The Good

Free home security evaluation - At ADT, every customer is entitled to a comprehensive, free home security evaluation. Evaluations can be scheduled online, or over the phone (toll-free). A local ADT service rep. will then walk through your home, right by your side. During your walkthrough, your service rep. will work with you to identify major security threats and then explain ADT’s solutions.

24 hour alarm monitoring - ADT is the largest home security service provider in the United States. This allows ADT to have strategically located monitoring centers throughout the nation, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All ADT monitoring centers are owned and operated by ADT, and all centers employ educated professionals.

Service guarantees - On top of protecting your home and your family, ADT is also dedicated to your financial security.

ADT guarantees include:

  • Theft protection – ADT will pay an insurance deductible of up to $500 in the event your home is robbed while armed.
  • 100% money back – For up to 6 months following installation.
  • Homeowners insurance certificate – Install ADT and save up to 20% on your homeowner’s insurance.

The Bad

While ADT is our top pick, we did have one minor complaint when testing their services. Like most websites, ADT’s is geared towards sales. As such, it is a bit difficult to navigate and access information, and it would be helpful if they were more direct about their pricing.
