ADT Interactive App Features

Use remote control access to monitor and automatically adjust your security and home automation from anywhere via your mobile device. Whether you're on holiday or at work — enjoy total peace of mind knowing your home is safe and running as it should.

Home Security

The ADT Interactive App helps you safeguard the people and places you care about most by ensuring no threat goes undetected.

Arm and disarm your system on the go, check in on loved ones with 24/7 live streaming and detect danger immediately with custom alerts and motion-detection technology.


Featuring an easy-to-use interface and streamlined design, the ADT App lets you access all the information you need in one place.

Tailored to your priorities, view your most-used features like your alarm system status or live weather conditions at a glance.

Control lights

Control your lights remotely to save energy, welcome visitors when you're away, or cycle them on and off to make it appear you're home.

With Geo Services, your lights will automatically adjust based on the location of your smartphone.


Never miss a moment with custom notifications from the ADT Interactive App. Get instant email or push notifications when specific events are triggered, like forgetting to lock the front door.

Review your entire event history easily with a complete time-stamped log of daily activities in a singular feed.

Live Stream Video

Check in on your home, family or pets with 24/7 live streaming. Watch live video footage and control your security cameras from the palm of your hand via the ADT Interactive App.

An essential feature for emergencies, sophisticated video analytics enable your camera to automatically start recording when triggered by predetermined events like movement in specific areas.

Video Clips

Based on the actions you set, the system will record up to 30-second video clips. For example, you can automatically record every time your front door opens, pool lights turn on or movement is detected in areas there shouldn't be.

Visit the app library to review or download all video clips and easily identify trends or unusual behaviour.

Home security app

Your home security, your way

Smoke & heat detection

For an extra layer of protection, ADT Interactive has the ability to integrate with your smoke and heat detectors. If smoke or heat is detected in your home, our 24/7 monitoring team will alert you and your chosen emergency contacts.

Our detectors are always active, so even if your alarm system is unarmed, the ADT team is always ready to support you and your family in an emergency.

Intruder detection

Monitor the inside of your home and secure key entry points like doors and windows with passive infrared detectors (PIRs or motion detectors), door and window sensors and break glass detectors.

An ADT technician will work with you to identify your home’s unique security needs and create the most effective coverage against potential threats.

Duress alarms

An ADT home security system features a duress alarm button to help protect you and your family members when you need it most.

Based in New Zealand, our local monitoring team means that you can count on the fastest possible response if it's activated.

Interactive FAQs

Visit our Resource Centre

Does ADT have a mobile app?

Yes, the ADT Interactive App is available for all of our home security customers. You can download it from the App Store.

What does the ADT Interactive App do?

With the app, you can control your home security systems like alarms and cameras from your phone or smart device.

If your system includes home automation, your smart devices can also be controlled, accessed and viewed from the app. Other features include setting Geo-fences, scenes, garage door controls, thermostat settings and more.

Do I need the ADT Interactive app on my phone?

ADT Interactive isn't required to operate your security system; however, without the App, you may miss out on many of the features your equipment is capable of and run the risk of important settings being left unchanged.

While you can install the App on all Apple devices like iPads or Apple Watches, we recommend downloading it on your iPhone as it's more likely your mobile device will be accessible during critical moments.

Whip out your smartphone and have fingertip control of your smart security and home automation devices from virtually anywhere.

Is the ADT App free?

Yes! Existing customers can download the ADT Interactive Security App free of charge from the Apple App Store and use their login credentials to access their system.

Note: The ADT App requires a compatible system and an interactive service plan. Feature availability varies based on system, equipment, and service plan.

How do I set up the app?

The ADT App is designed to be quick and straightforward, with in-app prompts guiding you on how to set up your account and ensure your system is properly installed.

Need help? The ADT Security team can provide set-up support and answer any questions you have along the way.

Does the app work without monitoring?

Yes, you don't need an ADT Self Setup security system or monitoring plan to use its cameras. However, a paid subscription to the ADT Interactive App is required to use your cameras.

For more details, visit our Resource Centre.

What events can I set up on the ADT app?

Every home has different needs, which is why ADT Interactive is designed with customisation in mind.

Whether it's video monitoring, energy management, home automation, or intruder detection, with ADT Interactive, you'll receive real-time email, text messages, and push notifications for the specific events that matter most to you.

Based on your preferences, you can set up events to immediately know when:

  • You forget to lock doors or arm your alarm system before leaving for work or vacation
  • A security system is disarmed (and who disarmed it)
  • Someone attempts to log into your account
  • Guests arrive or leave your property
  • There’s flooding or a water leak in your basement
  • Your children open your medicine or liquor cabinets
  • Someone changes your thermostat settings
  • You've left lights and appliances running for extended periods.
