Say hello to ADT’s most recent home monitoring innovation. The company’s ADT Pulse® technology is joining forces with Amazon Echo products to provide customers with a more seamless level of home automation and security capabilities. With ADT Pulse®, homeowners already have the ability to control their home through devices such as a smartphone, tablet or learning thermostat. They can remotely adjust indoor climate, turn off lights and close garage doors with a click of a button.
Starting in January 2017, ADT Pulse® customers also have the ability to control certain home automation features through Amazon Echo and Echo Dot devices. This time, control is hands-free with the help of Amazon Alexa voice commands.
Get to know Amazon Alexa home security features
Both new and existing ADT Pulse® customers are eligible for the Amazon Alexa integration. This new technology understands basic home automation commands that involve turning on lights and closing doors. To complete more advanced commands – especially ones that deal with home protection – homeowners must establish a secure PIN. The following situations are only some of the ways ADT customers can communicate with Alexa.
“Alexa, ask ADT to turn off the front porch light.”
“Alexa, ask ADT to close the garage door.”
“Alexa, ask ADT to unlock the front door lock with PIN 8393.”
“Alexa, ask ADT to disarm my system with PIN 8393.”
With ADT Pulse® and Amazon Alexa features working together to keep families safe around the clock, ADT is making smart home security solutions smarter.
