With all of the great features that ADT offers, you may be wondering what the differences are between each security package. The SafeWise ADT monitoring page provides a clear and convenient way to compare various ADT security monitoring packages, but more information means better choices. Here’s what you get with each tier, what each of the features really means to you, and how much room there is for personal customization.


The Basic plan sounds anything but basic, providing full 24/7 security monitoring, professional installation and a free* security system. Not simply a “starter” system, the hardware from Protect Your Home is completely wireless and includes the essential control panel, three door/window sensors and a pet-immune motion detector sensor, which doesn’t detect pets weighing up to 60 pounds. The plan also includes a window decal and yard sign, both of which are major deterrents to any would-be intruder.

2-Way Voice

The next step up gives you all of the hardware, installation and monitoring of the Basic plan, but adds 2-Way Voice for immediate real-time communication with the monitoring center. Plus, you’ll get the extremely useful key fob which gives you remote control of alarm arm and disarm functions, electronic door locks, and a panic button for one-touch emergency response.


If you’re one of the growing number of homeowners who have “cut the cord” and use a cell phone or VoIP, CellGuard® is a must-have option. But even if you have a landline, CellGuard® provides a wireless second line of defense against phone service outages, including those caused by intruders cutting your cables. The CellGuard® tier includes the installation, monitoring and free* security system of the Basic package, plus the remote key fob.

2-Way Voice and CellGuard®

If you’re torn between choosing real-time communication with 2-Way Voice or the 100% wireless connection of the CellGuard® package, ADT makes it easy by combining both services in a single tier. Of course, this package comes with the free security system, multiple-center 24/7 monitoring and professional system installation you get with all ADT monitoring packages, as well as the yard sign/decals and remote key fob.

ADT Pulse®

ADT’s premium monitoring service gives you everything you get with the CellGuard® package and adds cutting-edge control and access from any Internet connected device. Arm or disarm your security system using your smartphone or computer, anywhere in the world. No matter where you go, you can receive notifications and warnings from your home security system via email or text messages, including custom alerts that you can set up yourself.

Customize Your Package

Protect Your Home offers a variety of monitoring packages to suit every type of home and lifestyle, but also knows that no two homes are alike. You have security needs and personal considerations that go beyond a predefined pricing tier. That’s why every ADT monitoring package from Basic to ADT Pulse® includes an expert in-home appraisal by a security professional. You’ll get the right hardware, services and monitoring options tailored for cutting-edge security that suits your particular home, and personal control that suits your particular lifestyle.
