ADT Pulse Keeps Families & Home Connected & Safe

Like many families right now, I'm making plans for my son to head back to school while I'm heading back to work. This means we'll both be out of the home for long periods of time. Then if I have to work late that means a sitter has to watch over my son till I come home.

Note: I was invited as media to a dinner paid for by ADT to learn about their home security services and devices. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

While, in general I worry about leaving my home empty and unprotected for long periods of time, I'm extremely worried about what happens when it's time for my son to come home from school. So I've started researching ways to keep in contact with both my son and whats happening at home while I'm away.

One product I think can be helpful for families is ADT Pulse.

ADT recently announced a new feature for ADT Pulse customers – Video Motion Detection. The new feature allows users to schedule actions when motion is detected by their indoor or outdoor wireless cameras, and receive instant email or text message alerts with video clips of these activities. ADT Pulse customers can save these video clips for up to 30 days on their ADT Pulse web portal.

ADT Pulse customers can use the new video motion feature to monitor activities around the house, including:
  • Family Members: Pulse customers who are working parents with hectic schedules can keep an eye on their kids, ensuring they come home from school or afternoon activities on time. Homeowners who look after family members with special needs can be notified when caregivers arrive, helping to provide greater peace of mind.
  • Package Deliveries: Customers can set their cameras to record when a delivery person approaches, alerting them that a long-awaited package has been delivered and placed safely at the door.
  • Dog Walking: Customers who can’t be home to walk Fido multiple times a day can program their cameras to record when the dog walker arrives, and then unlock the door and relock it when the walker leaves. They can even keep tabs on the portions Fido is fed.
  • Home Service Calls: Pulse customers can receive text message alerts when the landscaper arrives to beautify their yard, or when the housekeeper comes to clean the house, and can even be sent email messages when they leave.

ADT Pulse customers with compatible cameras receive the new motion detection capabilities free of charge and can activate the camera feature by visiting their Pulse web portal.

The motion detection feature adds to the wide range of ADT Pulse life safety and lifestyle benefits, including the ability to remotely arm and disarm their 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.
