ADT considered a trusted national brand in residential security. For almost 150 years, ADT has pioneered new equipment and services in home security. The company developed the first automated burglar system in the 1940s and the first automated fire alarm around the same time. The largest innovation in the security industry, however, may have been when ADT built the central monitoring centers in the 1930s. This ensured that customers would always have a live person watching over their security system, around the clock.
The same principle of customer-centric, best-in-class security is still found in ADT today. Built upon current technology, ADT monitoring ensures that your security system is watched over by a security specialist who will send out emergency departments quickly to your house if needed. Other services, like home automation, can be paired with your residential security system and controlled by your ADT Command touchpad. ADT also provides you with access to your alarms, cameras, and smart home with your devices with the easy-to-use ADT Control application.
