The number of robberies and burglaries in America is quite astonishing. Did you know that in the year 2015, there was a property crime that took place every 3.9 seconds? In fact, there were nearly eight million property crimes in 2015. The amount of property stolen was worth a whopping $12.4 billion. Fortunately, there are ways to protect yourself from break-ins and robberies and it starts with having a home security system installed. For now, let’s take a look at ADT security systems, including the various packages that you can choose from.


Knowing What To Consider When Buying a Home Security System

“Home security and alarm maker ADT, founded in 1874 as a telegraph company, announced Tuesday (February 16, 2016) that it was getting bought for about $7 billion…Apollo said the combined company will primarily use the more well-known ADT brand name.”

As you can see, the ADT brand has been around for a long time. The success of the company has primarily been based on its ability to provide superior home security services. When you start shopping for an ADT home security system, there are several factors that you will want to take into consideration. For starters, are you looking for a home security system that includes cameras, motion sensors, and an alarm system? Or do you prefer a system that simply includes an alarm? How good is ADT security customer service? Your preferences and needs will determine which system is best for you. Here is a close look at the types of ADT systems there are and tips for choosing the best one for your home.

Weighing Your Options

When weighing your options, you first need to start by looking at the different features offered by ADT. The company offers the following features, but it’s important to remember that not all packages come with each feature. When choosing a security package, you will want to make sure you pick one that has the features you are in need of.

  • 24/7 monitoring
  • Wireless security
  • Remote control
  • Home automation
  • Surveillance cameras
  • Professional installation
  • Mobile alerts
  • Medical products
  • Hardwired security

As you start weighing your options, you need to take into account whether you already have security equipment. If so, you can take comfort in knowing that ADT will provide monitoring services for your equipment for as little as $19.99 a month. If you need security equipment, though, you can purchase new equipment from ADT and you will have five different monitoring packages to choose from. Pricing for these packages as of April 2018 ranges from $36.99 to $52.99 a month.

With this package, you will also have to pay $125 in upfront costs. You will get a wireless keypad installed as well as four sensors that can be installed on windows, doors, or a combination of the two. Options that you can choose from on this package plan include any of the following:

  • Water detection
  • Temperature monitoring
