ADT is introducing its latest feature for its home automation solution ADT
Pulse® – remote door locks, putting a “master key” at consumers’ fingertips.
ADT Pulse users will now be able to lock or unlock any door in their home
using their tablet, smartphone, or the computer on their desk. ADT spent more

“ADT Pulse allows me to take shortcuts in my daily routine, making my life so
