BOCA RATON, Fla.—ADT Pulse customers will now be able to lock or unlock doors in their home using tablets, smartphones or desktop computers, the company announced Feb. 20. The ADT Corp. is introducing remote door locks to the home automation solution, availing consumers of a “master key” from anywhere, the company said in a statement.

"Enabling our customers to control access to their home — from wherever they are, with the touch of a button — that's what remote door locks represent," Tony Wells, chief marketing officer for ADT, said in the statement. "They also show that we understand connectivity, mobility, and the 24/7 pace of today's digital world."

ADT spent more than a year testing the quality and speed of its remote door locks, which are supported by Kwikset, the statement said. The latest feature to ADT Pulse, remote door locking complements other features such as thermostat control, energy consumption management, and light controls, among other features.
