It’s our turn to give thanks

November 10, 2022

ADT customers

Last month, we talked about why it was important for you to show your gratitude to first responders and teachers. But this time, we want to show our appreciation to you, our ADT customers, and to caregivers with a special offer. We’ll also be sharing some tips about how you can use smart lights to help adjust to the time change. Plus, you’ll learn about how you can properly recycle batteries and other pesky electronics.

We’re thankful for you

Thanksgiving is almost upon us. And in the spirit of giving thanks, we’d like to take a moment and express our gratitude to you.

Thank you for trusting us to help protect your family and the things that matter most in your lives. We know there’s nothing more important to you than the safety of your loved ones, and it’s our privilege to help provide you with peace of mind. We hope that your life as an ADT customer is just a little bit easier, that things at home are a little more convenient and that the upcoming holiday season is one of gratitude and joy for you and your family.

Caregiver offer

ADT Medical Alert offer:
Thanks for being the best caregiver ever.

While we’re giving thanks, we also want to take a moment to show our gratitude to anyone who regularly takes care of seniors or an older loved one. From managing medications and doctor’s visits, to responding with compassion in emergency situations, to balancing work and taking care of the rest of the family, caregivers are the backbone of long-term care nationwide, and we’re grateful for their selfless, 24/7/365 work.

To show our support, we’re giving you a special offer on an ADT Medical Alert System. ADT Medical Alert Systems let the beloved seniors in your life call for help with the touch of a button. Here’s how they work:

  1. They press the button
    Personal help buttons can be worn around the neck and wrist, or mounted on the wall, and will send an emergency alert to ADT when pressed. Fall detection pendants can automatically* send alerts if a fall occurs.
  2. We respond
    ADT senior sensitivity-trained monitoring professionals will check in on your loved one using 2-way talk to determine what kind of help they need—if any.
  3. They get help
    Our monitoring agents will alert you, any other primary caregivers and/or the appropriate emergency responders based on the circumstances and your family’s preferences.

To show our support, we’re giving you a special offer on an ADT Medical Alert System

To get yours, call (833) 238-8425

*Fall detection pendant does not detect 100% of falls.
†Requires a monthly agreement. The customer will be billed monthly, excluding applicable taxes upon receipt of the unit. Learn more at www.adt.com/health/best-deal. Offer valid until 12/31/2022.

Daylight savings

Shorter days, smarter lights

Daylight saving time ended on November 6. If you have an analog clock or watch, remember to turn it back one hour. As the days get shorter with less sunlight, you may need extra lights on around your home in the mornings and evenings. Blue DIY systems and cameras work with smart home automation to control your smart devices, including indoor and outdoor lights. (That means you can use your system to control smart holiday lighting as well.)

Manage your system and turn off your home’s smart lights from virtually anywhere using the Blue by ADT mobile app. Use your system to help with dimming, brightening and switching your smart lights on or off. You can also put smart lights on timers to use less electricity, make it seem like you’re at home or to keep the light on for your furbaby. Set your smart lights to go on when your system detects motion or when your smart locks open. Also, use a garage door smart light with your system so that you never forget to turn it off.

To get started, just connect your system or cameras to your compatible smart home devices. Blue systems work with Google Home, Amazon Alexa, IFTTT or connect with Z-Wave Plus devices. Learn more about using smart lights and devices with your system or cameras in our Support Center.

Recycling tips

How on Earth do you recycle that?

Recycling is easy, right? It is, most of the time. But what about when it comes to batteries or old electronics—like security devices, for example? When it comes time to dispose of these items, we encourage you to look up your local waste and recycling laws. Much like cell phones, these items shouldn’t be disposed of with regular household waste or recycling.

In the spirit of National Recycling Day on November 15, here’s a helpful tip: To find a nearby battery recycling drop-off point, visit https://www.call2recycle.org/ and, in the “Find a drop-off location” field, enter your ZIP Code. Sometimes it’s as easy as dropping the item at a participating home improvement store in your neighborhood.
