Thank you. -Andrew
This company sucks! They insisted that I needed an ugrade to my monitoring to wireless. They sent out a rep that changed my system to wireless. Well the sensor in my bedroom kept signaling that there was break in. The police came out 3 times, where I was charged for 3 false alarms. I called ADT to complain, they said that I had to pay for the false alarms and show them proof of payment to be reimbursed. They sent out their tech, that fixed the problem and I mailed them proof of payment for the false alarms. We went around and aroud with them sayig theey had to investigate the problem! What?! After 6 months of the back and forth, approximately, a supervisor tells me that they do not give... Read More

Chances are if you’re thinking of a friend or neighbor’s home security system, they probably have an ADT sign out front. ADT has been considered the industry standard for home security, and although some of their stuff might not be as flashy, the equipment is solid and the monitoring aspect receives good reviews with customers (although sales and installation customer service could use some love). Plus, you can always expand your system with home automation options.
I am a home automation enthusiast and a DIY guy. When I started out with home automation, I was using the open source OpenHAB for my hub. This was nice for having everything localized, but too get anything to work was a chore and I spent most of my time messing with the system rather than enjoying it. I was looking for a mature system that would give me a lot of the benefits that OpenHAB gave me without all of the time spent on configuring it. I was also looking for a decent home security system to incorporate into the home automation system. That's when I found this product, ADT is the name I trust when it comes to home security and the SmartThings Hub was always ranked #1 in all of the reviews I read.
*I agree to be contacted by an ADT Authorized Dealer even if I am on a Do Not Call list. In addition by clicking the check box I consent to be called back from an ADT Authorized Dealer at the phone number provided, including cellular, which may be generated from an automated phone dialing system. You are not required to provide this consent to make a purchase from us.
The technician arrived to install the system and explained how the 2-way voice works. I think I will use the Pulse App feature alot more than this but it is a good feature to have. Don't count on getting a rate at the $36.99 mentioned price, most likely it will be around $45-50 unless you do the old land line system. Either way I got a good deal and a lot of free equipment so thanks for doing this research.
Certain restrictions may apply. *"Best Value Pkg is with 36 month contract paid in full up front ($1007.64). Other rate plans available. Offer applies to homeowners only. Local permit fees may be required. Satisfactory credit history required. Offer valid for new ADT Authorized Dealer customers only and not on purchases from ADT Security Services, Inc. Cannot be combined with any other offer.
I tested ADT Pulse (starting at $28.99 per month plus components and installation), which combines the company's alarm and security service with home automation and monitored surveillance. ADT easily rivals its top competitors, including Vivint Smart Home, in functionality, though if you opt for the top of its service tiers as I did, you might want to prep yourself for sticker shock. Even so, ADT Pulse earns our Editors' Choice for home security systems.
To sum up the questions of ADT cost, California Security Pro offers you competitive pricing, great specials and we will match the price on any current ADT special offer or price for a comparable system and installation.

Our price match policy assures you can get the best value from the company that will take the best care of your needs.
Frontpoint requires a big commitment after its 30-day trial: a 36-month contract. If within three years, your housing situation or security priorities change, it could cost 80% of your remaining contract to cancel. However, Frontpoint also makes a big commitment to you. Its equipment comes with a matching three-year warranty, while the rest of the DIY industry caps at one year.
Just like smart plugs and keyless deadbolts may not be for everyone, neither is self-monitoring. If you opt to DIY your system’s monitoring, it’s up to you to take action on reported activity. If you can handle fielding alerts (for both false alarms and real break-ins), just be sure that you keep your phone’s volume on and the battery charged. But if you suspect you may want the undivided attention of professional monitoring in the future, go with a company whose professional monitoring practices and prices align with your needs.
Really disappointed in these cameras. We had outdoor cameras installed and a few weeks later that they record 30 second clips, but after each 30 sec clip the camera is UNABLE TO RECORD for 4 minutes?? So, a bad guy pulls into my property. There's a 30 sec recording of them and then at a critical time there's no recording for 4 minutes? Why is this and how does this make sense??
You won’t find any entry sensors with Canary, so it’s not great for homes with many access points (multiple doors and ground-floor windows), though it does have the ability to sync with multiple Canary cameras to form a web of video security. If you’re living in an apartment, and primarily need security cameras for home surveillance, the tower’s 145-degree lens should cover the majority of your living space.
ADT offers a lot beyond basic home security (like medical alert monitoring), but the company charges extra for safety essentials like smoke and carbon monoxide monitoring, which other security companies include. You also have to upgrade for an extended warranty if you select either of the Basic packages. We’d like to see ADT cut their customers a break and create some affordable package options that include smoke and CO2 alerts along with a good, solid warranty for all plans.
I bought a house back in 2015 and decided to have a security system installed since I wasn’t going to be home much and would like some peace of mind. ADT was a pretty well known security company in my area and a few families in my neighborhood have ADT so I gave them a call. I ended up selling the house after a year and a half since I travel too much for work. I called to cancel my service to be told that I signed a three year contract and that I’d have to pay the remainder of the contract or I wouldn’t be able to cancel. I told them that I did not sign a contract and I was not made aware of there being a contract. The contract that I supposedly signed was emailed to me and the “signature” on the contract was nowhere close to mine. I was told to fill out a fraud package, to which I did. I filled out and sent in a fraud package only for the fraud department to say that my signature was “confirmed” and that it was me who sign it. How could I have sign a contract I was never informed about or seen? The only form I signed was the installment agreement and nowhere did it say I have to have the service for three years.
Temperature costs can add up, especially in winter and summer seasons, so it’s a good idea to turn off the heat or air conditioning when no one’s there to enjoy it. You can remotely adjust the Nest thermostat with the Pulse app. That way, when you’re leaving work or school, you can kick on your climate controls so the atmosphere is perfect by the time you get home.

I had someone enter my home when I was at work. ADT called me right away but the cops didn't show up in time. I called back to see what ADT recorded as to how quickly they called (to see if it was their fault or police) and they said they called dispatch after neither myself or my wife answered our phones. So regardless of how quick or slow ADT may be, it still is up to your local authorities to trust their word and come check out your house. A few things got shuffled around with but nothing of real value got stolen. Not fun knowing someone has been snooping around in our home and now I am adding some Pulse cameras to the system for better surveillance.
Magnetic door/window sensors are made up of two small magnetic pieces; one is mounted to the top of the door or window frame, while the second is placed directly on the door or window. Vanishing sensors can be placed inside the door/window and inside the frame so no one knows they are there. The two sensor pieces are in contact with each other while the door/window is closed. When they are opened, the sensors separate and an alarm is triggered.
