When we installed our system, we added a new feature to automate the garage doors this was brand new and NOT using any of the old equipment left by the prior homeowners. After about 3 months, one of the garage doors went “offline” and couldn’t be reset. The technician that was sent out replaced the associated equipment, and iit started working again. A few weeks later, the second garage door went offline and couldn’t be reset. This time, the technician that was sent out informed me that my garage door opener brand is incompatible with ADT equipment and will continue to short circuit and burn out as a result. There was no recommended fix for this problem, and that ADT only learned of this issue about a year ago. However, this equipment had been installed only a 3 or 4 months prior, so I do not understand why ADT would have allowed this installation if they knew about this issue. Nobody has been able to explain why they moved forward with the installation, so my conclusion is that it resulted from ADT’s inability to communicate with their sales force and technicians keep in mind that the technician that came out to service garage door 1 wasn’t aware of this situation, while the technician that serviced garage door 2 DID know. After many hours spent trying to contact the right people within ADT to solve this problem, one of the customer service supervisors provided me with a statement credit and indicated that the manager at the local ADT office advised me to purchase a particular type of garage door opener at my own expense, which should then work with ADT equipment. When I attempted to directly contact this local office manager in order to determine the exact equipment model to purchase, I left three voicemails, none of which were returned. I exchanged an email with someone at ADT corporate, presumably about the frustrating situation, but when I inquired about HOW to get the local office manager to call me back, she also stopped responding I tried sending the email twice.

Lifewire reviewers suggest purchasing this camera as a budget friendly alternative to getting a security camera with audio.

In our detection tests, the First Alert Onelink AC10 500 did well but wasn't able to match the Nest Protect in effectiveness. Read the full reviewAsante$133. 71 View at The Home Depot$141. 99View at Newegg$149. 95View at Dell?Comes in a two packShort warrantyThe Asante Smoke Detector kit comes with two smoke detectors, making it one of the more affordable smart smoke detectors available. However, its lackluster performance in our detection tests and lack of carbon monoxide detection keep it from being the best. Installing this device was frustrating and took over an hour, longer than reasonable for a smart home device, but in the end, you have a functional and convenient system – especially if you buy other smart home devices made by Asante. Unfortunately, you can’t use Asante smoke detectors with any third party smart home systems. The warranty on this smoke detector is only one year with a detector lifetime of five years, both of which are the shortest in our comparison. Despite its flaws, the Asante Smoke Detector Kit is a decent solution for monitoring your home for fire.
