Protect America and ADT are two of the main home security companies in the industry today. While both companies offer quality security monitoring, they go about it differently. For example, Protect America offers DIY systems while all of ADT systems are professionally installed. The goal of this Protect America vs ADT review is to compare and contrast these two home security companies so that you will be able to choose the best provider for your home and family.

The Protect America Advantage vs ADT

Over the years, ADT has expanded considerably, buying up other security companies such as SecurityLink and Alarmguard. The fact is, ADT is growing just as fast as their negative reviewsProtect America has been protecting homes and families since 1992. Our service comes with great knowledge and skills on providing consumers with great home security information. The products we provide are easy to use and come with the support of our great customer service department. Our security systems are easy to install over the phone with one of our experienced technicians. The best part about DIY installation is that it is free!

Bad Rep?

Since going public, ADT has done nothing but increase rates, fees, and drive up subscription costs on existing customers in attempt to keep their profit. They have a much higher expectation to protect profit due to the pressure instigated by their shareholders. They are doing so at the expense of customer loss. Rate increases are a huge factor in customer cancellations. There are, however, companies that lock-in rates, like Protect America, guaranteeing you the same initial rate for the lifetime of your agreement.
