ADT Security has been around since the early 1900’s and is by far the largest security company in the country. It is so popular that ADT Home Security has become a household name. ADT has achieved worldwide recognition through its innovative and reliable security solutions for over 100 years. Most people are familiar with the blue sign that ADT uses have their yard and windows. It lets intruders know that this house is being monitored by the most trusted and largest security company in America. ADT offers industrial strength protection for residential and business properties. The products that ADT uses are never low-end; they are state of the art and always on the cutting edge of technology. ADT uses wired and wireless options in its security solutions.
Most people consider their in-home systems one the easiest to use on the market. Basic installation includes a touch pad, with two door or window contracts, a motions detector, and a wireless remote. Technological advances have helped ADT offer an entirely wireless system that does not need to be attached to a landline. This is especially useful because many people are opting out of landlines and exclusively relying on cell phones.
Besides protecting your property from burglary, ADT Home Security can monitor fire, carbon monoxide, and other emergencies that arise. You may even opt for flood, electricity, and temperature monitoring for when you are away for long periods of time. You can even lower the temperature in the house during the day, and have it warming up for you on your way home from work or other outing. This not only lowers energy costs, it usually saves the consumer up to 20% on his or her home insurance.
The key feature of ADT Home Security is the personal emergency response system. This is especially useful if there are elderly or persons with special needs in the home that feel more comfortable knowing that ADT Home Security can react if something happens. This gives loved ones and those at home peace of mind for a small price, because when seconds count, it is nice that someone is watching out for us.
Customer service is also a plus for ADT Home Security. Operators are helpful and friendly and willing to help you with any questions or concerns you may have about your system. ADT offers help and troubleshooting on their online site as well, making help extremely accessible in stressful situations.
