If you’ve ever dreamed of having a butler and a bouncer, you can wake up, because it’s come true! On July 14, 2016, ADT announced its partnership with smart doorbell manufacturer, Ring. Now, you can purchase the Ring™ Video Doorbell through ADT and sync it with your ADT Pulse® smart home security system. What does that mean for homeowners? Access to enhanced security, advanced technology, ADT monitoring, and top-notch customer service.
What Ring’s All About
Ring first made its debut in 2012 and has quickly taken off. That has a lot to do with its intelligent design. Ring functions as a hidden video camera and two-way intercom—allowing you to see who’s at the door, listen to what’s happening, and talk to your visitor through an app.
As soon as someone rings the doorbell or motion is detected, Ring springs into action. It’ll send you an alert through the Ring app, so you’ll know about someone’s presence right away. Then, you can monitor your visitor from afar. If you log into the app and see it’s just the mailman, you can disregard the notice. However, if the person at your door is a stranger, you can do a few different things: call the police, listen, record their every move, and/or scare them off by talking through the speaker.
Ring is discreet, high-tech, and user-friendly. All of these factors contribute to the sophisticated technology and security Ring brings to your household.
How ADT and Ring Work
ADT Pulse and Ring work through the Ring app. You can still use the ADT app to control your system, but this new partnership combines two into one. With the Ring app, you can lock the door, turn on lights, watch video through the doorbell, and control your entire security system. Existing customers with both ADT Pulse and Ring Video Doorbell can download the new app and new customers can set it up in a jiffy.
This partnership between ADT and Ring is destined to fortify homes and fight crime in neighborhoods. Set up your own “neighborhood watch” by shopping for an ADT Monitoring package that’s compatible with Ring Video Doorbell today.
