Real Benefits of an ADT Alarm System… Worth It?

By February 17, 2015 June 25th, 2019 No Comments

Brand name awareness is one of the most popular reasons people buy from national companies like ADT.  For decades, the company has built their reputation upon a foundation of marketing genius that has contributed to great brand name recognition. In fact, when it comes to security monitoring, ADT is one of the most well-known security companies in the business.

Home Security and Home Automation

As crime evolves, so too must the tools used to thwart their crimes. To counter the “bad guys,” ADT has led the market in touting the benefits of integrating security systems with your home automation system. Using their new ADT Pulse, you can monitor your home via your iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, or computer. Comparable systems from independent providers offer the same brilliant technology with end user benefits at a lower cost and higher customer satisfaction ratings. One, branded as Honeywell Total Connect, offers the same total control whether you’re at work or on a beach but at a much lower cost and without a binding contract. Check out SHIELD’s pricing on Total Connect here.

Another great benefit of ADT Pulse technology happens when you get notified of events that your alarm system tracks. Total Connect does the same thing: Should your alarm trip, you’ll be notified via either email or a text message. This guarantees that should something happen, you’ll be notified within moments that a response is being coordinated and that the “good guys” have it taken care of. In fact, the beauty of home security paired with great home automation is that the only thing you need to “worry” about is making sure that you make your payment.

A Smart Theft Deterrent

Of course, one of the best benefits of any alarm system, (ADT alarm systems and Honeywell included), is that thieves and crooks know to stay away from it. Thus, simply having the sticker in the window of your home is sometimes enough of a deterrent that they will search for a softer target.  Coupled with quick installation and some of the most clever messaging in the security industry, installing an ADT or any independent alarm system company may give you the peace of mind you’ve been searching for.
