Upgrade Your Existing Monitored ADT Home Security System with Cameras and Home AutomationADT Pulse cameras and home automation are becoming very popular. We have current ADT customers calling daily to find out how they can upgrade to ADT Pulse. With the ADT Pulse App giving customers the ability to remotely control their security systems, door locks, thermostats, lighting and garage door, many customers want this new technology in their homes. So if you currently have ADT security monitoring service and do not have cameras or home automation, how do you order the upgrades and have them installed?

To add cameras and home automation devices some customers will need to upgrade their security system panel. If your security system is Pulse ready, you will just need to have the Pulse Gateway Hub or an iCloud Link added to enable you to connect the cameras and home automation equipment. The Hub uses your Internet to connect to the "cloud" so your home automation equipment can be controlled remotely from your mobile devices. 

The cost of an ADT upgrade depends upon what equipment you need and how long you have been a customer. You will also need to upgrade your monitoring service to Pulse Level III to have cameras and home automation added.
