There are more than 4,300 burglaries that occur each day in the United States. This equals out to nearly 1.6 million burglaries each year. Fortunately, if you have a home security system installed, your home is less likely to get broken into. And in the event that it does get broken into, a home security system will help you identify the intruder as well as provide valuable evidence to be used during the prosecution of the perpetrator.


Did you know that home security comes in all shapes and sizes? Something as simple as a free ADT sticker on your door is an ineffective form of home security, even if you don’t have an actual system installed on your property. For now, though, let’s take a quick look at ADT home security, including three facts you need to know.

ADT is in over 10,000 homes every day with certified technicians.  We are managing over 100,000 phone calls and alarms every day, 24/7/365 – and we recently removed our Auto Attendant, which means when those people call they get a live person answering the phone vs. having to push buttons or talk to a robot.  Regardless of how the technology evolves and integrates, people need and want people and ADT is delivering on that need in very compelling ways.

1) Benefits of ADT Home Security

Studies have shown that the benefits of ADT home security are plentiful . Having a simple ADT security sticker in your window or sign in your yard can deter thieves from breaking into your home. In fact, 90 percent of burglars admit that if a home has a security system sign or sticker on the property, they will look for another property to break into. Also beneficial of the ADT system is that the monitoring service will notify you if a break-in occurs; this is of the utmost importance because it can help prevent you from coming home from work or dinner while a burglary is taking place. Another notable benefit of the ADT system is that it can save you up to 20 percent on your homeowner’s insurance.

3) The Cost of ADT Home Security

The cost of an ADT home security system may surprise you. Known for being the most common security system in the United States, many people think that taking advantage of ADT services will be very costly.

There are three basic expenses that must be covered when opting for an ADT home security system:

  • Equipment
  • Subscription
  • Installation

You can ask for special deals on their services, but keep in mind they still might raise the rate after the deal expires. They might also have some pretty steep upfront costs, depending on what kind of equipment you need. They also don’t allow you to pay your bills on the ADT portal like protect america.
