ADT is known as one of the most trusted names in residential security. For almost 150 years, ADT has built new equipment and services in residential and commercial security. ADT developed the first automated burglar system in the 1940s and the first automated fire alarm system soon after that. The greatest innovation in the security industry, however, may have been when ADT created the central monitoring stations in the 1930s. This made it possible for homeowners to continuously have a live person backing up their alarms, around the clock.
The same principle of customer-centric, best-in-class security can still be found in ADT currently. Built upon current technology, ADT monitoring ensures that your alarms are monitored by by a live person who will send out emergency personnel right away to your home if necessary. Other offerings, such as home automation, can now be paired with your residential security system and managed by your ADT Command touchscreen. ADT even provides you with access to your alarms, video surveillance, and smart home through your phones and devices with the comprehensive ADT Control app.
