ADT Command Features

ADT Control mobile app

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.

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.

Secure 24/7 camera footage

Your ADT Command system has the power to store and playback your security camera footage using your mobile device or the touchscreen. For the best security, ADT only allows access to view your camera’s footage to your security system’s administrator or owner in your home – not even ADT professionals.
