ADT Enriches Smart Security Ecosystem with Nest Partnership

Pulse Integration with Nest Learning Thermostat to be Powered by Newly Released ADT Pulse App

BOCA RATON, Fla.--The ADT Corporation (NYSE:ADT), a leading provider of security and automation solutions for homes and businesses, today announced a partnership with Nest Labs to make it easier for ADT customers to manage their comfort and save energy. ADT Pulse customers can now control their Nest Learning Thermostat conveniently from ADT's updated mobile app for Pulse for a more seamless smart home experience. In addition, customers in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver and Miami may be eligible to receive a Nest Thermostat when they sign up for select Pulse service plans. This is the first such commercial partnership and integration by a North American home security & automation provider and is expected to roll out nationwide by the end of the year.

"The integration with Nest is an important milestone for ADT as we continue to expand our ecosystem," said ADT Chief Innovation Officer Arthur Orduña. "Giving our customers the security and monitoring they need to protect their most important assets, along with the smart home and automation technologies they desire, is a critical part of the new ‘Smart Security' category that we are defining for the North American market."

The partnership with Nest is the latest example of ADT's efforts to deliver advanced technology and original solutions to its customers, through product integration and partnerships with innovative companies. ADT continues to collaborate with other key players within the security and smart home markets, having recently developed an API (Application Program Interface) architecture to accelerate the integration of innovative products with ADT's Pulse offering.

"ADT is the premier company in the home security space and like Nest, they care about keeping customers safe and comfortable," said Ben Bixby, Head of Energy and Enterprise Programs, Nest. "By working together, we are making it possible for ADT customers to conveniently manage their comfort -- and home security - from one app."

ADT's New Mobile Experience

ADT also unveiled its new Pulse mobile experience, which is available starting today for free by downloading ADT's updated mobile application through the Apple App Store or Google Play. The new mobile experience is designed specifically with the modern consumer in mind. It is an intuitive and contemporary experience that makes managing home automation and security more effective - especially for on-the-go lifestyles. In addition, ADT's changes to the Pulse app help power ADT's open API strategy for further integration with best-in-class third-party solutions, such as Nest, and to equip consumers with a smart and secure home platform that will evolve to meet their changing needs. Available for iPhone/iPads with iOS 7.0 and above and Android phones/tablets 4.0 and above, the sleek new interface includes the following new features, among others:

* Integration with Nest: Equips users with the ability to control their Nest Learning Thermostat directly from the new Pulse mobile app for a cohesive and intuitive experience. Current ADT customers who already have a Nest Thermostat can also link their device to ADT Pulse by updating to the new mobile application.
* "Always On" Dashboard: Provides current activity within your home and business, as well as the ability to take control of what is happening next via automation tools.
* Customized Visual Experience: Because the Pulse platform serves both ADT residential and business customers, the new mobile application provides a different visual experience based on the needs of each specific demographic.
* Voice Commands: The new app also includes the voice control features of ADT's prior mobile application, PulseVoiceTM, enabling a robust and comprehensive set of voice commands for ease-of-use and seamless control.
