About this app

Internet of Things, Meet…The Security of Things

Take Control of Your Smart ADT Security Virtually Anywhere

We live in an age when we expect great technology – think of the Internet of Things – to make our lives easier and better. The ADT Control app builds on that notion to create a smarter security and automation system. Let’s call it The Security of Things.

ADT Control offers a seamless transition from at-home or at-work, to mobile smart security and automation. It extends the functionality of your ADT Command smart home or business security system, and puts it in the palm of your hand – virtually anywhere you go around the world. It goes beyond protecting what matters most to you, and delivers really smart security for your home or business.

How the ADT Control app puts you in command of your smart security and automation:

• Arm or disarm your home or business security from virtually anywhere.
• Control your lights so your home or business always looks occupied.
• Lock or unlock your doors remotely to let in contractors, visitors or the dog walker.
• Receive alerts when your system status changes or a door is unlocked, such as when your kids arrive home or your manager gets to work. Then view live video to check in on them.
• Adjust your smart thermostat to make everyone comfortable and even potentially lower your energy expenses.

Create Scenes and Schedules to bring it all together!
Using the ADT Control app, you can create scenes and schedules that give you the ultimate one-touch control of your smart home or business security and automation:
• Set up automations for leaving or arriving to your home or business.
• Create a vacation Scene that turns on different lights at different times, turns the TV or radio on and off, and generally makes it look like you’re home when you’re away.
• Adjust your system for different times of day so your security, lighting, temperature and other smart features are at the perfect settings, at the right time.

Please update the app. It constantly doesn't work properly, and it's frustrating. This is a constant theme in the reviews. The app doesn't work properly, and I am only seeing I am sorry responses but no solution to fix the issues. The app chooses when it will open and when it will not open, when it will show me my cameras and when it won't! Update your APP!

App doesn't work or either the system doesn't work well. I set rules for arming the panel at a specific time and it either doesn't do it or does it late. Three or four days now and it has only worked once and it came on late. Adt needs to do a better job with managing this especially when you have people with video requirements. We have to flip between two different apps constantly and the adt app isn't efficient.

I only give it 3 stars because it works well. Only a third of the time. The Times it doesn't work well is when it just clocks and says it times out. If you're looking at one of the cameras and you leave that camera and go to another camera , you can't go back to the original camera without it freezing and saying it timed out without closing the entire app out and then reopening it.
