An ADT® Monitored Security System helps deter burglars, minimizes loss, helps to avoid intruder confrontation, protects against fire, medical emergency and ambush / hostage situations. When a would-be burglar or perpetrator realizes your home or business is protected by ADT®, they know what they are up against - the largest and most formidable security company in the world, with countless resources at hand to protect homes and businesses. Burglars and perpetrators only target the most vulnerable homes, so you can have peace of mind with ADT® that your home is far less vulnerable then those without a security monitoring system.
If a burglar does attempt to break in, a loud siren alerts you and anyone in the surrounding area of the danger. This allows you and your family time to react while ADT® quickly alerts the police to reverse the situation.
There's more to it than just ADT® signs & Window Decals.
The deterring effects of the ADT® yard signs and window decals as well as the loud alarm siren (110db) that alerts your family to a home invasion dramatically minimizes the chance of intruder confrontation, thus safeguarding your loved ones, pets, heirlooms and computer data.
ADT®'s (optional) smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide sensors alert your family and the local authorities to any danger that may exist. If any of these (optional) sensors are triggered, ADT® immediately dispatches the proper authorities to ensure your safety and the preservation of your property and valuables, whether or not you are home.
