ADT Pulse Adds Kwikset Deadbolt Lock Feature
ADT Pulse has added deadbolt door lock control from Kwikset to its self-contained entry-level home automation system.
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 says it spent more than a year testing the quality and speed of its remote door locks.
Remote locking is the latest feature to be added to ADT Pulse, which allows users to 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, says, “If I forgot 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.”
“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,” says 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.”
