ADT SoSecure

ADT Stands in Support of the AAPI Community

SoSecure can be an important tool for the AAPI community since the interface is graphical in nature, easy to use, and provides multiple ways to launch an alert to ADT. Our experienced monitoring agents are always there to help and can alleviate the stigma for people that are hesitant to call 911. Our agents can help a member of the AAPI community through a moment of reassurance or during a time where they need emergency help. It is a tool that is free to use and always with you, making it an important resource.

Inside the Secretive ADT Engineering Lab Where Testing is Life

Two miles away from ADT’s U.S. headquarters, tucked away in a one-story building – unremarkable among dozens of others in this Boca Raton, Fla., commercial office park – is the operation colloquially known among ADT’ers as the “ADT Engineering Lab.” The name on its door, at suite 10, says something different. The ADT Engineering Technology Center is one of those places most new hires at the Boca Raton, Fla.-based smart home security company hear about, but when asked, few will say they’ve ever been there.  It took me two years to get my invite, the result of several months of cajoling Mark Reimer, ADT’s VP of Product Engineering, into letting me come visit.

It also alerted Jane and Tony through their mobile devices.
