Samsung teams up with ADT for new smart security system


Samsung and ADT have teamed up to announce a new SmartThings home security system. ADT is a professional home security company and a big name in the industry. Samsung’s SmartThings platform has a lot of security peripherals, but nothing to the extent of an ADT system.

The Starter Kit will set you back $549.99. It includes a Security Hub, 2 door and window detectors, and a motion detector. The Security Hub doubles as a SmartThings hub for connecting smart home devices. You’ll be able to purchase expansions for things like fire, carbon monoxide, and water.

Users can also sign up for ADT’s professional monitoring right from the app. It starts at $15 a month and it can be activated and ended at any time. The ADT name carries some clout, but this should not be confused with a professionally installed system. If you’re interested, it will be available on October 29th from Best Buy.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.
