ADT At Risk With Alarm.com, Comcast, Icontrol Deal

By Brian Rhodes, Published Jun 24, 2016, 10:30am EDT (Info+)

One of ADT's direct competitors has purchased a core piece of the company's most popular offerings. In a joint deal, Alarm.com and Comcast have divided up alarms technology company Icontrol Networks, best known for products like, ADT Pulse, Comcast Xfinity, and the Piper DIY alarm system.

While the total purchase price is more than $140 million, the impact could be even greater, leaving several big incumbents scrambling for replacement offerings.  We cover the deal and the potential changes to the alarms market in this note.
