ADT And Life360 Partner To Expand Out-of-Home Protection, Networking And Automation To Deliver Seamless, Personal Security Via Mobile

Leading security and home automation provider ADT (NYSE:ADT) today announced a partnership with Life360, a leader in location-based services and family networking technology. The partnership will provide a valuable lead generation source for ADT and enable the development of innovative, co-branded mobile security applications to provide greater safety and security services to families. As part of the agreement, ADT is taking a minority ownership stake in the company through a $25 million investment, leading a $50 million Series C financing for Life360. The investment forges a mutually beneficial bond for the two companies to work together to advance personal security solutions available to the more than 33 million families who use Life360.

“We’ve expanded beyond helping protect and connect homes and businesses,” said Arthur Orduña, senior vice president and chief innovation officer for ADT. “Today, ADT provides security and monitoring solutions for families wherever they are. This partnership with Life360 fits within our innovation strategy to reinvent the idea of ‘security’ for our increasingly mobile lifestyles. It’s a perfect pairing as ADT and Life360 are both leaders in their categories that share a very similar vision and mission – to provide peace of mind to families.”

One planned development from the partnership is a new mobile application that will integrate features from ADT Chaperone, an existing ‘on-the-go’ personal security offering from ADT. The upcoming mobile application from ADT and Life360 will provide direct access to ADT’s 24/7 monitoring centers that can connect users to police, fire and emergency medical responders. “Soon every family will be able to use the app to meet their unique needs, whether it’s providing a chaperone for a child walking home from school and verifying they reached their destination, or knowing to arm the home’s security system when the house is vacant,” added Orduña.

By leveraging the best of ADT and Life360 technologies, users will feel relaxed knowing their families can check in with the touch of a button, rather than having to make a call, or take a break to contact their loved ones. Users will not only have greater peace of mind while on the go, but also gain the added convenience of home automation, including control of lights, door locks and more, directly from their mobile phone.
