This product is no longer available. We recommend the ADT Command Thermostat. This RCS Battery-Powered Thermostat TBZ48 can be used with the ADT Pulse system to change the temperature in your home from the internet or your smartphone. It needs to replace the existing thermostat you have in the home and then be tied into the ADT Pulse system. It can either use battery power or be connected to an AC adapter or get power from your HVAC system. You must have the option on your ADT Pulse portal to add this thermostat. Make sure you have that before purchasing.
