ADT Pulse is the Ideal System for Travelers
It’s always nice to get away for a while and travel but let’s face it, you want your home protected while you cannot be there and what better way than with control over your home that is easy to use and provides the ultimate in security? Whether you like to take trips out of the country or simply take a couple of days away from home to a location that you can drive to in a few hours – ADT Pulse is the ideal system for travelers.
What is ADT Pulse?
ADT Pulse is a service that changes how you think about home security. What it does is allow you to control your home remotely. This type of home automation gives you the freedom to be away from home yet control things as if you were there.
For instance, ADT Pulse controls a variety of components such as:
- Thermostat Control. This is useful for saving energy costs while you are away. As an example, you set it up so that the thermostat lowers or raises automatically once you arm the system, according to your needs. Set it to lower the heat in the winter and lower the air conditioning in the summer. If you are not home, this is an excellent way to save on energy while not giving up one ounce of comfort. It is also great for when you are away and there is an unexpected temperature change and you are able to set up alerts to send a notification when the thermostat has fallen below or above a specified temperature. With ADT Pulse, you can even get severe weather notifications.
- Light Control. Want to make sure your home looks lived in while you are away? The light control allows you to turn your lights on and off whenever you want, wherever you are. It doesn’t run on a timer so you won’t have to worry that criminals will know your schedule because you choose when you want the lights to change. There is the light switch wall mount dimmer and the lamp module available.
- Garage Door Opener and Deadbolt Locks. These are perfect for when you have someone who will be coming and going to your home while you are away. Whether it’s the cleaner or the pet sitter, you can automatically open the door for them at a specified time of your choice and do it remotely so you do not have to give up a key or entry code to someone. Both work well too for when you are just getting home and want the doors opened for your entry.
These are just a few of the examples of what is possible with this type of home automation from ADT.
