What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Professional installation only: Although this meant less work for us, it also meant we had to pay a fee to get our security system installed.
  • Three-year contracts: Unfortunately, we had no choice but to sign a binding, three-year contract rather than a flexible monthly contract, locking us into the service, but that's normal with traditional alarm companies like ADT.
  • Monthly fees aren't lowest-price available: The monthly fees scale with your security system, so if you have a large home or if you get a smart home and video monitoring equipment, expect to pay a higher monthly fee.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a security system that's trustworthy, ADT is your best bet. With over 140 years in business, ADT offers professional monitoring that'll give you and your family peace of mind plus protection.
