ADT says its customers can now purchase Google Nest Mini, Nest Hub, and Nest Hub Max products and have them professionally installed by its network of smart home technicians.

Customers with ADT Command & Control and Blue by ADT smart home security systems can now control system arming and disarming, connected lights, locks, ADT thermostats and system status using voice instead of using an app or panel. The integration also enables control of ADT-compatible smart devices through touch control using the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max.

Last year the companies said their relationship would see Google fully integrate its hardware and services with ADT’s DIY and professionally installed smart home security solutions. As part of the partnership, Google also acquired 6.6 per cent ownership of ADT.

ADT announced in November that it would accelerate the release of its new ADT + Google do-it-for-me professionally installed system to the second half of 2021. The new platform will feature co-branding with Google, integrated Google Maps products, Nest cameras and thermostats, and Google video analytics.
