What Smart Home Devices are Compatible with ADT Command? Make your home a smart home – the smartest home is a home that connects automation and security. Like ADT’s previous system ADT Pulse, ADT Command uses Z-Wave technology to connect and add smart home devices which incorporate automation into your home. We made this blog post to help you know which devices work with ADT Command while understanding how it works.
How it works:
The ADT Command Panel has a built in z-wave wifi module installed within the panel which communicates to other z-wave devices. It also uses this module to communicate with the ADT Command Secondary Color Touchscreen Keypad.
Remote Support: Once your devices are connected, all devices can be controlled, monitored, and adjusted through your ADT Control App. In order to activate this, you will need an ADT Monitoring package which is about $53-$64 per month.
How Do I Add Smart Devices to My System?
For monitored devices and for automation devices, the installer has to put the system into learn mode in order to add additional equipment to the system. Once the system is in learn mode it can then sense and add any new devices near it when they are triggered.
What Devices are Compatible?
As long as the device uses z-wave technology, it can work with your system. These products consist of door locks, lighting, and thermostats)
