IoT Home Security - The Future of Connected Devices

IoT-new

Those of us that watched The Jetsons on TV may have marveled at the flying cars and moving sidewalks of the future. Many years later, we aren’t quite there yet, but with IoT we’re pretty close.

Maybe the term “IoT” sounds familiar? It’s a pretty popular topic of conversation, especially on the internet. And it’s a fast-growing industry. But what is IoT?

IoT is short for the “Internet of Things.” And according to Forbes, IoT is a “giant connected network of ‘things.’” Things meaning IoT devices that are connected to each other and to the internet.

Home Automation

A related and more common term you may recognize is Home Automation—the ability to schedule and automate your Smart Home or IoT connected devices.

Home Automation falls under the umbrella of IoT and connected devices. At their best, Home Automation IoT devices can help make life easier and better. IoT can connect all of your favorite devices like Amazon Alexa, smart plugs, and smart light bulbs.

But did you know it can connect your Home Security System?
Let’s take a look at the different connected devices you can incorporate into a Home IoT S
ecurity System.

IoT Connected Devices

ADT® Video Doorbell

The ADT® Video Doorbell allows you to answer your front door from virtually anywhere with clear HD video streaming and two-way audio—all from the ADT Pulse® + Video app on your smartphone or smart device.

The ADT Video Doorbell also sends alerts to your smartphone when motion is detected, and records motion and doorbell-activated video clips for you to view later—which is great for when you’re away from home, or unable to come to the door.

  • The ADT Video Doorbell can help protect you from:
    • Theft
    • Intruders
    • Unwanted solicitors
    • Package pirates

So, how does the ADT Video Doorbell work with your other IoT devices and IoT Home Security?

  • You can remotely welcome guests to your home with the ADT Video Doorbell:
    • Greet guests with the ADT Video Doorbell’s two-way audio and video capabilities.
    • Grant access to your home by arming and disarming your IoT Home Security System through the ADT® Pulse app.
    • Remotely unlock your front door with one of your other IoT connected devices: the Smart Lock.
    • When your guests are ready to leave, re-arm your system from your smartphone or smart device.

Smart Lock

The Smart Lock allows you to lock and unlock your front door from virtually anywhere with the ADT Pulse® app on your smartphone.

You and your family can lock and unlock the front door using the ADT Pulse® app or a keypad combination code. With the Smart Lock, you’ll never have to worry about getting locked out of your home again. Or wonder if you remembered to lock the door after you left home.

You can grant keyless entry to guests through the app or create keypad combinations for regular visitors.

You’ll receive alerts to your connected devices when your Smart Lock status changes, so you can always know when someone enters or leaves your home. And with the ability to set up to 30 unique passcodes, no one needs to share a code, and you’ll always know who is coming or going by the code that was used.

It’s an easy fix in the ADT® Pulse app if someone accidentally shares a passcode, or if you need to remove someone’s access to your home.

You can even automate your Smart Locks to automatically unlock if there is ever a smoke or fire-triggered alarm—so first responders can easily enter your home to provide aid.

  • The Smart Lock pairs with your other IoT Home Security devices, including:
    • ADT Video Doorbell
    • Smart Plugs (for lighted entry)
    • Voice Assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home

Indoor Camera

The Indoor Camera allows you to keep an eye on the people and different areas of your home in real time—all from your smartphone or connected devices.

You’ll receive alerts and video clips when the Indoor Camera detects motion, which will help you to better protect your home and family.

  • You won’t miss a thing that happens in your home with:
    • Clear, HD video
    • Day and night camera modes
    • Live streaming, motion-activated video clips, and video recording
    • The ability to switch between different video cameras and angles in the ADT Pulse® + Video app

The Indoor Camera also pairs with IoT devices like Amazon Alexa and Google Home for a voice- controlled IoT Home Security System.

Alexa Integration

If you already own (and love) an Alexa voice assistant device, you may be excited to learn about the different ways you can integrate Alexa voice commands into your IoT Home Security System.

You can level up your IoT security with hands-free control by pairing an Alexa device with your home’s connected IoT devices.

You may have heard news stories about hackers and IoT devices. But the Alexa ADT® Pulse skill helps make it easier to keep your family and home safe. Your privacy and security are important, so Alexa asks for a verbal PIN to disarm your ADT system or unlock your Smart Locks. This can help prevent others from accessing your IoT Security System through Alexa.

Do you know your Alexa voice commands?

Here are some of the most popular Alexa commands you can use to manage your IoT Security System with the ADT® Pulse skill:

  • Security System Alexa Commands:
    • Alexa, arm my system in Away mode.
    • Alexa, arm my system in Stay mode.
    • Alexa, disarm my system with PIN 1234.
    • Alexa, is my system armed?
  • Smart Lock Alexa Commands:
    • Alexa, lock the Front Door Lock.
    • Alexa, unlock the Front Door Lock with PIN 1234.
    • Alexa, is the Front Door locked?
  • Lights (Smart Plug) Alexa Commands:
    • Alexa, turn on the Bedroom Light.
    • Alexa, turn off the Front Hall Light.
    • Alexa, dim the Living Room Light.
    • Alexa, dim the Living Room Light to 50%.
