Why Should I Choose ADT Monitoring?
There are many home security providers out there, but none of them have such a long history of operation nor the equipment and services that ADT monitoring provides. ADT monitoring started over 140 years ago, in 1874, as the American District Telegraph Company. It all began in Baltimore, MD, where the company quickly became the leader in communications technology.
Fast-forward to 2001, and ADT monitoring’s advanced technology introduced the first web-enabled home security center. And the technology continues to advance. Today, ADT monitoring has over 6.4 million customers—both residential and business based.
There are numerous reasons why so many people are choosing ADT monitoring for their security protection needs. Here are several:
1. Six Monitoring Centers to Provide Continuous Protection
You never know when an emergency will occur—that’s why you have to be ready for anything that can potentially happen. ADT monitoring provides monitoring protection 24 hours a day; 7 days a week against burglaries, floods, fires and carbon monoxide. Keep in mind that a home burglary happens somewhere in the U.S. every 14 seconds; however, homes with a security system are three times less likely to be burglarized.
There is also a home fire every 86 seconds, which results in injuries and potential deaths. In 2015, reports by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) show that there were a total of 501,500 structural fires, which resulted in $10.3 billion in property damage.
Were something to happen to your home, ADT monitoring has you covered. There are six monitoring centers strategically located throughout the country to provide you with continuous protection. If your alarm is ever triggered, the signal is sent to one of the monitoring centers where a professional security representative will quickly contact your local police, fire department or EMT. They are trained to handle any type of situation; after all, every second counts in the event of a potential crisis.
2. Warranties and Guarantees
ADT monitoring believes in the effectiveness of its security equipment and the exceptional support of its monitoring professionals. Because of that, there are four different warranties and guarantees provided. These include:
Homeowner’s Insurance Certificate
This certificate can save you up to 20 percent on your homeowner’s insurance premium. All that’s needed is an ADT home monitoring system.
ADT Money-Back Service Guarantee
This guarantee gives you 60-days to try out the system. If you aren’t satisfied with it, you can return it and receive your money back. Most other providers only give a 30-day trial period.
Mover’s Package Guarantee
If you’ve been with ADT monitoring for at least 24-months or were a former customer for that same duration, you are eligible for a mover’s package guarantee. This let’s you receive a new monitoring system for free when you move. You can also receive discounts for any additional equipment that you’d like added on.
Theft Protection Guarantee
In the rare instance that your home is burglarized while the alarm system is armed, you can receive up to $500 of your insurance deductible. This emphasizes how much ADT monitoring stands behind its ability to protect your home.
3. Provide Four Different Monitoring Packages
Every home has different monitoring needs, which is why there are four different monitoring packages to choose from. These include:
4. Capability to Remotely Monitor and Control from Anywhere
Both ADT Pulse and ADT Pulse + Video provides the ability to remotely monitor and control your security system from anywhere— using your smartphone, tablet or computer. All you need is an Internet connection. With it you can remotely arm/disarm the alarm, lock/unlock doors, manage appliances and more. ADT Pulse + Video enables all that with an additional remote video feature.
