ADT introduces self-setup, featuring Google Nest products

Jan. 3, 2023
ADT customers will be able to access and control ADT devices and Nest products with an intuitive app.

ADT, the most trusted brand in smart home and small business security, introduced the ADT+ app at CES today as part of a new fully integrated product ecosystem. ADT customers will now be able to easily access and control their ADT devices, including a base, keypad, motion sensors, door and window sensors, smart bulbs, smart locks and smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, as well as compatible Google Nest Cams, Doorbell and Thermostats, through an intuitive app experience.

The new ADT+ app represents a historic shift in home security, allowing self-setup for DIY customers and seamlessly integrating multiple smart devices with professional monitoring and proactive mobile alert capabilities. 

Safety on the go

The ADT+ app delivers on ADT’s commitment to a product ecosystem that helps connect and protect consumers inside and outside the home. In addition to the new ADT+ app, which will be available beginning in February, there will be a new line of ADT home security products to be released later this year. 

“This is a pivotal moment for ADT. Through this new ecosystem, we’re providing greater peace of mind for our consumers wherever they are,” said Raya Sevilla, ADT Chief Technology Officer. “Consumer expectations and definitions of safety have evolved to include connection, proactive prevention, mobile, vehicle and energy. So we engineered the new ADT+ app with them in mind — leveraging extensive customer research to intimately understand their needs and expectations from a new home-automation system.” 

Driven by thousands of hours of research and insights from ADT’s residential and small business customers, ADT+ represents ADT’s next-generation smart home security system, providing modernized convenience that consumers desire by unifying security, life safety, smart home and analytics in one application. It’s future-proofed to adapt and evolve in tandem with the ever-changing security and smart home needs of today’s consumer.

A wealth of new benefits

In addition to being backed by ADT SMART Monitoring, key benefits of the new ADT+ app include: 

DIY flexibility at the forefront of the design. This is to ensure the process of installation is highly intuitive for the growing number of DIYers who are outfitting their homes.

The convenience and ease of one solution for the whole home. Consumers can access their ADT devices, as well as their Google Nest Cams, Doorbell and Thermostats, all in one place, with a home security snapshot. 

Real-time monitoring. Get intelligent alerts, including notifications whenever an important activity is detected on your Nest cameras. The notification will include a description of the object — such as a person, pet or vehicle — or activity detected.

Efficiency for the family. Create routines and automation with your ADT devices, like setting your lights to turn on and off and your doors to lock on a set schedule. 

February launch

The ADT+ app will launch first to ADT’s self-setup customers, who prefer the freedom of installing and customizing their own devices, in February. They will be able to activate the products and set up compatible Google Nest Cams within minutes. They can simply download the app and follow the on-screen instructions to activate their base and sensors, as well as add Google Nest devices.

It will be introduced for professional installation customers later in 2023.
