How to Choose the Right ADT Home Security System Features


How to choose the right ADT home security system features depends on the family and their needs, but many features every family needs. Every family is different and this is why having the right features is important and rather than this being a security system against break-ins, it is a house and family protection system. There are some features like break-in protection and protection from smoke and fire that every family should have in their home security system, but then there are others not all families will find necessary. These features can include more protection from the ADT home security system that will provide the special security that the family finds necessary to fit their specific needs.

There is carbon monoxide detection, which will sound an alarm and the home security system will alert the monitoring center to this situation. That is important for families that have gas furnaces, stoves or hot water heaters. The family that has a total electric house normally will not have this concern, unless using a fireplace or some type of fuel heater in their home. The use of a generator can also cause carbon monoxide during power outages if not properly used outdoors, because the exhaust can put dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in the home

  • Medical monitoring is another feature that is perfect for the older adult living alone or the family that has someone with a medical condition that needs emergency medical help occasionally will also benefit from this service. This is a feature that not all families need, but when it is necessary as a feature it can make life much easier and safer.
  • Security cameras are another feature that can be added to the ADT home security system, which protect the home and family and is east to monitor on a computer at another location or at home on a computer or television that is wired to the system. This is a feature that will help even further protect the home and family from break-ins, because the last thing that a thief wants is to have their face appear on camera.
  • ADT home security packages can be customized to include flood detection, which means if a pipe breaks in the home it will trigger the alarm system. This can save thousands of dollars in damage in a home.
  • Keychain remotes are another of the advantages that can be a part of the ADT home security system. This makes it easy for the youngest to the oldest member of the family to arm and disarm the security system when leaving or entering the house.

These are options that can be a part of the ADT home security system that can make it a total protection system for the house and family. All of the features might not fit each family. The ability to choose the features that fit, make it perfect for every family against break-ins, smoke, fire, carbon monoxide and other dangers that can occur.

    ADT it top notch in the business of security, they came to my home and explained what kind of security system would work best for me. It has motion sensors, alarms, smoke detectors, and much more but it isn’t so overwhelming that I can’t work it. ADT did a great job explain everything to me and I can not recommend them strongly enough. This was a great article.

  2. John says:

    I started reading your article and by the time I was done I was convinced that I need a security system. It is very scary what burglars can do and how they can find your home by following you. I will be looking for people following me now and this next week I will be contacting ADT to get a system installed as soon as possible. Thank you for opening my eyes.

  3. Rocio says:

    I don’t want to call it a trend, but recently, I have seen numerous news reports about houses going up in flames for different reasons. In one incident, there was dramatic audio of the fire fighters calling in for rescue support as they were about to rush in to the second story to save a mother and child. In another report, a dog woke up the owners in time for them to escape the burning home. Even if you own a dog, I think the risk of fire is a great reason for having an ADT system as they’re designed for smoke detetion.

  4. Alice says:

    The fact that ADT has made it so you can choose what features you want on your system (ala carte) shows that they are number one in the business. They have actually sat down and ran through the scenarios of the different families and they stepped up to the plate to give them exactly what they need. Great article with lots of great information thank you.

  5. Tamera says:

    I can’t believe it a security company finally did what I thought they should do years ago. I purchased a security system at my old house and it had all these features that I never used and it didn’t have things that I needed, like the smoke detector. We lost that home to a fire of course and ever sense that time I have been waiting for something like this, this is great news!

  6. Charles says:

    The carbon monoxide detection feature is really interesting because this gas is a silent killer. That and the video surveillance feature is enough to make me want to get an ADT system installed. Having the ability to see around your home when you are away from the house can really give you a comforting feeling and a sense of control over your home. For some persons who have obsessive compulsive tendencies, this makes the perfect gift.

  7. Nick says:

    I have never had a security system before because I have always lived in an apartment. I also never found the system I really wanted, they always had all this stuff on them that I didn’t need or didn’t know how to use. Now that they have simplified it and I can get just what I want I am seriously considering one even for my apartment. ADT will definitely be who I purchase it from.

  8. Regina says:

    I can not tell you how helpful ADT was when I went to them and had them explain the security system options that I had available to me. I basically can get what I want and I don’t have to have a bunch of stuff I will never use. This was a great article pointing out how great ADT is you did a terrific job and I can personally say that it is all true.

  9. Doris says:

    I have always wanted a smart house where I could run lights and everything from my bedroom, it sounds like this can be done that way. I never imagined that you could control your temperature in the house with your security system but that is just another plus. I love it and I have to get one, thank you for putting this all together where we could see it. I’m sold out for ADT.

  10. Eugene says:

    Thank you for publishing the tips for how to choose the right security system for my home. I am pleasantly surprised with ADT and I am considering going with the ADT pulse as my security system because there are so many options that I can choose from to make it fit my family perfectly. I am so glad that someone has finally came up with this idea.

