ADT has a reputation as being a trusted national brand in residential security. For close to 150 years, ADT has innovated new equipment and services in residential and commercial security. ADT developed the first automated burglar alarm in the 1940s and the first automated fire alarm system soon after that. The biggest new service in the security industry, however, may have been when ADT designed the central monitoring stations in the 1930s. This guaranteed that residents would always have a live ADT rep backing up their alarms, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The same principle of customer-centric, best-in-class security can still be found in ADT today. Built upon the latest technology, ADT monitoring ensures that your alarms are monitored by by a live person who will send out emergency departments at once to your home if necessary. Other services, such as home automation, can now be integrated with your security system and powered through your ADT Command wireless touchscreen. ADT also gives you access to your sensors, video surveillance, and smart home components through your phones and devices with the powerful ADT Control app.
