ADT has been the leader in home security innovation since our company’s founding, and we continue that proud tradition today, more than at any time in our industry’s evolution. Today, ADT is employing technology like machine learning (ML) to help connect and protect our customers in more secure and helpful ways than ever before.
We spoke with Don Young, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of ADT, ahead of his executive Q&A on Aug. 18 at Parks Associates Connections-US virtual conference to get his insight on the state of the smart home security market. Don recently was named ADT’s Chief Operating Officer after serving as EVP and Chief Information Officer of ADT.
To understand the ADT of tomorrow, it’s important to know the ADT of the past. It was August 14, 1874 when ADT became incorporated in Baltimore. Now in its 147th year, ADT has a rich heritage built on customer service and forged by change. The iconic brand began as a telegraph delivery service. While ADT stands for American District Telegraph, it was nicknamed “All Day Trotters” because thousands of ‘messenger boys’ would traverse the streets of major cities like New York, Boston, and Philadelphia.
As consumers continue to rely on more intuitive and interactive security products and services, ADT is expanding beyond the home to help deliver protection and convenience in more places. Already, ADT’s medical alert and fall detection has been credited with saving many lives, and now we are applying that same approach to automotive safety.
