ADT, Boca Raton, Fla., introduced the latest feature for its home automation solution ADT Pulse® —remote door locks, putting a “master key” at consumers’ fingertips. ADT Pulse users will now be able to lock or unlock any door in their home using their tablet, smartphone, or the computer on their desk. ADT spent more than a year testing the quality and speed of its remote door locks, ensuring the delivery of a fast, reliable product for its 6.4 million customers, the company reported in a press release.
Remote locking is the latest feature to be added to the ADT Pulse system. Already, ADT Pulse users can remotely arm and disarm their security 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.
ADT Pulse customer Sarah Dusto of Frisco, Texas, said, “If I forget to lock my door, I can lock it with the touch of a button through my phone no matter where I am. With four kids, I always have my hands full, so simply being able to unlock the front door without searching for keys makes my life a lot more convenient.”
ADT Pulse customer Kyle Luckie, of Leesburg, Ga., said, “ADT Pulse allows me to take shortcuts in my daily routine, making my life so much easier. I can now unlock the door when a delivery person arrives with a package, and then lock the door again when the package is safe inside. Now I know my family and possessions are always secure.”
Supported by Kwikset, ADT’s remote door locks are easy to have installed and even easier to use, according to the company. Once the locks have been installed, customers can use the ADT Pulse application for iPhone, iPad and Android to remotely lock and unlock with one touch of a button. For business travelers, this means no more keys under the doormat, and for working parents, peace of mind knowing kids can get into the house when they’re home from school.
“Enabling our customers to control access to their home — from wherever they are, with the touch of a button – that’s what remote door locks represent,” said Tony Wells, chief marketing officer at ADT. “They also show that we understand connectivity, mobility, and the 24/7 pace of today’s digital world.”
