The Z-Wave Alliance added muscle to its global security and access control offerings with the addition of ADT Security Services as its newest member. ADT joins a growing list of access control companies developing Z-Wave-based security and access control solutions, including Schlage, Black & Decker, and Wayne-Dalton.
The Z-Wave Alliance is an open consortium of global companies dedicated to building home control products based on Z-Wave wireless technology.
“We’re thrilled to have the world’s number one electronic security services provider, ADT, join the Z-Wave Alliance,” Z-Wave Alliance chairman, Raoul Wijgergangs, said. “They are a giant in the industry with a highly respected brand and an incredible customer base.”
Earlier this year, ADT developed a new interactive services solution that it says will help improve the way homes and businesses are protected and managed. The new solution will provide ADT home and business customers with a variety of service enhancements and is expected to launch early next year.
“With interactive services, we intend to better connect people with their homes and business owners with their facilities to help make life safer, more convenient and to enhance productivity,” ADT chief marketing officer, Don Boerema, said. “By joining the Z-Wave Alliance, we are expanding our partnerships with a number of leading companies to deliver very compelling solutions to customers nationwide.”
