Design the ADT Security System That Best Meets Your Needs

Posted on

In today’s world, there is no such thing as being too safe. When protecting your home, your valuables, and your loved ones, ADT security systems are one of the many choices you can make for your home or business alarm system needs. An ADT security system is a customizable home or business protection system, and offers various options for customers based on their greatest security concerns. Having a general understanding of the options available for your security system can be helpful before you contact the company about their service.

Basic Components
All systems come with a control panel and touch pad. Additionally, the system is made up of window and door monitors, motion detectors, and an indoor sounder/ alarm. All monitors and motion sensors can be controlled wirelessly, or hardwired, depending on the coverage plan you choose.

Fire Protection
ADT security systems offer an additional option of fire protection. When this plan is selected, the company includes smoke detectors in your package. If a fire is detected, ADT will contact your local fire department on your behalf. If you decide to take your fire protection plan an additional step, ADT offers the option to also add cellular phone backup to your plan. Cellular phone backup removes the concern that your ADT system may be destroyed in a fire, as you can contact the company’s monitoring center via your cell phone, the same way you would on your control panel/ touch pad.

ADT Pulse
The ADT Pulse upgrade allows customers to control their alarm system, thermostat, security cameras, lights and more through their mobile phone, laptop or tablet. The program also allows users to lock and unlock their doors remotely, as well as a variety of other convenient controls.

Additional Add-Ons
There are many other upgrade options for your ADT system. Customers can customize their security plan with add-ons such as additional window and door monitors, glass-break sensors, flood sensors, carbon monoxide detectors and more. Additionally, ADT offers window and yard signs, allowing burglars and intruders to know immediately that your home is being monitored.
