Privacy Rating
ADT-Indoor-Camera-1  - Product Header Image

The ADT Indoor Camera is not advisable for privacy-minded individuals. While it has a solid encryption, its surveillance capability is beyond what most monitored security cameras have. It logs app and camera footage, mic audio, and location data. ADT also collects a ton of data about its users, including Social Security information which you can’t delete from their database unless you’re a California resident.
