ADT Plans To Enhance Their Home Automation Security System, Pulse
Home automation has definitely taken off and to prove this point, many of the top security companies have already entered the industry. Comcast, AT&T, SimpliSafe, and Frontpoint have already expanded into the home automation market, but there is still one name missing from this list. The American security company, ADT has been in business for more than 140 years, starting out as a telegraph company, eventually evolving into one of the top security companies in the world. Apollo Global Management (NYSE:APO) purchased ADT in February 2016 for $6.9 million.
ADT currently provides home security monitoring services for global consumers in 35 countries. The company’s home automation security platform, Pulse includes everything from voice control to real-time live stream video mobile access. All of this is made possible through third-party Smart Home devices, wireless communication, and the ADT Pulse Voice app. ADT has already taken steps to integrate with several technology and networking companies, including Nest, Kwikwet, Linear, Jasco, and Netgear, but this is only the beginning.
ADT announced, just this month that they have partnered with Ring, with future plans to join forces with Roost and August. This is not only good news for ADT Pulse subscribers, but it could also open up doors of opportunities for Ring customers. If you have yet to invest in the intuitive Ring doorbell or August Smart Lock, you should consider doing it, today.
