SCE, ADT partner for interactive home energy management


In an interesting parternship, ADT and Southern California Edison (SCE) are providing SCE customers with energy management and reporting capabilities through ADT Pulse, an interactive home management platform that allows customers to arm and disarm their security systems, control thermostats, turn small appliances and lights on and off, access real-time video, and lock and unlock doors.

ADT Pulse can connect to SCE customers' Edison SmartConnect meters to show home energy consumption, historical energy usage information, daily energy bill estimates and energy savings alerts.

 "In a more connected world, there is a greater need for collaboration to deliver additional value to customers," said Erwin Furukawa, senior vice president of customer service at SCE. "Edison SmartConnect meters and ADT Pulse allow people to more easily manage their lives."

SCE is offering rebates and incentives for those customers purchasing ADT Pulse.
