ADT Releases New and Improved Indoor ADT Pulse Camera and an ADT Pulse Doorbell Camera

ADT has come out with their new Doorbell Camera and an exciting new indoor HD Camera. These are both amazing new products that will have a big impact on existing and new ADT Pulse customers.

The ADT Pulse Doorbell Camera

We heard at CES 2018 that ADT was coming out with a Doorbell Camera. Well it is now finally available and it looks cool and easy to install just like the other ADT Pulse Cameras. The most exciting part about this is that up until now ADT’s only solution for a doorbell camera was a partnership with Ring for the Ring Doorbells. I have never been happy with this partnership or integration because it was not a true integration. It is unclear if Ring will remain a partner, but since there are legal battles between the two companies it would make sense to go their separate ways. Now you can see the doorbell camera in your ADT Pulse app and it acts just like your other ADT Pulse Cameras. The only caveat is that you need to wire it to your existing doorbell and it cannot be used for battery only applications like the Ring can.

The New and Improved Indoor ADT Pulse Camera

The improvements on the new HD Indoor Camera are also very exciting. They have made the angle much wider (128.6°!) so now you can see more of your family room, kitchen, office, etc…

In addition, they have improved the low light conditions so that you can see a nice color image even in low light. (The RC8325 would switch to black and white if it was even slightly dim in the room).

The motion detection has gotten smarter with analytics so you do not get as many false motion alerts.

And there is even an option to add a micro SD card at some future update. (I don’t think this feature is enabled yet.)

The RC8326 will replace the existing RC8325 and become the primary indoor ADT Pulse Camera in the next coming months as inventories are exhausted.

    What battery does the ADT doorbell use and does it charge the battery if it is hardwired to the old wires?

      It has a lithium ion battery inside of it and it charges from the 2 wires that its connected to for your doorbell. There is a known issue with these batteries in cold environments though. Also, you could charge it with a usb cable before install but it usually comes with enough power to install and then is fine from there.
