ADT Launches Voice Control for Smart Homes

Electronic security provider ADT has launched ADT Pulse Voice, a new application that integrates personal voice recognition into its existing home automation technology. This app can be programmed to respond only to select voices.

Home automation technology allows users to remotely control their home's security, thermostat, lighting and appliances. The company's ADT Pulse Voice technology enables customers to log in and log out of the app using custom technology that recognizes unique voice signatures.

Users can log in verbally through an iOS or Android smartphone and activate or deactivate their pulse security panel, control their home's lighting, regulate thermostats, lock and unlock doors, and check the status of their homes.

ADT Pulse Voice app uses a multi-layered identification process, which enhances security by permitting only registered members of a household to log in. Besides recognizing personal voice commands, the ADT Pulse Voice app also offers an auditory feedback feature to verify actions and system status for all of its connected devices.
