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.

The life of our family at home being on film

I am great-full in so many ways for ADTs’ camera’s being available for us, as they are for my husband and I, right here in Scarsdale. As a mom, always on the move, busy doing something for my kids and the husssband, it gets pretty tuff to have eyes on our three kids, ALL the time. As always, I’m preoccupied with my day to day duties/chores and I can’t avoid the thought cross my mind that maybe I need to run down and check on them. Once upon a time, in the middle of something I’d been tryna finish for a couple days now and getting in the groove, would have to stop, only to be interrupted by a nervous/worrisome thought bout the kids, since, of course they were in the storage/playroom, adjacent the garage and of course I was on third floor, evidently put off once again what I was tryna finish. But no more putting off. Thanks to ADT, those fearful thoughts are not there and for that I will always be forever great full.
So after all that being said I can’t expect perfect. However if I had the ability to actually control the movement on each camera and pin point what I’m looking at/for, wooooo weeee, now that’s when I’d say we’d be talking serious business. But, ummm, who am I to say something’s not perfect? Lord knows I’m not. But who is? Right?
ADT - you guys rock!!!
Thanks a mill!!!!!!

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.
