ADT Blue Outdoor Camera Privacy Report

Privacy Rating
Blue by ADT Outdoor Camera  - Product Header Image

The ADT Blue Outdoor Camera offers a good blend of security and privacy through the use of privacy zones, which enables us to create surveillance-free zones within the camera’s field of vision. Sadly, the ADT Blue Outdoor Camera lost points due to the amount of data it collects from its users, including personal information like social security numbers and dates of birth. We’re also not thrilled that it logs video footage, audio recordings, and location information.
