I talked with a representative about a home security system. As we talked she asked me questions regarding number of windows/doors etc. She told me we would get window/doors sensors (never actually told me how many my mistake for not asking), also told me it wasn't a problem to include an extra key fob and the really great news was we were going to have all this "free" money to purchase anything else we wanted off the service truck. Salesman and installer arrive and we find out that extra key fob was coming out of our "free" money the representative never ever mentioned this fact.
We’re big fans of mobile access because it’s what home security is for—knowing your home is safe at any time and doing something about it when it’s threatened. Most companies now allow you to control your system this way from a keychain remote controller, mobile device (iOS or Android mostly), or web-based app for ease of use and distant check-ins.
Because ADT uses individual retailers to sell its equipment and services, you never know exactly what your control panel (and other equipment) is going to look like until the installer knocks on your door. That means that if you like the ADT system at your brother’s house, there’s no guarantee that yours will look the same. This doesn’t impact how well an ADT security system protects your home, but it can be a bummer if you were expecting a particular panel and got something different.

Since buying this hub I am pretty happy with it. Still getting everything setup just the way I like it, but a lot less of a headache. I am having an issue with the battery being no good, but I opened a ticket for it and I am sure it's as easy as sending a new one out to replace it. It is a bit price, but I had ADT come out to give me a quote and just for the bear minimum it was about $1200. So, $400 is not too bad from that point of view and also no long-term contract. I can start and stop my monitoring at any time. I also got all of my sensors and motion detectors at 50% off during a sale so that was pretty good too.

You're bang on there, Ann. In times when the economy is not in the pink of its health, the incidents of burglaries and thefts have shoot up considerably in the country. I think people should start taking home security seriously and stop thinking that the chances of thieves breaking into their homes is negligible and as early as possible, should go with a good security company like ADT or Protect America, and secure their homes and future.

I signed a 3 year contract with ADT and while the did provide security services it was at a high cost. Apparently the original quoted price was a promotional price because every few months my bill went up and up and up. By the end of three years I was paying almost double the original price. There was nothing I could do because it was extremely expensive to break the contract. I have learned my lesson and wont do that again.
Their Pulse app control is what I like best. I'm sure there is better equipment out there but the app ties in nicely with everything. Can add multiple accounts, see a log history of when the alarm system was turned on and off and by who. Can take a peek at the cameras during work to ease my mind that nothing is going on at home that I should be aware of. Good deal for $55 a month, a lot better than getting with a local company like I've seen my neighbors do just to switch to ADT a few years later.
The systems monitored by ADT use hardwired and wireless equipment to detect home invasions and guard against environmental damage. The system can also be installed to communicate wirelessly or by landline with the monitoring centers. Plans offered by ADT range from $37 to $53 per month. ADT requires customers to sign a 36-month contract (24 months in California). However, if the customer is not satisfied and meets the requirements, they can get a refund of all installation costs and monitoring fees up to 6 months after signing the agreement.
At the end of the day, it's all about the sign outside your house. The respect err. fear from thieves and burgulars the sign of ADT commands is simply astonishing. The high deterrence quotient of ADT's very recognizable sign in itself is a very good reason for going with them. In the end, no one messes with a house with a yard sign that says, "Secured by ADT" in blues and whites and a great system to back it up. Enough said!
Also, don't expect ADT to listen to your complaint.  You won't get past helpdesk support. They suggest you write a letter if you want to speak to anyone higher that helpdesk.  A LETTER!, what century does this company live in. They must all drive to work using a Horse and Buggy. I knew at that point this wasn't the type of company that could provide me with the type of advanced security system you would expect in the 21st century.
Sensors: Most home security systems include motion sensors and door or window sensors. We suggest getting motion sensors for areas in your home that could be dangerous for children or pets (the garage, the sewing room, the laundry room, etc.). It’s also smart to get enough window sensors and door sensors to cover every possible entrance to your home.
