Love in the air and sports on the screen

February 01, 2022

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and so is the Big Game. Plus, the 2022 Winter Olympics start on the 4th and end on the 20th. It may seem like a lot to keep track of, but we’ve got you covered. We’re here to tell you why Blue is a great V Day gift, and how you can settle in at home for the Big Game using your voice. We’ve also got an important reminder regarding National Battery Day on the 18th.

Nothing says "I love you" like Blue

Having a valentine in your life is a lot like having a Blue DIY security system. We both give you a sense of warmth and security, just in different ways. They’re there to cozy up with you on the couch and rub your back, and we’re here to adjust the thermostat and watch your back.

And what better time to share the love of Blue than Valentine’s Day? You may not be able to be with them 24/7, but you can at least rest easy knowing they’ve got our ‘round-the-clock protection. Here’s why DIY security is the sweetest gift for your sweetheart:

  • They’ll always know what’s happening at their place—even if they’re at yours. With the Blue by ADT app, they can stream live video from their security cams and get push notifications about activity at home.
  • You check in on them anytime with 2-way talk. If you’re a user on your partner’s account, you can use the app and chime in with an “I love you” or just say hi via their indoor camera’s 2-way talk feature.
  • They can get the door without getting off the couch with a Blue by ADT Doorbell Camera. Whether the two of you are getting food dropped off during movie night, or they’re bingeing their fav show alone, the app lets them see who’s there without missing a second of screen time.
  • They’ll get a little help around the house. Blue by ADT works with Hey Google, so they can control their security system and smart home devices with just their voice.

Get a little help keeping up with all the action

Between the 2022 Winter Olympics and the Big Game, there’s a whole lot of sports to keep up with this month. If you add a Google Nest speaker or display to your Blue security system, you can easily keep tabs on your fav teams and athletes and get ready for the Big Game. Just ask Google to:

  • Set a reminder an hour before kickoff or before Olympic events you want to catch
  • Add your favorite snacks to your shopping list so you’re stocked up for the Big Game
  • Stream highlights and game clips on your Nest Hub (2nd gen) or Nest Hub Max’s touchscreen
  • Or ask Google about scores, standings, medal counts and other stats

Recharge for 2022

While it is important to remember to take some time to relax and center yourself, we’re here to remind you to recharge in the literal sense. February 18th is National Battery Day and the perfect time to put fresh batteries in your smoke and CO detectors. And while you’re at it, be sure to check the status of your wireless Blue by ADT security devices and purchase new batteries if need be.

You can find replacement batteries for your Blue Wireless Outdoor Camera on our website. If you’re not sure what kind of battery you need for your other devices, you can find out on our Support Center.
