App Reviews

  • Unsafe

    By gpm586
    There is an incredible delay between logging into the app and being able to arm my home. After opening the app, i see “connecting” on the home page for sometimes 5-15minutes even up to hours as I wait for the app to connect to my home system. I have even left my home disarmed overnight simply because I couldn’t get the app to connect to my alarm system. I have full internet connection at 50mbps and no issues reaching any websites on my phone. I turn WiFi off to attempt to connect via LTE to the app and the same thing occurs- “connecting to system” for 5-15minutes, sometimes it fails all together. So despite multiple connection modalities and ability to reach all other internet based services, it’s clear this is on ADT. Cox communications, my prior home security company, had a far superior response time with the app and truthfully a better all around experience. I pay for Pulse upgrade for remote access via my phone and it has let me down to the point it could be unsafe in the right circumstance should i need quick app access, not to mention leaving my home disarmed overnight due to the app’s inability to connect. Very dissappointing for the world leader in home security.
  • Used to love it... update is broken

    By JR19822000
    This app sold me on ADT. The ability to arm/disarm on the go was worth the upcharge. The last app had some issues on my wife's phone (6splus) but mine worked perfectly (7plus). The new one didn't want to connect yesterday after I downloaded it... not a huge deal.. thought it was maintenance..... connected this morning and looked promising for the new layout... closed it... ever since it won't load. Gets to the splash screen and crashes shortly after. I'm giving them a few hours until we leave for the grocery store and if it's not working I'm demanding a refund for the app fee Update: They've updated the app several times since I put this review in.... app is still broken. Less than 10% of the time I need to use it I can. I've tried all of their steps to fix it. Signing in using my password rather than my thumbprint has helped some, but sometimes the app fails to load completely. I've been back and fourth with their customer service several times and they refuse to offer me any credit and only one has offered to remove the charges for the app but that also would take away the access through the website as well. Someone at apple needs to take this piece of garbage down.
  • 09/27 UPDATE - Completely useless

    By zorabies
    UPDATE: the update that ADT recently pushed has been like night and day. I have had close to 100% consistency on using the app (either through wifi or cell service). I'm SO extremely grateful they made the adjustment that I'm sure many people desperately needed. I'm giving 4 stars because I still have issues with the actual system, but the app has been great so far! If I had known of the inadequacy of this app while subscribing to their service, I would have gone with a different provider. This app will freeze my phone constantly, regardless of if it actually connects to my system or not. It almost never works, which have caused me to set off my alarm many times just trying to enter my house. I have spent countless hours sitting in front of my house, either trying to get in, or trying to set my system to leave. Absolutely ridiculous, useless and frustrating, to say the least. Do yourself a favor and find an alternative, or wait for them to fix this stupid remote access.
  • Disappointing

    By Amr091078
    Not that this platform is stable enough for it, but you should also have 🍎WATCH access. For the extra cost on your plan this app should be far more reliable and interactive. More often than not It takes far too long to connect to my system. And I often get an error message when I try to arm the system leaving me frustrated and having to remember to try again in a few minutes making a task that should be convenient, inconvenient! On the rare occasion that the app loads smoothly it’s actually easy and fast to use. Checking zones and arming with ease and having the option to bypass on the fly is clutch... when it works. Now we just need to get it working like that every time. Then think about integrating the 🍎watch. Would love to be able to check zones arm/disarm with the same zone bypass options and view cams. I know I’m asking for a lot but you also require quite the premium cost on your equipment and service as well. So I think it’s a fare ask. Hopefully someone that matters actually gets eyes on this and takes note lol
  • Upgrade is severely lacking

    By BarbP3040
    The video clip functionality in this new upgrade is terrible. You could no longer slide between clips. It’s necessary now to close each clip, find a new clip, then open it. Very slow, and creates a safety issue in that after receiving a notification, it’s too difficult to view a clip to see what is going on at the moment. The video clip screen is very small now unless you turn your phone into landscape mode. This was not the case before the upgrade. Also, the filters won’t hold and I have to necessary keep changing them to see all cameras. My husband doesn’t have this problem on his firvaone reason, although we updated the same time! As mentioned in a previous review, the connections are terrible as well. Sometimes it is necessary to log in and out a few times repeatedly before the cameras will connect. This is just unacceptable in a home security device. We could be robbed blind, have a fire, or any number of bad things happening by the time we finally got connected! We are not at all pleased with the ADT pulse app.
  • ADT Security is highly recommended.

