ADT enters Nest partnership
The ADT Corporation has announced a partnership with Nest Labs to make it easier for ADT customers to manage their environment. ADT Pulse customers can now control their Nest Learning Thermostat from ADT’s mobile app for Pulse.
The partnership with Nest is the latest example of ADT’s efforts to deliver advanced technology and original solutions to its customers, through product integration and partnerships with other companies. ADT continues to collaborate with other key players within the security and smart home markets, having recently developed an API (Application Program Interface) architecture to accelerate the integration of products with ADT’s Pulse offering.
ADT’s New Mobile Experience
ADT also unveiled its new Pulse mobile experience, which is available for free by downloading ADT’s updated mobile application through the Apple App Store or Google Play. Available for iPhone/iPads with iOS 7.0 and above and Android phones/tablets 4.0 and above, the interface includes the following new features, among others:
– Integration with Nest: Equips users with the ability to control their Nest Learning Thermostat directly from the new Pulse mobile app. Current ADT customers who already have a Nest Thermostat can also link their device to ADT Pulse by updating to the new mobile application.
– “Always On” Dashboard: Provides current activity within your home and business, as well as the ability to take control of what is happening next via automation tools.
– Customized Visual Experience: Because the Pulse platform serves both ADT residential and business customers, the mobile application provides a different visual experience based on the needs of each demographic.
– Voice Commands: The new app also includes the voice control features of ADT’s prior mobile application, PulseVoice.
