ADT offers home security systems such as alarms, motion sensors and video monitoring. It offers customers the option to control their alarm system from a mobile phone using the company's ADT Pulse system. At its most basic, the application lets you arm and disarm the system remotely and receive alerts if the system is triggered. Other packages allow you to control the climate inside your home, the lighting, and view live video feeds right from the phone.
