Why connect the ADT Keypad to the WiFi?
You may wonder what the purpose of having the ADT keypad connected to WiFi is.
The explanation is very simple. Here are the reasons.
- Alarm redundant communication;
- Faster response from the app commands;
- Automatic updates.
When you connect the ADT system to WiFi, the system has an alternative way (other than the LTE signal) to communicate to the ADT monitoring centers.
It is essential to have a faster response from your ADT command system, so why not have it connected to the WiFi and use the Internet to communicate?
