ADT Pulse and CanopyADT updates security offerings across home, mobile, and automotive.
Hi, I'm Rich Brown for CNET. We're here at CES and ADT's booth, they've got a whole bunch of things to announce at the show today. So first, it has to do with ADT's Pulse Home Security System. There's a couple of announcements there. First is her integrating voice control at home, next they are tying it to a McAfee service that will let you track digital devices, so if you lose your phone, you can tie into ADT pulse. Finally, from Pulse is integration with [unk]. They you'll be able to use your voice to talk to your ADT Home automation system through your car. It's pretty cool. It's a nice kind of a remote control feature. So all those things are part of Pulse which is an existing system that ADT's had the market for a while, and the new approach for ADT is its new Canopy app, which gives you sort of a live monitoring service you can take with you on the go. An upgrade to that is called Chaperone, and a new approach for ADT is this Canopy app. And the base level for this program, you can look on the map, see where your friends and family are, talk to them securely, it's pretty handy. You wanna upgrade to the Chaperone service, you get live monitoring from the ADT's monitoring service. If you are walking through a dangerous neighborhood, you could call the service and say, hey, I'm feeling a little shaky around here. They'll-- It's gonna hang out with you as you are walking through and you know you'll be safe and have some help close at hand if you need it. So I'm Rich Brown and we're here at ADTs booth talking about Pulse Canopy's Chaperone.
