In today’s day and age, it can be very reassuring to have a home security system that protects your home even while you’re away. ADT has been an industry leader in home security for many decades, and with a smartphone, you can now grant access to your home to all of your family members and guests. Not all apps excel at having multiple members controlling devices, though. With that said, you may be wondering if multiple users can use the ADT app.

You can add as many users as you would like to your ADT Control app. The ADT Control app allows you to see who has access to your home security systems, as well as add or remove users as needed.

This means that anyone else who might need access to your ADT security system can be added easily and removed just as quickly when they no longer need access. Keep reading to learn more about the ADT Control app and how to add users to the app.

Adding Users Through the ADT Control Portal

The ADT Control Portal is a website that gives you access to all of the same features of the ADT app and more.
