The ADT Corporation Announces Enhancements to its Pulse Platform; Collaborates with LG Electronics for Smart Security Product

The ADT Corporation unveiled a series of innovative partnerships and new product and platform enhancements aimed at delivering advanced solutions to its residential and business customer base. ADT also announced new enhancements to its Pulse platform that enable more rapid application development, integration, and support of third parties, their services and devices. The enhancements will allow for greater focus and continuous improvements to the Pulse user experience on mobile, tablet and other web-enabled devices. Based on new Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and technologies developed by ADT, the Pulse platform is now an open standards-based framework for the secure connected world. ADT continues to work with previously announced and new partners, such as Ford Sync, Intel Security, iControl Networks, Life360, IF (formerly IFTTT) and Nest. ADT's new Pulse mobile application, which is scheduled to be released in summer 2015, is an example of the enhanced Pulse platform's capabilities. Integrating features, including voice authentication and control, into a sleek and stylish new design and navigation scheme, the new Pulse mobile app raises the bar on the mobile user experience for home security and automation. In a first for the company, ADT will deliver the Smart Security system as an all-in-one security and home automation solution via its collaboration with LG Electronics. Planned for introduction later in 2015, the LG Smart Security product combines secure ADT professional monitoring and video hosting with a security camera gateway solution. This will serve the growing segment of consumers demanding best-in-class professional security monitoring, coupled with an intuitive, premium product. LG's compact plug-and-play smart security device offers users the flexibility to monitor home conditions remotely and add the ADT service for additional protection. Building on LG advancements in the IoT, the device can also serve as a central hub for the Smart Home, enabling users to connect seamlessly to peripheral devices and control them through one centralized mobile app.
