What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Pricey monitoring fees: Adding security cameras to your ADT system will increase your monthly monitoring fee to up to $60 per month to cover features like cloud recording.
  • No local recording: All ADT cameras are designed to store videos in the cloud, with zero options for local recording.
  • Limited options: While adding Google Nest Cams expand the options to a total of five cameras, ADT still doesn’t offer as many camera options as brands like Ring.

Bottom Line

With a reliable home security system already in its arsenal, ADT widens the scope of its protection through ADT and Google Nest security cameras. These cameras provide top features, but expect to pay a premium price for the equipment and for professional monitoring.
