ADT already dipped its toe in the home automation waters, but the company plans to make an even bigger splash in the months to come. It announced today that it'll leverage tech from LG and Nest to add to its connected home tool set. First, ADT and LG are working on a so-called all-in-one "Smart Security" device (pictured above) that'll offer not only video monitoring, but it will act as a hub for connecting other gadgets as well. As you might expect, this means you'll be able to control the whole lot from ADT's app; however, the device isn't schedule to launch until this fall.

Nest is getting in on the action too, so ADT's Pulse platform -- which also features a companion app -- adds to its list of supported tech that already includes IF (IFTTT), Ford Sync, Life360 and more. A new version of Pulse is slated to arrive this summer too, delivering both voice authentication and controls amongst a slew of updates. When all of those items do arrive, ADT stands to give the likes of Xfinity Home and others a run for their money.
