Add and remove ADT devices with SmartThings

ADT Home Safety Expansion Pack

Prepare yourself for any unexpected disasters. When you connect ADT devices like detectors and alarms to SmartThings, your home will be protected from corner to corner. You can connect motion detectors, water leak sensors, and much more. You can also remove a device if you need to replace it or switch it to a new location.

Add a device and hub

Adding a new ADT device to your SmartThings app, like a sensor or alarm, will let you track your home’s security.

First, make sure you have the ADT Security Hub added to your SmartThings account. On your phone, navigate to and open SmartThings. Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap the Location drop-down menu to select the location where your ADT hub is saved. Tap Add (the plus sign), tap Device, and then tap the By brand tab. Tap ADT, and then tap ADT security devices. Tap your desired device to begin connecting it to the hub. Scan the QR code, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Once your device is connected, you can adjust the security settings if you'd like to move it to a different room or edit the alerts.

Remove a device

On your phone, navigate to and open the SmartThings app. Then, tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and tap the Location drop-down menu to the select the location where the ADT hub is saved.
