ADT Video Doorbell Camera
The ADT Video Doorbell Camera fully integrates with your ADT alarm system and alerts you through the ADT Control App when someone comes to your door. The camera connects to your system using 802.11n, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity and features built-in motion detection and night vision technology.
The weather resistant device operates in extreme temperatures, from -4 F to 122 F, and captures 720p high definition video with a 180° field of view. The video doorbell comes equipped with two-way audio technology, which enables you to speak with visitors or couriers, even when you are away from home.
Besides deterring would-be burglars, the ADT Video Doorbell can help prevent porch thieves and alert you when friends or relatives drop by unexpectedly.

ADT Control App
The free ADT Control App, available for Android and Apple devices, allows you to view live video from security cameras and receive instant alerts when someone opens a monitored door.
The app also integrates with smart home devices such as smart lights, thermostats, garage door systems and door locks. When integrated with smart home devices, you can set one-tap actions to open your garage door, disarm the alarm system and turn on exterior and interior lights before you pull into the driveway.
You can use the app from within your home or a remote location, making it easy to respond to unexpected emergencies. For example, if you leave home and suspect you left the oven on, you can disarm the alarm and unlock the front door to allow a neighbor into your home. Or, when an unexpected cold wave rolls in while you are on a weekend getaway, you can adjust your home’s heating system from afar to prevent frozen pipes.
Privacy by Design
Almost every day we see news stories about privacy concerns. The increasing number of security cameras has many people worried that society is becoming a surveillance state. Choosing to install cameras in your home may lead you to ponder loss of privacy, but ADT assures customers its monitoring service maintains the highest standards. “ADT is a proponent of Security and Privacy by Design principles, and our systems limit ADT’s ability to access our residential customer’s video footage,” said Nakatani.
How to Connect Multiple ADT Security Cameras and Devices
ADT’s security system allows you to connect multiple security cameras and smart home devices to help protect your home. Depending on the package, you’ll be able to connect your favorite devices such as the Ring video doorbell, Nest Thermostat and other ADT compatible smart home gadgets. Keep in mind that ADT cameras are not standalone security cameras. They must be connected to the ADT fully-monitored security system to be used.
ADT Security Camera Storage
While most security camera providers offer limited video storage at an additional cost, ADT offers unlimited security camera storage to record as many 30-second motion-triggered camera clips as you’d like with their packages. Here’s the catch – clips can be no longer than 30 seconds. But, you’ll be able to have as many as you need. ADT advises saving any important clips to your ADT portal as a backup storage option.
