How ADT Monitoring and Safe Streets USA Help Keep Your Family Safe
Read a testimonial from a Safe Streets USA customer about the ADT monitored system in their family home:
Our ADT monitored home security system provides my family with a great sense of well-being. Whether we are at home or away, we know that our home and property are under constant watch and that every effort is made to ensure our safety. Safe Streets USA proposed several options to meet our budget, and we were very pleased with the installation and instructions that we received to get the system up and running. Now, all we need to do is remember a simple code for the security keypad, and everything is under ADT’s watchful eye.
Here are five reasons why we decided to invest in an ADT monitored home security system:
A few homes in the neighborhood saw break ins, and this prompted me to contact Safe Streets USA. We were advised that motion sensors in around the home, sensors on windows and doors,wireless security, plus the 24-hour ADT monitoring systems would work well to dissuade anyone from trying to force their way into the house. Whether we are home or away, ADT Customer Monitoring Centers are keeping tabs on the house and also in communication with local police if detecting a burglary. Of course, no system can stop someone from trying to get into the house but, with ADT monitoring, there is a better chance of either making them leave or catching the thief in the act.
ADT offers the option of camera surveillance not monitored by ADT. This way, the monitoring personnel can see what’s going on and even use speakers in the house to tell someone to leave. What we decided would work best is two cameras watching the outside of the front and back of the house. The monitors can see who’s approaching the property. The options are all up to us how much we want and how much might be too much. Again, we like the idea of knowing the house is being monitored, and it’s just another layer of security for a criminal to breach.
The security system installation procedure included smoke detectors wired into the monitoring system. If fire breaks out in the house, not only do we get an alarm to awaken and warn us, but the fire department is almost simultaneously contacted. ADT will contact us if the alarm sounds but, if we don’t answer and give a reason that it’s a false alarm, the fire department will be on its way. We really like this because it helps protect our home when we are there and especially if we are away. Even when no one is home, ADT keeps an eye on things and will alert the first responders when there’s trouble.
Although we don’t have cameras installed inside the house (only outside), ADT customers can decide if an interior camera is a good way to monitor for injuries. This is an especially good idea if there are small children in the home, physically disabled residents, and older family members. If someone suffers some sort of serious injury, ADT personnel can contact the home to determine the injured person's condition or immediately dispatch emergency services. It’s a great way to have peace of mind if anyone is home alone.
The best thing to happen is for nothing to happen. The ADT yard sign and window decals are a clear warning around the property that ADT is monitoring our house; we know many passing burglars will keep on driving. That’s a great feeling. Every month, we pay a small fee to ADT to help keep things safe, and we know we are getting our money’s worth with another uneventful month. Although ADT monitoring might not prevent a fire or a natural disaster, it can certainly work to help prevent fire or someone’s injury from becoming more serious with precious time
wasted waiting for help.
What we’ve decided is ADT monitoring doesn’t just bring some technology into the house to keep us safe, it brings peace of mind whether we are home or far away. That is worth every penny.

As the “ADT yard signs” started popping up in neighbors' yards, the burglaries have gone away. That’s what we wanted, and that’s what we got.
