Professionals at ADT monitoring centers watch your system for you, but the more you add to your system, the more they have to watch. This means you can expect a higher monthly fee if you want features like a doorbell camera or automatic locks.

The bright side is ADT will notify you whenever your motion detectors or other equipment sense activity. So no matter how much you pay for monitoring, there’s always someone there to protect your home.

ADT Control®

The ADT Command Tier I plan gives you access to the mobile app, ADT Control. This app lets you control your home from anywhere in the world. If you’re out of town, you can turn on the lights so your home looks occupied. You can check in with your kids through live video before you leave work.

From the ADT Control app, you can arm and disarm your system, watch live video, and control your lights, locks, and thermostat. Your system sends up-to-date alerts to your phone when it senses something. Whether it’s a visitor ringing the doorbell, the kids coming home, or something more serious, you’ll know as soon as it happens.

Wireless Security Cameras

ADT uses the latest in wireless technology to make sure your home is not marred by the appearance of unsightly cables and wiring systems. ADT’s video options range from HD indoor cameras that look at home on a bookshelf to video doorbells to greet your visitors. If you want live video sent to your ADT app, expect to pay more for monitoring, but you’ll be able to check in on your home from anywhere.

When you find the ADT monitored security plan that meets your needs, your ADT home alarm system will be professionally installed.
