ADT Takes the Reins as North Pole Security Provider of “Adventure to Santa” Interactive Holiday Experience

Company announces sponsorship of General Growth Properties’ new holiday experience and outfits Santa’s house with the latest ADT Pulse smart home technology

BOCA RATON, Fla.--()--Move over elves, Santa is bringing in the security professionals to help protect the North Pole this holiday season. Today, ADT (NYSE:ADT), a leading provider of home security and automation solutions, announced its sponsorship of Adventure to Santa, a reimagined Santa Claus experience, which debuts at five GGP locations this holiday season.

Adventure to Santa is a DreamWorks DreamPlace that takes guests on an interactive journey with Shrek and friends. This first-of-its-kind, 2,000-square-foot cottage provides families a magical experience, complete with personal tour guides, cutting-edge technology, interactive games and an unforgettable visit with Santa Claus.

In today’s connected world, even Santa and his elves could use an extra set of hands. ADT has the season covered with ADT Pulse®, helping Santa monitor and control his home 24/7 from almost anywhere, with real-time video and event-triggered notifications. Santa can also turn on the holiday lights, unlock doors for guests, set the temperature for a cozy night in by the fireplace, or even automate his hot chocolate machine.

“We are delighted to help make Santa’s home smarter and safer this holiday season with features that bring peace of mind. With ADT Pulse®, families can celebrate the holidays worry-free, whether they are cooking and entertaining for a home full of guests or traveling hundreds of miles away,” said Jerri DeVard, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for ADT. “We are thrilled to be partnering with GGP to showcase how ADT can help protect what matters most this holiday season.”
