LAS VEGAS, January 8, 2018 - ADT, a leading provider of security and automation solutions for homes and businesses, today announced the launch of ADT Go, an innovative and easy-to-use mobile app to connect and protect families wherever life takes them. ADT Go was created in partnership with trusted locator and communication tool Life360, and a free premium trial is now available for anyone looking to experience ADT professional monitoring outside of their home or business.
“We believe everyone deserves to feel safe, no matter where they are, and the need to protect your family doesn’t stop at the front door,” said Jay Darfler, Senior Vice President, Emerging Markets at ADT. “ADT Go represents an opportunity to redefine what personal security truly means. By partnering with Life360, our hope is to empower more families to experience life because they feel safe.”
ADT Go is equipped with 24/7 emergency response from ADT’s live monitoring agents, backed by Life360’s proprietary location technology. Core features include:
- SOS Emergency Response: Access to 24/7 emergency response from ADT’s live monitoring agents, providing peace of mind knowing ADT is there for your family around the clock when they’re away from home
- Family Connectivity: Simplify communication with family location sharing, private messaging, activity history and battery life alerts
- Safety Assistance: Automatic notifications when loved ones arrive or depart from designated places like home, work or school. Driver safety alerts notify family automatically when a crash is detected, dispatches emergency services and stays on the line until help arrives as well as provides extended roadside assistance for minor accident support.

According to a Pew Research Center survey, some 84 percent of American households contain at least one smartphone. ADT Go will transform your family’s device into a mobile personal security device, giving users peace of mind in knowing loved ones are safe and connected from anywhere.
