ADT is the gold standard in home security. For over 145 years, ADT has innovated new equipment and services in residential security. The company built the first automated burglar alarm in the 1940s and the first automated fire alarm shortly after that. The largest advancement in the security world, however, might have been when ADT launched the central monitoring stations in the 1930s. This ensured that customers would always have a live specialist 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. Using leading-edge technology, ADT monitoring ensures that your security system is monitored by by a live person who will dispatch emergency departments right away to your home if necessary. Other offerings, such as home automation, can now be synced with your home security system and powered through your ADT Command touchscreen. ADT also provides you with access to your security alarms, video cameras, and smart home components through your devices with the comprehensive ADT Control app.
