ADT is the gold standard in residential security. For almost 150 years, ADT has built new equipment and services in residential and commercial security. ADT built the first automated burglar system in the 1940s and the first automated fire alarm system around the same time. The biggest innovation in the security industry, however, may have been when ADT launched the central monitoring stations in the 1930s. This made it possible for homeowners to always have a live person 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 is still found in ADT today. Built on the latest technology, ADT monitoring ensures that your system is monitored by by a security specialist who will dispatch emergency services right away to your home if necessary. Other products, including home automation, can be paired with your residential security system and managed through your ADT Command wireless touchscreen. ADT also offers access to your security alarms, video cameras, and smart home through your phones and devices with the all-encompassing ADT Control application.
