ADT Corp : New ADT Pulse® Motion Detection Offers Greater Home Control and a New “View” on Security

'Smart Home' Technology Can Automatically Trigger Lights and Doors to Lock or Unlock

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 18, 2013-- Today, ADT is introducing new video motion sensor technology to provide ADT Pulse customers with an extra layer of security protection and the ultimate convenience in home automation. The new feature allows users to schedule actions when motion is detected by their indoor or outdoor wireless cameras, and receive instant email or text message alerts with video clips of these activities. ADT Pulse customers can save these video clips for up to 30 days on their ADT Pulse web portal.


"ADT's product engineers performed extensive quality testing at our Innovation Lab to perfect the new motion detection feature," said Tony Wells, chief marketing officer at ADT. "This superior technology ensures our customers have a reliable experience every time they use our system, and gives them greater power to control their homes remotely from any location, helping to more easily protect and connect to what matters most."

ADT Pulse customers can use the new video motion feature to monitor activities around the house, including:

  • Family Members: Pulse customers who are working parents with hectic schedules can keep an eye on their kids, ensuring they come home from school or afternoon activities on time. Homeowners who look after family members with special needs can be notified when caregivers arrive, helping to provide greater peace of mind.
  • Package Deliveries: Customers can set their cameras to record when a delivery person approaches, alerting them that a long-awaited package has been delivered and placed safely at the door.
  • Dog Walking: Customers who can't be home to walk Fido multiple times a day can program their cameras to record when the dog walker arrives, and then unlock the door and relock it when the walker leaves. They can even keep tabs on the portions Fido is fed.
  • Home Service Calls: Pulse customers can receive text message alerts when the landscaper arrives to beautify their yard, or when the housekeeper comes to clean the house, and can even be sent email messages when they leave.

ADT Pulse customers with compatible cameras receive the new motion detection capabilities free of charge and can activate the camera feature by visiting their Pulse web portal. The motion detection feature adds to the wide range of ADT Pulse life safety and lifestyle benefits, including the ability for consumers to remotely arm and disarm their systems; access real time video of their premises; manage their energy consumption by controlling thermostats, small appliances and lights from any web-enabled device; and receive notifications and alerts via phone, email or text.

ADT Pulse

How It Works

ADT Pulse relies on Z-Wave™ wireless technology to help your home's electronics talk to each other, and to you. This is accomplished through intelligent mesh networking which "understands" the present status of any enabled device, and gives you confirmation that your devices have received the automatic or manual control commands you want.

  1. Simply plug the device you want to control into a Z-Wave module, and "join" it to your ADT Pulse network.
  2. Your system will automatically unify your electronics into an integrated network that can communicate wirelessly with other Z-wave modules.
  3. Once connected, you can control your z-wave household remotely from a web-enabled computer or mobile device.
  4. You can add Z-Wave to almost any device, room or an entire floor, according to your needs and desires.
