Google’s ADT Partnership Offers a New Home Security Product to Show for it

    After investing $450 million into ADT home security company, the companies now have an integrated offering that customers can use to create a smart security system for themselves. ADT’s Self-Setup system was launched last month. It will now be integrated with Google Nest devices, including its indoor and outdoor cameras and video doorbells.

    While ADT has offered Google’s smart home devices as part of its professionally-installed packages since shortly after the investment, this is the first time the two companies have offered a complete software security integration for a DIY product. ADT’s sensors can now be controlled via the Google Home app, a Google Nest Hub or ADT’s own app. You can also arm or disarm the system via a Nest hub. ADT Self-Setup can be professionally monitored by ADT SMART monitoring for $24.99 per month. This includes the option of video verification which can speed up emergency response times.

    This package is compelling on paper and starts at $219.98 (including a Nest Video Doorbell) which is much less than Google’s $400 Nest Secure system. This product was discontinued shortly after ADT announced their partnership.

    ADT Self Setup offers a competitive price compared to SimpliSafe and Ring, which offer hardware packages starting at $200. Professional monitoring is $20 per month and $28 per month (SimpliSafe includes visual verification, Ring doesn’t).

    We’ll just have to wait and see how this hardware performs. ADT’s Self Setup hardware looks identical to what it sold with its first DIY home security system, Blue by ADT. Blue was launched by ADT a week after the Google investment. It included a number of cameras and a video doorbell. ADT discontinued Blue sales but continues to support the service.ADT Self Setup with Google Home starts at $220.

    ADT’s Self-Setup features door and window sensors, motion sensors and flood and temperature sensors. A keychain remote is also available to disarm the system. ADT Smart Hub is required to set up the system. This hub includes a keypad that acts as the brain of the sensors. The system can be purchased packaged with Nest products such as the Nest Doorbell (battery not wired), Nest Camera indoor and exterior. Customers can also purchase both Nest’s thermostats through ADT’s website.

    A video by ADT shows how you can trigger smart home automations using the ADT sensors. This includes turning lights on and off when the motion sensor detects movement. You can also arm or disarm the system via a Nest Hub. It is not clear whether you can incorporate any Nest gear that you already own into ADT’s system. We reached out to ADT for further information.
