Python interface for ADT Pulse security systems

Project description

pyadtpulse - Python interface for ADT Pulse

Python client interface to the ADT Pulse security system.

License Donate

While two or three Python clients to ADT Pulse existed, they generally only provided arm/disarm support and none provided support for ADT Pulse when multiple sites existed under a single account. This attempts to provide APIs to both all the zones (motion sensors, door sensors, etc) as well as arming and disarming individual sites.

NOTE: Since this interacts with the unofficial ADT Pulse AJAX web service, the behavior is subject to change by ADT without notice.


pip3 install pyadtpulse


Since ADT Pulse automatically logs out other sessions accessing the same account, a best practice is to create a new username/password combination for each client accessing ADT Pulse.

Additionally, since pyadtpulse currently does not support multiple sites (premises/locations), a simple approach is to create a separate username/password for each site and configured such that the username only has access to ONE site. This ensures that clients are always interacting with that one site (and not accidentally with another site location).


  • any changes to the name/count of sites are not automatically updated for existing site objects


adt = PyADTPulse(username, password)

for site in adt.sites:


See for a working example.
