Used to love it... update is broken


This app sold me on ADT. The ability to arm/disarm on the go was worth the upcharge. The last app had some issues on my wife's phone (6splus) but mine worked perfectly (7plus). The new one didn't want to connect yesterday after I downloaded it... not a huge deal.. thought it was maintenance..... connected this morning and looked promising for the new layout... closed it... ever since it won't load. Gets to the splash screen and crashes shortly after. I'm giving them a few hours until we leave for the grocery store and if it's not working I'm demanding a refund for the app fee

Update: They've updated the app several times since I put this review in.... app is still broken. Less than 10% of the time I need to use it I can. I've tried all of their steps to fix it. Signing in using my password rather than my thumbprint has helped some, but sometimes the app fails to load completely. I've been back and fourth with their customer service several times and they refuse to offer me any credit and only one has offered to remove the charges for the app but that also would take away the access through the website as well.

Someone at apple needs to take this piece of garbage down.

09/27 UPDATE - Completely useless


UPDATE: the update that ADT recently pushed has been like night and day. I have had close to 100% consistency on using the app (either through wifi or cell service). I'm SO extremely grateful they made the adjustment that I'm sure many people desperately needed. I'm giving 4 stars because I still have issues with the actual system, but the app has been great so far!

If I had known of the inadequacy of this app while subscribing to their service, I would have gone with a different provider. This app will freeze my phone constantly, regardless of if it actually connects to my system or not. It almost never works, which have caused me to set off my alarm many times just trying to enter my house. I have spent countless hours sitting in front of my house, either trying to get in, or trying to set my system to leave. Absolutely ridiculous, useless and frustrating, to say the least. Do yourself a favor and find an alternative, or wait for them to fix this stupid remote access.



Not that this platform is stable enough for it, but you should also have 🍎WATCH access. For the extra cost on your plan this app should be far more reliable and interactive. More often than not It takes far too long to connect to my system. And I often get an error message when I try to arm the system leaving me frustrated and having to remember to try again in a few minutes making a task that should be convenient, inconvenient! On the rare occasion that the app loads smoothly it’s actually easy and fast to use. Checking zones and arming with ease and having the option to bypass on the fly is clutch... when it works. Now we just need to get it working like that every time. Then think about integrating the 🍎watch. Would love to be able to check zones arm/disarm with the same zone bypass options and view cams. I know I’m asking for a lot but you also require quite the premium cost on your equipment and service as well. So I think it’s a fare ask. Hopefully someone that matters actually gets eyes on this and takes note lol
