Security firm ADT unveiled a new range of smart products at CES. The company has also promised to integrate HomeKit with the new items in the near future.
HomeKit Support Coming Q2 2020
The company launched a new brand – Blue by ADT. It originally offered three standalone smart cameras, a WiFi extender and a doorbell chime. The products became available for pre-order on Monday. They will be shipped by the end of the month. The company also announced that it will launch a comprehensive security system, including a base, keyboard and sensors later this year. Blue by ADT smart cameras cost $ 199.99 each. The Blue by ADT WiFi Extender + Chime costs $ 49.99. Users benefit from 24 hours of free video storage.
Blue by ADT products will work with Apple HomeKit, as well as with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and IFTT. This means that they can interact with other smart security devices. However, the integration of HomeKit and Google Assistant will not be deployed until the next quarter.
The indoor and outdoor cameras have a field of view of 130 degrees, while the doorbell camera has a field of view of 180 degrees. Cameras record in 1080p and send alert notifications to a user’s phone, with a clip built into the notification to see if further action is required (via The edge). 60-day video storage plans start at $ 2.99 per camera, or $ 12.99 for unlimited cameras in one place
