Are you wondering what the ADT Pulse Approved Devices are?

It can certainly be confusing when you are wanting to add devices to your ADT Pulse system to know what will be compatible and what will not be.  We have made this page to help.  ADT has two places where you can find a list of approved devices. One of them is on their website and the other on the ADT Pulse portal when you attempt to add a new device under system>manage devices.  Unfortunately, these two lists do not match and are not 100% accurate. We will try to make this page be the most accurate place on the web for approved devices for ADT Pulse.

Why Does ADT Limit The Approved Devices List to Certain Devices?

Taken from ADT’s website they say, “To get the best possible experience from the ADT Pulse system, it is important that you use only devices that have been tested and approved by ADT”.  ADT says this because the smart home market is exploding right now.

There are new products popping out every month and some of them are better than others. ADT does not have the resources to test every new device that hits the market so they can provide support and warranty for it.

For this reason, they try to keep this list as small as possible. They do not want more liability. If a customer calls in that is having an issue with one of the approved devices ADT will usually be able to help get it to work, but other devices they will not bother with.


Are There Devices That Will Work With ADT Pulse That Are Not on The Approved Devices List?

Yes. There are many devices that will work with ADT Pulse that either ADT has not updated one of their two lists yet or they do not want to officially support it. Two of these are the Honeywell Z-wave thermostat and the Yale Touchscreen Deadbolt.  (There is a list of these on the bottom of the page.)

Both work just fine with ADT Pulse but you will not find them on the drop down in the portal or on ADT’s website.

It is very encouraging that ADT has announced that they will integrate with IFTTT or IF sometime this year. This will open up their compatibility to tons of devices that ADT Pulse will not have to support.
