Incandescent lights should be turned off whenever they are not needed, as 90% of the energy they use produces heat rather than light.

Like a power strip, smart plugs plug into wall outlets and control the flow of power to other devices. But they go one step further—they connect to your home internet network so you can manage your plugged-in devices remotely.
Most people use smart plugs to control lamps and small appliances in their home. With control from virtually anywhere, you can easily save power by turning off lights you forgot about—or leave them on so sketchy opportunists think you’re cozied up at home when you’re actually working late.

When you choose an ADT smart plug, it integrates with your entire ADT smart security system via the platform ADT Command. Formerly called ADT Pulse, ADT Command lets you control your connected security and home automation devices via the Command Panel or the ADT Control mobile app. With centralized control, you can make convenient choices like these:
In addition to controlling the flow of electricity from wall outlets, smart plugs use wireless internet technology to connect to your ADT-monitored system. Some smart plugs use Wi-Fi only, but Z-Wave smart plugs from ADT make home automation more powerful and flexible:
Smart plugs integrate with Amazon® Alexa or other home assistants, allowing you to turn lights and small appliances on and off via voice command.
Their unique design allows smart plugs to go into one outlet without blocking other nearby outlets, saving you space—and the need for power strips and extension cords.
Smart plugs work with LED, CFL, halogen, and incandescent bulbs, as well as small appliances, to give you better control and save energy.
Dual-direction connectivity enables better communication with devices, ensuring that your plugs operate reliably in the home.
Installers are available to get your smart plugs and outlets set up for your convenience—you won’t have to worry about a thing.
Set recurring events for lights to turn on and off (or dim) at specific times of day for energy savings.

What are some examples of smart plug uses?
Smart plugs work best with plug-in lights with bulbs including, but not limited to, LED, CFL, halogen, and incandescent.
Smart plugs can also support small appliances like fans, hair styling tools, or even small air conditioners. Virtually any plug-in device works if it (a) won’t overload the circuit (about 1,500 watts max) while in use and (b) doesn’t need presets to function well, since shutting off power resets those (think alarm clocks).
Does ADT offer an outdoor smart plug?
No, ADT smart plugs are made for indoor use only. To use a smart plug outdoors, you need one made with water- and dustproofing.
How do I set up my smart plug?
First, insert your smart plug into an outlet. Then plug your lamp or small appliance into your smart plug. To sync the plug with your phone, open the ADT Control app, hit “Add Device,” and follow the prompts.
If you don’t want to set up your smart plug yourself, one of our technicians can do it during installation.
