New Mobile Solution Provides Monitoring Beyond The Home For People Who Want To Live Life On Their Own Terms – In Charge, In Control And Safe

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 18, 2015-- The ADT Corporation (NYSE: ADT), a leading provider of security, automation, and health solutions for homes and businesses, today announced the expansion of its health product portfolio with the introduction of the wearable On-The-Go Emergency Response System.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one out of three adults over the age of 65 in North America fall each year, and many who fall and suffer moderate to severe injuries are unable to manually call for help. ADT’s new solution, which operates on a leading nationwide cellular network, boasts connectivity to a specially trained team of ADT Health employees, fall detection sensors, and GPS location capabilities -- all in a single and easy-to-use device.

In the event of a fall, the device will detect the fall and connect the customer directly with ADT’s 24/7 professional monitoring center, where a specially trained ADT professional can determine if emergency responders or a caregiver should be dispatched to the customer’s location -- whether they are in their kitchen or a parking lot miles away from home. For other emergencies, customers can also connect directly to ADT’s professional monitoring center with a simple press of a button.

“America’s growing senior population is more independent and active than ever before, and ADT’s On-The-Go Emergency Response System is always there in the event of an emergency, helping our customers age with confidence,” said Don Boerema, ADT Health business leader. “In an emergency situation, the difference between a severe and fatal injury can come down to a matter of minutes, so it’s critical that you not compromise on your safety and security.”

This is part of ADT’s comprehensive health and security ecosystem for the growing senior population who want to enjoy independent lives to the fullest beyond the confines of their home. According to Pew Research Center population projections, 10,000 Americans will turn 65 every day, reinforcing the need for health products like ADT’s On-The-Go Emergency Response System.
