BOCA RATON, Fla. -- January 9, 2013

Every January, Americans take time to reflect on the previous year, creating
resolutions for the year ahead. Whether they aim to save money or spend more
time with loved ones, consumers look for ways to get back on track after the
hectic holiday season. By providing home management with the push of a button,
the ADT Pulse^SM home automation system can help consumers easily stick to
their resolutions in 2013, and get more time back in their busy schedules.

“Our customers have told us that maintaining an organized, productive routine
while trying to save money can be a huge challenge,” said Tony Wells, chief
marketing officer at ADT. “With their needs in mind, we’ve further built out
the ADT Pulse ecosystem by allowing users to keep track of their home and
control its functions such as lights, thermostats and door locks from almost
anywhere.”

ADT Pulse can be programmed to set a routine for a smarter home to help you
better meet your resolutions – no matter what your personality:

  *The Multitasking Mom or Dad: For the mom or dad who wants to reduce their
    stress levels this year, ADT Pulse can be programmed to take care of your
    day-to-day responsibilities, making home management less stressful even if
    you work outside the home. Through the ADT Pulse app for iPhone and
    Android, Pulse users can create a schedule to turn off lights the kids
    always forget or check-in via live video to make sure children are working
    on their homework each day.
  *An Energy-Conscious Consumer: For those planning to cut costs in 2013,
    Pulse has a programmable thermostat that automatically adjusts the
    temperature in your home. According to the US EPA’s Energy Star Program,
    by properly programming your thermostat settings, you can save about $180
    every year in energy costs.
  *A Protective Parent: For the parents who work full time and want to feel
    more connected to their kids, ADT Pulse’s alert capabilities can let you
    know when your kids come home from school with a text message or e-mail.
    If your children do not come home when expected, ADT Pulse can even send
    an alert noting that the front door was not opened on schedule. Backed by
    six ADT-owned and operated customer monitoring centers, ADT Pulse can be
    on alert for you and your family to help protect and connect what matters
    most.
  *The Concerned Caretaker: For families who want to show special loved ones
    that they’re always there for them, ADT Pulse provides constant connection
    throughout the day. For example, if your elderly mother usually wakes up
    before 9:00 am, but the motion sensor in your kitchen does not detect
    movement, ADT Pulse can send a text so you can proactively check on her
    instead of worrying from afar. Users can even unlock their front or back
    doors in real time from any web-connected device to let a visiting nurse
    into the home.

With its interactive and customizable features, ADT Pulse can help monitor
your home from wherever you are so you can reclaim time in your schedule and
focus on meeting your goals in 2013. To learn more about the ADT Pulse system,