    By WNnJN
    I switched from another cheaper home Security Company because of inconsistent customer service, inadequate equipment and their out sourcing of call center. I got inadequate equipment, security and service from the previous company. Fortunately, ADT equipment is superior and security so much better. ADT monthly cost is higher but reasonable especially with much improved service and security. ADT initial professional installation and basic equipment is free. This includes the front door RING system with camera, motion sensor and intercom. My wife and I are pleased with the professional installation with improved security and internet fire alert. Their cameras cover more area and is clearer. Switching to ADT is one of our better decisions we made. ADT is a dedicated security company with excellent customer service. Highly recommended.
  • Terrible service. Terrible app. Terrible support.

    By Mighty Unicorn
    ADT is not working like it used to. The app doesn’t connect to the system, and it is impossible to get ahold of anyone at the company who can understand what you are explaining to them. When you do explain the issue, they give vague answers and blame it on you, your phone, your cell service provider (which makes ZERO sense)... anything but ADT is to blame. When I called them for the third time today, they told me to uninstall and reinstall the app. I uninstalled, and guess what? The app had disappeared from the App Store entirely! The rep who talked to me on my fourth call put me on hold forever, then came back on and said their manager was shocked to see the App didn’t exist in the App Store. They then sent me to a direct portal, but you can’t control your system from there at all. Now the app is back in the App Store, but you can’t set your alarm with it. My contract just ran out with these goobers. I have a new security system being installed next weekend. ADT is an embarrassment to themselves. Later, jerks!
  • Update: Why do i pay for this ?!

    By Adrenaline00
    Update: Its working ok for now, hopefully they do not have another crash. I feel that Adt should supply additional remotes to arm/disarm the alarm in the event the app crashes again. If you pay for a service by a security company claiming to be the best then the company should step up and give you your money’s worth. Other companies do not have as many crashes as adt does. here’s to hoping for the best. Its 1:18am and I cannot get into my house. I got home from work 30 minutes ago and my family is sleeping inside OBVIOUSLY, so what do I do ? wake up them AND the neighborhood with a blaring alarm in order to get inside my house ? or sleep in my car ? Gee I wish ADT would give everyone who has the app a remote to disarm the alarm because they may find themselves tired, unable to respectfully get their home, etc AT 1AM !!!! EVERYONE WHO READS THIS, DO NOT PAY EXTRA FOR A SERVICE THAT DOES NOT WORK CONSISTENTLY.
  • Worst app in all app history

    By Notification failure
    They still refuse to fix the camera issues, constant battle to view my home when cameras are not working. Also doesn't matter what camera it is. Corporate should be ashamed of themselves as they continue to blame the customers that it's a wifi issue or interference issue. What good is this app if it does not work as advertised. The software engineers obviously do not have a single clue to why these issues keep happening and also refuse to fix them. ADT you truly are useless. New app same old crap it's the worst EVER nothing works and ADT gives you nothing but the run around. Worst security system in the industry. I'm actually calling the better business bureau and reporting them enough is enough!!!!! A couple years later and finally the app is working as advertised.
  • Wish o stars was an option doesn't work

    By upset wasted my last $
    Update: if possible has gotten worse. My app/system hasnt recorded anything since the 15th. I have unpugged and unplugged even the router and the modem. I have been a customer for YEARS! Finally called tonight was told I guess we could send out a rep but if we do and it isn’t our issue you have to pay. AGREE W THE PREVIOUS REVIEW APPLE NEEDS TO TAKE THIS DOWN! When I first received the app it worked great. After the last two updates WORTHLESS! When I contacted them they pretty much had no accountability and stated they could see it worked. I was having trouble with camera clips within the app not showing the most recent one. They told me they could see I have clips saved and pretty much the tone of their email to me made me think I knew nothing about technology. Why would one want an app if this is true. I know for a fact coding and websites make apps for people and companies. Now when you try to access clips it just gets stuck on camera.
