ADT today announced, serveral new HomeKit enabled security devices. They include a indoor camera, outdoor camera video doorbell, and Wi-Fi range extender that doubles as a doorbell chime. However, HomeKit support will not be added to the doorbell until quarter 2 2020.
The previously leaked ADT video doorbell will support 1080p recording, a 180-degree field of view, night vision, custom motion detection zones. It will sport two-way talk and a water-resistant design.
The doorbell will receive HomeKit support that will allow users to receive an instant notification when someone rings the doorbell.
