Summary

Google says the two companies will work together to "create the next generation of the helpful home," while ADT says the deal "will combine Nest's award-winning hardware and services, powered by Google's machine-learning technology, with ADT's installation, service and professional monitoring." A site detailing the collaboration is up at adt.com/google.Google and ADT have both been working toward smart home security solutions over the years. ADT doesn't have an in-house solution for smart home automation like voice commands and smart speakers, but ADT devices worked with Z-Wave, Google Assistant, or Amazon Alexa devices.Merging the Google and ADT product lines seems to mean Nest hardware with ADT monitoring and installation. That means Google Home speakers, Google Wi-Fi, and Chromecast will eventually all live under the Google Nest sub-brand, e.g., "Google Home" is now the "Google Nest Home."While the deal will eventually see ADT exclusively install Google hardware, but getting there will take some time.
