  • Control mobile app

    The ADT Control app gives you the power to control your ADT Command system at all times – whether at work, home or vacation. You’ll be able to use the app to control your smart home and security equipment just as you would at home using the ADT Command touchscreen display. The ADT Control app is free to download onto your Android or Apple iOS mobile device.

  • Alexa integration

    Set up the Amazon Alexa Smart Home feature for hands-free control of your ADT Command system using the ADT Control mobile app. You’ll be able to use Alexa voice commands to disarm your ADT home security system and control your smart home gadgets without lifting a finger.

    Your ADT Command system has the power to store and playback your security camera footage using your mobile device or the touchscreen.

  • Instant mobile notifications

    With ADT Command, you’ll be able to set up instant alerts to stay up to speed on your ADT home security equipment. If a sensor is triggered, you’ll receive a mobile notification and ADT’s professional monitoring center will, too. ADT’s professionals will contact you and emergency responders if there’s any danger. You’ll even be able to set up custom alerts for your home including automatic alerts when door and window sensors are triggered.

  • Professional installation

    ADT home security comes with professional installation. Technicians are willing to install and set up your ADT Command system and set up the app on your mobile devices as needed. Your technician will even show you how to use ADT Command. And remember ADT’s tech support teams are standing by to answer any questions.

  • Smart home connectivity

    ADT Command also comes with a touchscreen display to control all of your security and smart home equipment from one device. You’ll be able to connect your smart home devices from brands including Kwikset, Z-Wave and LifeMaster. This system also connects to Amazon Alexa for hands-free home security control. Simply tell Alexa to turn on your lights or disarm your system for convenient control of your security equipment.
