New partnerships for ADT promise smarter security


Today ADT announced new partnerships, one with LG Electronics and another with Nest, that will deliver an “all-in-one” smart security product backed by ADT’s security services. By partnering with Nest, ADT will enhance Nest’s learning Thermostat with its Pulse ecosystem. On top of that LG has plans for smart security as well.

The electronics company plans to introduce a smart security product later in the year that combines ADT’s professional monitoring and video monitoring service with a security gateway solution. The plug-and-play device will allow users to monitor home conditions remotely and the ability to add ADT’s service to it. The integration with Nest will come along this summer and will add the ability to add ADT to the learning thermostat.

ADT is also working on enhancements to its mobile platform with more rapid development, integration and support of third parties, their services and devices. The new mobile application will be released this summer and allow voice authentication and control and will give users a piece of mind straight from their handheld devices.

So if you’re an ADT user or want a more secure smart setup, for your house, new partnerships between ADT, LG and Nest may give you the smart setup you’re looking for.
