ADT Pulse is much more than the ability to control your home security system, it is also the ability to control your home. It has home automation that includes climate (change thermostat temperatures) control, light control, video cameras, and even garage door control and deadbolt locks. Its affordable, customizable and very easy to use. ADT Pulse is not only giving you the ability to control a light, door lock, etc.. individually, its greatest asset is that everything can work together automatically.
For example, if there is a fire in your home your lights can automatically turn on, the thermostat can stop (so that it does not feed the fire more oxygen), and the door can unlock (for quick access for fire department or exit).
Another example is when you arm your system it can automatically change the thermostat to save you money on expensive energy costs, turn lights off to save you more money, and make sure the doors are locked. You can even receive severe weather alerts from your ADT Pulse system.
ADT Pulse is able to turn into home automation with a new technology called Z-Wave. You can add Z-wave devices like locks, thermostats, and lights and control them from the ADT Pulse Ihub. These z-wave devices use a mesh network that gets larger the more devices you install. The ADT Pulse Cameras work off of Wi-Fi technology also communicating back to the ADT Pulse iHub.

If a homeowner wanted ADT Pulse Premier they would start with $299 install and $59.99/mo. If they had 15 doors and windows they wanted to protect they would pay for the 13 additional doors and windows at $60 each($780). Three of them come included already with the $299. Then lets say they wanted to add an indoor camera ($150) and a Deadbolt ($199). Their total install cost would be $1428. Costs of additional equipment can be found here on our equipment price list or above on the ADT Pulse Parts Price List.
