ADT Inc. announced the availability of the new ADT Self Setup smart home security system — the first fully integrated DIY offering from ADT and Google. ADT Self Setup integrates Google Nest smart home products with ADT security and life safety technology as well as ADT SMART Monitoring — all with the control of the new ADT+ app.

ADT Self Setup includes ADT’s customer service SMART Monitoring technology. SMART Monitoring for ADT Self Setup customers includes Video Verification. Customers can interact or view their ADT-monitored system through multiple touchpoints around the home by using the ADT+ app, Google Home app, ADT Keypad, Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) and Nest Hub Max and with their voice with a Google Assistant-enabled device.

“The new ADT Self Setup system provides the best of all worlds for DIY smart home customers. It unifies security, life safety, home automation and analytics through one easy-to-use application,” said Wayne Thorsen, ADT executive vice president and chief business officer. “Customers today are looking for smart home solutions they can customize. We’re thrilled to partner with Google to provide our customers with a new DIY smart home security solution that provides the integration and self-setup that customers want with the peace of mind of having ADT by their side.”

The ADT Self Setup system can include ADT Smart Home Hub, ADT Keypad, ADT Keychain Remote, ADT Door/Window Sensor, ADT Motion Sensor, ADT Flood & Temperature Sensor, ADT Smoke Detector, Nest Doorbell (battery), Nest Cam (outdoor or indoor, battery), Nest Cam (indoor, wired), Nest Thermostat, Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Wi-Fi, Nest Mini (2nd gen), Nest Hub (2nd gen) and Nest Hub Max.

ADT Self Setup system highlights:

  • ADT Smart Home Hub: provides connectivity between sensors, accessories, smart home devices and the ADT cloud interface via customers’ Wi-Fi and cellular network all in one place. If triggered, the system’s 85 dB panic alarm will set off to help protect a customer’s home and notify authorities of an emergency with professional monitoring.
  • Controlled with the new ADT+ app: The ADT+ app features the ability to receive intelligent alerts including notifications, whenever Nest Cams, or Nest Doorbell (battery) detect an important activity. Notifications will include a description of the object or activity detected, such as a person, pet or vehicle. 
  • Nest Doorbell (battery) & Nest Cams: Allows customers to see what’s happening at their door, in the home and yard, and communicate with family members or visitors from virtually anywhere. 
  • ADT SMART Monitoring: ADT is there for customers 24/7 with professional monitoring. In the event an alarm is triggered by a motion sensor or a door/window sensor, a signal will be sent to an ADT Monitoring Center and an Alarm Messenger SMS will be sent to the customer. 
  • ADT Alarm Verification: With text verification through ADT Alarm Messenger, ADT has reduced false alarms by over 50 percent. 
  • Nest Thermostat and Nest Learning Thermostat: Adjust the temperature from virtually anywhere through the ADT+ app or Google Home app.
  • ADT Flood and Temperature Sensor: Help protect against flood damage, frozen pipes, or an air conditioning malfunction by placing a sensor near appliances or other sensitive areas. The system will sound an alarm (and send a text alert) before a situation becomes an emergency.
  • ADT Keypad: Arm and disarm the ADT Self Setup system with the in-home controller. The battery-operated (or plug-in) keypad with illuminated keys includes a 2-button panic feature, smoke detector alerts that the keypad senses in the home and an LCD graphical display that quickly indicates the security system’s status.
  • ADT Security on Nest Hub (2nd gen) and Nest Hub Max smart displays: Customers can easily control their security system on Nest Hub (2nd gen) and Nest Hub Max, including arming and disarming in three modes by touch or voice, viewing alarm and sensor status.

ADT helps protect customer privacy with features like encrypted video and multi-factor account verification. ADT will notify customers of unusual or potentially dangerous activity, such as suspicious account sign-ins.
