Alerts keep you in the loop

Being away from home doesn’t mean you won’t be connected to your home. With custom alerts and notifications set up in Pulse, if any of your smoke, carbon monoxide, door/window or motion sensors are triggered, you can receive an immediate alert on your mobile devices. And because we also monitor your sensors 24/7, we’ll be able to notify first responders if there’s a threat or emergency affecting you, your family or your home.

ADT Pulse customer reviews

I love having the peace of mind ADT brings and with Pulse it's even better. I have a grandson that comes over and I do not need to give him a code. He can 

call me if I'm not home and if I want to let him in I can do that from anywhere and I can reactivate it once he has gone.

I need to update the system and pulse was the answer. The service tech was very professional showed me the new features and how to setup what I

needed. Answered every question in language that I understood, not some technical remarks that would confuse me. The system just works at a fair price for sound peace of mind. I trust what ADT is and does for me.

I have had the ADT Pulse system for 1 month. I am very pleased with it. I especially like using my smartphone to activate the system from wherever I 

am. I would strongly recommend the ADT Pulse system to my family and friends. It is easy to use and well worth it.

ADT Pulse FAQs

How does the ADT wireless security system work?

Our burglar alarms may be armed in the “Away” or “Stay” mode. Once the burglar alarms are activated, each monitored zone has the ability to recognize a violation. Once a zone has been violated, the intruder alarm system then dials an ADT monitoring center and transmits the message through a telephone line. Once the signal is received, the intruder alarm system will wait to send another message if another zone is tripped. Entering the code on the burglar alarm's keypad and turning off the system will end this process with the ADT monitoring center.

If I lose power, will my wireless security system still work?

Yes. In case of a power loss, the back-up battery will activate to maintain your intruder alarm protection for several hours. In the event your battery is low, a low-battery signal will be sent to your ADT monitoring center so you can be notified.

What happens when I press the panic or fire alarm buttons on the wireless security system touchpad?

If you hold down the panic or fire alarm buttons on the burglar alarm touchpad for 1 to 3 seconds, an alarm is transmitted to the ADT monitoring center, and emergency services are dispatched immediately. An alarm received in this manner cannot be canceled.
