ADT is introducing the latest feature for its home automation solution ADT Pulse: remote door locks, putting a “master key” at consumers’ fingertips.
ADT Pulse users will now be able to lock or unlock any door in their home using their tablet, smartphone, or the computer on their desk. ADT spent more than a year testing the quality and speed of its remote door locks, ensuring the delivery of a fast, reliable product for its 6.4 million customers.
Remote locking is only the latest feature to be added to the ADT Pulse system. Already, ADT Pulse users can remotely arm and disarm their security 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 allows me to take shortcuts in my daily routine, making my life so much easier,” said ADT Pulse customer Kyle Luckie, of Leesburg, GA. “I can now unlock the door when a delivery person arrives with a package, and then lock the door again when the package is safe inside. Now I know my family and possessions are always secure.”
Once the locks have been installed by a skilled ADT technician, customers can use the ADT Pulse application for iPhone, iPad and Android to remotely lock and unlock with one touch of a button. For business travelers, this means no more keys under the doormat, and for working parents, peace of mind knowing kids can get into the house when they’re home from school.
“Enabling our customers to control access to their home—from wherever they are, with the touch of a button—that’s what remote door locks represent,” said Tony Wells, chief marketing officer at ADT. “They also show that we understand connectivity, mobility, and the 24/7 pace of today’s digital world.”
