ADT and Ideal Life Partner to Offer Remote Health Management via ADT Pulse
ADT announces at CES 2013 that it will incorporate health management products from Ideal Life into ADT Pulse home automation system.
LAS VEGAS—ADT and IDEAL LIFE today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership to offer new and existing ADT customers real time health management services. ADT will integrate the IDEAL LIFE health monitoring and information technology into its interactive home management system, ADT Pulse. ADT Pulse currently allows customers to remotely arm and disarm their security systems; access real time video of their premises; receive notifications and alerts; lock and unlock doors; and manage their energy consumption by controlling thermostats, small appliances and lights, all from their smartphones, tablets and computers.
The capability for customers, as well as their caregivers and trusted medical providers, to monitor and track health and wellness in real time will substantially differentiate ADT from other home automation and security providers.
“ADT continues to expand the Pulse ecosystem to provide more value to its customers, and remote health management services are a natural extension to the life safety and lifestyle capabilities of ADT Pulse,” said Don Boerema, ADT’s chief corporate development officer. “IDEAL LIFE’s solutions empower consumers by educating them on the status of their conditions as well as the advantages of prevention. We look forward to working with their team to offer these valuable new services to our customers.”
“IDEAL LIFE expands and connects the care continuum by giving medical professionals the tools to more effectively manage consumers’ health,” said Jason Goldberg, President of IDEAL LIFE. “Connected home devices are revolutionizing the way we deliver healthcare, and ADT is at the forefront of this trend with their integrated smart home technology. Through this strategic partnership, we can significantly expand access to critical healthcare information. This is a great opportunity for both companies to help save more lives.”
