    Default ADT Security System

    We're thinking of having an ADT security system installed, but are still shopping around. Does anyone have an ADT system installed? Any complaints?

    TIA!

    We've had ADT since 2005 or so...we moved and rather than paying a huge fee to get out of the contract, we continued with the system. We're cancelling as soon as the contract is up in May. The only reason is because of budgeting issues. We'll still have the system in the house, but unmonitored. I can't remember how much it cost to put in but after that it's about $30 a month for them to monitor plus a $50 per year for the police administration fee(I think that's what it is).

    I have ADT at home and at my office. It has been fine. I have used them for about 8 or 9 years I think.

    We have it as well and it was around $35 a month but we also had the smoke detector. No complaints here

    We got it when DH worked nights and I was home alone.

    Thanks for all the feedback! We were leaning toward ADT and after reading all the positive feedback, we'll definitely go with them. We had a rep from ADT out yesterday and he explained everything in detail and the costs seem reasonable. We just thought b/4 signing on, we'd check here to see how others experiences were. Thanks again!

    We have one. Only complaint is the sensitivity of the fire alarm. It goes off for cooking bacon EVERY SINGLE TIME.

    Bumping this with update - we had a rep come out about 2 weeks ago and have been trying to get it installed since, but he's not returning our calls. For those of you who have it installed, did you go through ADT Security Services directly or go through an authorized ADT dealer? We're not impressed that we can't get through to him and the office wasn't concerned that we couldn't reach him either.

    I can't remember who I went through. I would call ADT direct in Calgary (there must be a 1-800 number). That is odd that he isn't returning your call unless he doesn't work for them anymore?

    We went right through ADT. It was 3-4 days between saying we wanted it and it being installed.
