Smart Home Innovator Roost® Partners With Home Security Leader ADT to Provide Professional Monitoring Option

Unique Roost Smart Battery to Offer ADT Canopy, 24/7 Live Monitoring and Support

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2016) - Roost, an innovator in smart home technology, today announced a new partnership with ADT (NYSE: ADT), a leading provider of security and automation solutions for homes and businesses, with its participation in ADT Canopy, the company's new Security-as-a-Service solution. New and existing Roost Smart Battery owners will now have the option to be secured through ADT Canopy, which provides 24/7 professional monitoring and live support to aid in nearly any emergency -- from intrusions or fires, to unsafe situations outside of the home.

In addition to receiving direct alert notifications when your smoke alarm triggers, Roost and ADT will offer the ability to have your Roost-enabled smoke and CO alarms monitored by ADT, helping improve home safety and peace-of-mind. A simple option from the Roost mobile app (available for both iOS and Android smartphones) enables a quick sign-up with ADT Canopy and will be available for a low monthly fee with no fixed contracts. With the Roost - ADT Canopy option, there is no need to worry when you are on vacation or away from home. ADT will respond to an alarm with both telephone verification to the home owner as well as contact emergency services, if needed. ADT Canopy is the latest Smart Security innovation to not only secure and connect the modern home or business, but also the connected, on-the-go consumer. The ADT Canopy for Roost option will be available this spring in the U.S.

"Roost is excited to partner with ADT and to have the unique Roost Smart Battery part of the stellar ADT Canopy solution," said Roel Peeters, Roost CEO and co-founder. "As the smart home continues to evolve, ADT Canopy offers consumers an enhanced and affordable way to monitor their home, while the Roost Smart battery is the ideal solution for consumers to increase their sense of home safety and security."

"ADT is pleased to partner with Roost for the launch of our ADT Canopy solution," said ADT Chief Innovation Officer Arthur Orduña. "With consumers always on-the-go it is critical that they have access to innovative home security and safety products that can monitor and help to protect their homes and possessions. The Roost Smart Battery is exactly the type of innovative product that helps to solve a real-word problem and is a perfect complement to ADT Canopy."
