ADT considered the gold standard in residential security. For almost 150 years, ADT has built trusted technology and services in residential and commercial security. ADT created the first automated burglar alarm in the 1940s and the first automated fire alarm system shortly after that. The largest new service in the security industry, however, might have been when ADT built the central monitoring stations in the 1930s. This guaranteed that homeowners would always have a live person watching over their security system, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The same principle of customer-focused, best-in-class security is still found in ADT today. Built on current technology, ADT monitoring ensures that your alarms are backed by a security specialist who will send out emergency personnel right away to your home if necessary. Other services, including home automation, can be paired with your home security system and controlled through your ADT Command touchscreen. ADT also provides you with access to your security alarms, video surveillance, and smart home components with your devices with the all-encompassing ADT Control app.
