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.

For this being and ADT system, there sure is a disappointing lack of home automation features. If partnering with Google was to encourage the sale of their products, one would expect home automation to go along with it. There's no way to set up auto arming and disarming, which is a large reason for the lack of 5 stars. Expecting more, getting less.

Live video viewing hardly works. It's easier for me to get out of bed, to look outside, to check out a noise than to look at the live streaming on my phone because it just won't connect. The only thing I like is being able to set the alarm on and off from my phone when needed. Other than that the app is awful. My family uses Google nest and they, immediately, are able to see everything going on with their live streaming. Ridiculous we can't.

Big delay between when someone rings the bell and you get notification on the phone. If I don't use the phone I don't hear the bell if I'm away from the immediate area because the ring is too low. Also, can't erase activity count from my ADT icon on my screen. App is not very user friendly. Whoever wrote the instructions made a lot of assumptions that you know what they meant. Wish I could find some one better.