  11. Richard says:

    That banner offer sounds pretty good. I wonder if you get the one hundred dollar gift card as soon as you order the ADT system or if you have to mail some rebate in and then wait for the reward in the mail. I would consider ordering a system, but I happen to be the kind of person who likes to enjoy instant gratification. So naturally, I want the spending money as soon as possible.

  12. Corey says:

    The purchase of a home security system can be compared to the purchase of a funeral plot. Everyone has various fears and ways of dealing with imminent threats to their normal way of life. And these act as motivating factors in the decision to buy a home monitoring system or a tombstone. Whether it is the fear of death or the fear of getting burglarized, making such a purchase is a way of dealing or shielding ourselves from the emotional stress that either of these two traumatic events causes.

  13. John says:

    Basically you can have a security system on your house that is turned on and off like your car security system. I can not believe that you can get a security system now days that has cameras, motion detector lights, motion detector door bells, a key fob for turning it on and off and it will control the temperature in your house. This is absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to get mine installed.

  14. Marquis says:

    I think this is amazing, you can actually choose what features you want on your security system. In the beginning you ad your basic security system that sounded an alarm and that was about it. Technology has come a long way in the past years to having one that you can pick and choose features on. And they aren’t just an audible alarm anymore it actually calls the monitoring company for you.

  15. Janice says:

    My mom is up there in age but refuses to sell her home, I worry about her because her health isn’t great. Is it possible to install a security system in her home that has the medical monitoring on it that I control from my computer so that I can make sure it is on all the time? I am thinking about the cameras to so I can keep an eye on her.

  16. Argentina says:

    My son may not like the fact that I am having the cameras for this system installed because now I can see who he has over to the house when we are out of town, but I was wondering If you already have a system is it something that you can add features too or do you have to get it installed the way you want it up front?

  17. Chad says:

    You have done a great job listing all the things that a home security system can do, it amazes me that you can even get flood detection on there now. ADT has become the top in security systems over the last few years and it is easy to see why. I have to get one especially for the camera feature I want to know when someone has been in my house and who it is.

  18. Rose says:

    Your banner offer sounds like a good one but what does it cost to add more motion detectors and more points of entry? I love the fact that the gift card basically makes the system free except for installation I’m sure. Although can’t these be installed by yourself? What is the extra charge for adding more features to it that it will monitor for or do you have to get a different system?

  19. Charlotte says:

    Living in a high flood zone I think the added flood detection feature would definitely be something I would want ans it might even lower my insurance rates by having it. The medical monitoring, how exactly does that work? I have a grandmother living with us that needs medical attention but how does this monitor her? I don’t want a bunch of false alarms going off.

  20. Robert says:

    It is just amazing to me that a security system company has made a system that is basically ala carte. I love the fact that you can personalize it to meet your family’s needs.

  21. Paul says:

    I love the fact that you can personalize it to meet your family’s needs. I live in an all electric home so the carbon monoxide would be a waste, but I live in an area that is surrounded by water so the flood detector would be an added benefit that no other company offers. ADT has out done themselves with this one and I will be ordering mine this week.

  22. Richelle says:

    I would love to get the system advertised on your banner offer but what would it cost to add more motion detectors and more points of entry? Should I just look at one of the more advanced systems? I love the fact that the gift card basically makes the system free except for installation though because that way I can afford it. Can these be installed by yourself so you don’t have the installation fee?

  23. Gwendolyn says:

    I am glad that ADT offers the Flood detection on their system because living in a high flood zone I think the added flood detection feature would definitely be something I would want. Do you know if it might lower my insurance rates. You know they always base your insurance off of whether you live in a flood plan or not so I was wondering.

  24. Toni says:

    I do not know if you all have noticed, but there seems to be a major promotional push, not just from the local level, but also on the national level, with TV commercials airing during highly rated television and sports shows. This would suggest to me that ADT is a franchise which provides a whole lot of support for its franchise members. I have searched the net and it is over saturated with web sites competing for the top rankings. This brand is very much established.

  25. Jose says:

    Is the medical monitoring capabilities kind of like life alert? Is there a button on the system to push or does it come with something that can be worn by the person needing it? I am also curious about the two way voice feature, the monitoring company can use this to hear what is going on in the house during a break in, is that correct? Can the homeowner do that?

    • Ruler says:

      Yes, you can have a button that can be worn for the medical alert. The two way voice is for the monitoring station to be able to listen in on a break in or home evasion and to be able to communicate with anyone in the house that might need help during a fire or medical emergency.

  26. Mary says:

    I am looking for a system that has all of this plus, I was considering your Pulse system, that is the one that we can pick and choose what we want right? I have been robbed before and I do not want that feeling of helplessness again. This is the one way I can feel confident about my safety and the safety of my home.
