What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Limited smart home automations: While it offers some level of home automation, the ADT Self Setup doesn’t offer as many automation features as the likes of Abode, another DIY-installed smart security system.
  • Somewhat pricey monitoring costs: At more than $30 per month if you have cameras, ADT Self Setup is pricier than SimpliSafe and other affordable DIY brands.
  • Limited third-party product integrations: As of the moment, the ADT Self Setup doesn’t integrate with as many third-party smart home products as the professionally installed ADT system.

Bottom Line

With an easy self-setup process, an expertly designed smart home security app, and ADT’s renowned professional monitoring service, ADT Self Setup is one of the best DIY security systems yet. Plus, it works seamlessly with cameras from Google Nest, some of the smartest cameras around, for all-around home security.
