ADT Pulse Adds Features

One of the criticism’s of the ADT Pulse system was a lack of “Scenes.”  Other automation systems provide the user with the ability to set up automations as a group.  Rather then making a series of individual automations a user can select a “scene” or “mode” that triggers a list of user defined automations.

ADT has sent an email to Pulse users.  See below:

Dear Valued ADT Customer,
In the next few weeks, we’ll be adding several new interactive features to selected ADT Pulse® Interactive Solutions packages – features that take ADT Pulse® simplicity and automation to a new level:

Modes: At the touch of a button, ADT Pulse “Vacation Mode” can lock the doors, turn off the lights and adjust the temperature. Or, arm the system and set your lights to turn off in 30 seconds when you select “Sleep Mode.” You can customize a total of eight different modes to tailor your environment to suit your lifestyle.

New – Home View now available for Android™ mobile devices: Previously available to IOS users, Android device users can quickly create a unique floor plan that indicates the placement of the devices connected to the ADT Pulse system in your home or business.

Home View “Zoom In”: Zoom in or out with simple gestures like pinching or double-tapping to easily view the details of the ADT Pulse devices in your home or business.

Auto-Delay Settings: Control the sequence and timing of your automations. For example, when you enter the front door, multiple automations can be set to turn on all lights immediately, lock the door after 10 seconds, then adjust the temperature after 30 seconds.

A web page with a video is available here.

From the looks of it you will know when you have the upgrade based on the addition of a added button by your alarm indicator on the portal.  Stay tuned.

    Just got the new interface. Wow. Opens up many different options for the Pulse system. It is taking me awhile to get my head around all the options. One thing I have been able to do is drastically decrease my automations. You are now allowed to combine automations for a trigger. Previously, you had to create an automation for each action. Very nice ADT. Catching up nicely with the other automation systems out there.
