ADT Smart Connect App Features

Whether you're at home or on holiday, use the Smart Connect App to remotely control your home security and automation from anywhere. Compatible with Apple, Android and Windows devices.

Home Security

The simple, clean layout of the ADT App makes adjusting your DIY home security system effortless.

Move around your home freely even when your alarms are active with intelligent features like “Armed Stay” or "Armed Away" which let your system know if nobody is meant to be home.


Easily access all the information you need in one place with your personalised dashboard.

From your alarm system’s status to live weather conditions, quickly access your most-used features at a glance.

Custom notifications

Never miss a moment with email or push notifications triggered by specific events.

Depending on your priorities, choose from default notifications or create your own like when you've forgotten to close the garage door or turn on your alarm system.


Adjust your lighting and thermostat settings for every room with the push of a button.

Automatically switch lights on or off to cut down your energy bill, welcome visitors as they arrive, or cycle them on and off to make it appear your property is occupied when you're away.

Live Stream Video

Keep your home, loved ones and pets safe with 24/7 live streaming.

Live video recording is an essential feature for emergencies, once you receive a notification, watch what’s happening at your property in real-time.

Video Clips

Automatically record every time your front door opens, pool lights turn on or movement is detected in areas there shouldn't be.

Your app will record security camera footage of up to 30 seconds and you can download all recorded clips to gather valuable video evidence.

Home security app

Your home security, your way

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.

We understand all homes have different security needs, which is why ADT offers an over-the-phone professional security assessment to help you design the perfect setup.

Smoke & heat detection

If you have smoke or heat detectors installed, you can connect them to your DIY Home Security System for additional protection.

If triggered, our 24/7 back-to-base monitoring team will contact you and your chosen contacts. Even if your alarm system is unarmed, our experts will be notified and ready to support you in an emergency.

Duress alarms

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

In the event it's activated, our 24/7 professional monitoring team will alert you and your emergency contacts so the appropriate action can be determined.
