At home. At work. On the go. This is the latest promise from Fidelity ADTs newest innovation in
home security. Through SecureConnect, Fidelity ADT puts the power of security and home
automation at your fingertips through your smartphone.
“With SecureConnect you can view the status of your home security system, arm and disarm your
alarm, switch and dim your lights, detect movement, control your blinds, heating, air conditioning
and so much more using your smartphone,” says Stuart Clarkson, Managing Executive for Fidelity
ADT. With the evolving security landscape and the drive towards always-on devices and the Internet
of Things, Fidelity ADT is paving the way in merging security with innovative technology that goes
beyond just home security.
Today’s modern consumer not only wants more control of their home security, they want more
control of every aspect of their home. “Identifying this gap in the South African market, we are
proud to announce that we are launching this exciting new offering which takes home automation to
the next level,” says Clarkson.
In the past home automation systems have been complex and expensive products. Fidelity ADT
believes in making high-end technology available to everyone, and has specifically designed the
concept to be modular so that customers can customise their level of home automation and add
onto the product as their budget and needs change.
“A customer may just want to start by being able to remotely view what’s happening at home, or
arming and disarming their alarm, but later they can include additional features like cooling or
heating their home or opening and closing their blinds. These features not only provide convenience
but also further enhance home security because it creates the illusion that someone is home and
also allows our customer to safely be notified when there is a problem. They can then see for
themselves what that problem is,” continues Clarkson. All signals are still prioritised and managed by
the Fidelity ADT monitoring centre, but the power of knowing is in the hands of the customer.
“This provides greater peace of mind and makes the system useful for every day convenience at an
affordable price,” concludes Clarkson.
