - The two will continue to support the ADT Health platform with real-time health management services. The ability for you or a loved one, as well as caregivers and trusted medical providers, to monitor and track health and wellness considerably differentiates ADT from other home automation and security providers.

ADT and IFTTT - Ifttt (If this, then that) is an app that allows you to have one action cause another action on a completely different platform in your home. For example, if my weather app calls for a heat wave, adjust my thermostat to turn on at 4pm. This could assure a cool home after work without running the A/C all day or on days that it is not needed. With 120 other services and apps to work with, possibilities are endless. 

ADT and Southern California Edison (SCE) - SCE customers can get energy management and reporting capabilities through ADT Pulse. ADT Pulse can connect to SCE customers’ Edison SmartConnect meters to show home energy consumption, historical energy usage information, daily energy bill estimates and energy savings alerts. These features enable you to easily monitor, understand and adjust your energy consumption and save money on your electric bill.

Look forward to more partnerships that expand the capabilities and convenience of your system. Not only is there no additional cost for most of these benefits, they also make your life easier and some will save you money.


ADT Home Security Systems Help You Save on Your Homeowner’s Insurance
