How Do I Watch Video on My ADT Camera?

Are you wondering how to watch video on your ADT camera? Well, you’ve come to the right place. In this tutorial, we will guide you step-by-step on how to watch video on your ADT camera.

Step 1: Accessing Your ADT Camera

To access your ADT camera, you need to log in to the ADT Pulse app on your smartphone or tablet. If you don’t have the app installed, download it from your app store and install it. Once installed, open the app and log in with your credentials.


You must have an active monitoring plan with ADT to use the Pulse app.

Step 2: Navigating to Your Camera Feed

Once you’re logged in to the Pulse app, navigate to your camera feed by selecting “Cameras” from the bottom menu. You will see a list of all your cameras that are connected to your account.

Pro Tip:

You can sort the cameras by room or location for easier navigation.

Step 3: Watching Video on Your ADT Camera

To watch video on your ADT camera, simply select the camera feed you want to view from the list. The live stream of that camera will appear on your screen. You can also control pan/tilt functions by swiping across the screen.


If you want to view recorded footage instead of a live stream, select “Recordings” instead of “Cameras” in step 2 above.

Step 4: Adjusting Video Quality

If you’re experiencing buffering or slow performance while watching video on your ADT camera, you can adjust the video quality settings for smoother playback. To do this:

  • Select “Settings” from the bottom menu
  • Select “Video” from the list of options
  • Adjust the quality settings to your preference


Lower quality settings may result in a less clear image.


Watching video on your ADT camera is easy and convenient with the ADT Pulse app. By following these simple steps, you can access and view your camera feed from anywhere at any time. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to ADT support for assistance.
