01 Apr Ring Doorbell no longer Integrates with ADT Pulse
THE RING DOORBELL NO LONGER WORKS WITH PULSE OR ANY ADT PRODUCTS
UPDATE – June 2020
ADT and Ring have terminated their partnership and Ring does NOT work with ADT Pulse anymore. ADT has its own video doorbell now that does integrate much better than the ring one ever did. If you have a Ring doorbell you will have to use a separate app and pay ring directly for their service. If you want one single app it is best to stay away from ring and just get the Adt Pulse doorbell.
What is ADT Pulse?
ADT Pulse gives you the ability to be in control of your home or business from anywhere. It also adds automation and cameras to the security system. This allows customers to control lights, thermostats, deadbolts, garage doors, and more from their smart phone from anywhere. It also allows scheduling, alerts, and automations, using the security system, cameras, and automation components.
What is the Ring Doorbell?
Ring created a doorbell that can be wired or wireless that connects to your WiFi and allows you to see and talk to who is at your door from anywhere. It sends live video of your front door directly to your mobile device.
Now you can know who’s there before you open the door! If someone comes to your door when you’re not home, you can still answer as if you are there. Perhaps the guy carrying a box and a clipboard isn’t truly a delivery person (that’s only one of the disguises home intruders use). Perhaps a friend is coming over to drop off something. With the Ring Doorbell, you are always home.
Perhaps one spouse does the overnight shift at work. The other spouse can sleep soundly, knowing that sensors on the property will alert them if someone comes onto the property. If the spouse gets off work early and comes home, the sensors will alert the other spouse to their presence. Lights can easily be turned on for their convenience, doors unlocked and re-locked behind them, and the security system disarmed and armed right behind him or her after entry. And you just did all this from the comfort of your bed with your Ring or ADT Pulse app on your smart phone.
ADT Pulse customers will be able to make their home more secure via the Ring app. Through the Ring in-call screen, Pulse customers can lock doors, turn on lights, and arm their ADT system – all within a single experience.
In addition, the Ring doorbell event history will reside in the Pulse app camera menu. So customers will be able to view their Ring event history or click on a Ring event to launch the Ring app to view the video clip.

How Do They Do It?
ADT is constantly on the lookout for apps to integrate into its security ecosystem. They mean to envelop homeowners in a blanket of security unequaled by anyone else. In January 2016, in the Las Vegas new electronics show, ADT announced that the Ring Doorbell app is available in their Pulse ecosystem, along with August Smart Lock. ADT pays close attention to companies offering innovative security measures, and then they partner with these companies. This gives homeowners the latest and absolute best home security and home automation innovations. You get all of this is in one app, moving seamlessly from one security item to another. Pulse. It’s what ADT does.
