ADC-T2000 and ADC-T3000 Thermostats Work with Alarm.com
In this video, Michael from Alarm Grid explains how both the Alarm.com ADC-T2000 and ADC-T3000 Thermostats will work with the Alarm.com service. The Alarm.com ADC-T2000 and ADC-T3000 are both Z-Wave Plus thermostats. When you pair either one with a security system that has been set up with the Alarm.com service, the unit will subsequently appear on the user's Alarm.com account the next time that the system syncs with Alarm.com.
Both the ADC-T2000 and the ADC-T3000 are used in the same manner. They are designed to replace a user's existing thermostat and provide a way to integrate the connected HVAC with a smart interactive platform like Alarm.com. This will allow the end user to control the thermostat remotely by accessing that platform. In the case of the ADC-T2000 and ADC-T3000, they pair using the same process as any other Z-Wave device. You need to pair the thermostat with your Alarm.com Security System so that it is pushed over to your Alarm.com account.
Once the thermostat is made available on Alarm.com, several things happen. First, you can then access Alarm.com to control the thermostat. This is possible through the Alarm.com website or mobile app. The Alarm.com Mobile App is particularly useful, because it allows you to access the Alarm.com service from pretty much anywhere. All you have to do is open the app on your Android or iOS device, login using your credentials, and then navigate to the Automation section where you can control the thermostat alongside your other automation devices.
Another huge benefit of having the thermostat on Alarm.com is that you can have it activate automatically based on a schedule or with certain system events. This is made possible by building customized smart scenes in Alarm.com. By doing this, you can save money on energy bills and ensure that your HVAC system operates as efficiently as possible, all while keeping your home or office nice and comfortable for everyday living.
hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be answering the question of whether or not you can add your alarm.com adct2000 or alarm.com adct3000 thermostat to your alarm.com account and the answer is yes you can add these thermostats to your alarm.com account that includes both the adc t2000 and the adc adct-3000 thermostats both of these thermostats are z-wave plus devices so to add them to your alarm.com account you just pair them with your security system your alarm.com security system as a z-wave device and then like any other zebra device it'll show up on alarm.com so that way you can control it remotely through the alarm.com website alarm.com mobile app you can include it with smart scenes so you'll have alarm.com for accessing these thermostats whether you're in your home office and you want to do it from your computer or you're away from home um or away from your office and you pull up your smartphone and the alarm.com mobile app and you can control the thermostats and as these are alarm.com manufactured devices they have a pretty nice integration with alarm.com they tend to make that a pretty seamless transition um but what you need to do is you need to pair these devices with um your alarm.com security system today i'll be showing you on the qolsys iq panel 2 plus that's a popular alarm.com security system but keep in mind this will work whether you're using a gc3e a gc2e if you're using a dsc power series neo that's set up alarm.com but you'll follow the specific process for that panel to pair the z-wave advice so understand your panel learn how z-wave devices are paired and pair the device um so that way it can show up on alarm.com but today i'll be showing you with the um the iq panel two plus um so once you have it paired then it will you know fetch the data and it'll appear on alarm.com so um we're working with the adct2000 today the t3000 might follow a bit of a different process but you're basically just going to be pairing it with your alarm.com security system so that way you can have it on your account so uh just to show you how to do this with the adct 2000 i'm going to put the qolsys into its z-wave pairing mode this is a very smart device actually you don't have to do an exclusion process first like you would for many devices we can just go ahead and pair it right away so what we're going to do we're going to start from the main screen of the qolsys iq panel 2 plus we're going to press the small gray bar at the top we're going to choose settings and we're going to choose advanced settings and then we're going to enter in our installer code which ours is at the default of one one one one and we're gonna choose installation and we're gonna choose devices and we're gonna choose zebra devices and so we're at the zebra devices menu and we're going to add device right here and see there's nothing added right now and we're just going to include so that way it starts looking for a z-wave device to add what we want to do we're going to turn our attention to the thermostat now the adc t2000 first we want to just activate it so we get it to show up we get a nice little um how hot or cold it is in here right now i guess it's 65 degrees um so we're going to press and hold the bottom button until a radio symbol appears a little wi-fi symbol thing and it looks like it lost the connection here i want to make sure it's it's on battery power right now so if it loses some that then it will shut off but we have ours on we're gonna press and hold the bottom button until we get a symbol and we got that right there um so it's discovered the device and you see it's going to be a thermostat once it shows up on here again this is a z-wave plus thermostat um so and this is a z-wave plus compatible system if you have a classic z-wave system that doesn't do z-wave plus it'll still pair you just won't get the advantages of z-wave plus but that tangent aside uh we have our thermostat um settings here looks like it got on node id number seven uh it's a type is the thermostat which is what we want and the name is thermostat we could change it i suppose if we want to give it a custom name or downstairs thermostat or hallway thermostat what have you but we'll just keep ours at thermostat and we're going to press add network successfully and you see that it has been added to the system and if this system were monitored and set up with alarm.com then it would get pushed over to alarm.com just like it would for any other z-wave device so then you'll be able to control it remotely include with smart scenes and do all of that fantastic stuff the reason you've shelled out your money on your fancy alarm.com thermostat okay so now i want to show you how you would access the thermostat from alarm.com um so i'm going to show you the alarm grid demo account that you can use whether you're monitored by alarmgrid or not so we're going to enter in the username which it's an email address it's a g cust short for alarmgrid customer um at alarmgrid.com so ag cust alarm grid dot com and then for the password the password is case sensitive so we're gonna do a lowercase m and then we'll do six 2 capital z i g capital u capital e f and q and then we can log in and we're not going to save the password now but now we're into um the alarmgrid demo account for alarm.com and so we're going to choose the um the upper the upper left corner button here the menu button and we're going to choose thermostats and then this is where the thermostat would be in this case it's called living room thermostat um if you named it differently it would obviously be a different name and the location might be different depending on whether you're using um android ios or whether you're using the alarm.com website this is the mobile app and this is the android version so if you are using a different version then keep that in mind but that's how you would access the thermostat from alarm.com so that answers the question of whether or not you can pair your adct2000 or your adc 3000 with alarm.com yes you can pair these alarm.com thermostats with alarm.com as a z-wave device so if you have any questions about the alarm.com adc t2000 the alarm.com adc t3000 the qolsys iq panel 2 plus alarm.com monitoring services send an email to support alarmgrid.com if you
