Set Up ADT Security Hub

Have you ever been home alone and gotten that eerie feeling someone is lurking outside your window? Well, with your ADT Security Hub, you can stop threats in their tracks by connecting smart detectors, sensors, and cameras for 24/7 monitoring of your home. Welcome to total peace of mind, at your fingertips.

Set Up ADT Security Hub

Do not insert sharp objects into any holes on the back of the panel. Doing so could severely damage the backup battery.

Think of your ADT Security Hub like the brain of your entire home security system. Let’s get set up so it can start guarding your castle.

  1. Locate an area of your home with good Wi-Fi and cellular coverage to place the ADT Security Hub.

    Avoid placing it in direct sunlight and heat sources, near doors or windows where it can be easily viewed, or in places that can be reached by small children.

  2. Tighten the mounting plate screw to hold the mounting plate in place.

  3. Attach the desk mount to the mounting plate.

    • The desk mount can be installed upside down for the Panel to lean back further for easy viewing.
    • You can also mount the ADT Security Hub flat on a wall using two screws that fit in the top of the panel (Screws are not provided).

  4. Connect the Power Receptacle to the Power Connector.

    Make sure the outlet is not controlled by a switch that could accidentally cut the power.

  5. For compliance with ANSI/NFPA 70 National Electric Code, install the power plug retaining bracket.

    • Use the pre-applied adhesive tape to attach the retaining bracket to the wall outlet and then secure the bracket to the wall using the fastening screw.

    • Spread the edges of the bracket apart and insert the power plug into the power outlet. Thread the zip ties through the slots and fasten them to secure the power plug.

  6. Follow the on-screen instructions on the ADT Security Hub to connect to your Wi-Fi network.

  7. Download the SmartThings app for Android or iOS, create an account for your home, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete setup.

    You will be prompted to enter an activation code displayed on the ADT Security Hub into the SmartThings app.
