ADT are renowned for providing products and systems at a level to suit all requirements and budgets. They manage this by offering all encompassing systems for private properties, as well as individual products and services for businesses, allowing customers to create bespoke levels of security.
Products and services for private security include:
- Smart Home
- Burglar Alarms
- Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
An all encompassing package that offers the highest level of private security, Smart Home provides remote overviews, control and automation of the entire system. You can set the burglar alarm from anywhere with internet access and view CCTV whenever required, even from your smartphone.
Motion detectors mean you know who is coming and going from your property, adding peace of mind for parents of small and adolescent children. What’s more, if the property is empty, you can make it appear as if the house is occupied by turning lights on or off, either manually or via automation. Added security is provided with a back up wifi system, which means even during a power shortage your system will remain up and running. Monitoring the entire system costs as little as 99p per day.
One of the longest serving security products available, burglar alarms still offer an important function for any property security. In fact, such alarms are still considered the biggest deterrent for the would-be thief. ADT provide flashing alarms, that make all aware of their presence and wireless models that are able to blend in with your property’s aesthetic. All alarms are made to suit the specific property they will be employed to protect and each alarm is easy to control with simple to use touch screen interfaces. 24/7 monitoring costs as little as 89p per day.
Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
While the vast majority of us are aware of the important of a smoke or carbon monoxide alarm, few understand the importance for maintaining them. ADT monitor all their alarms so you don’t have to. When batteries become low, ADT can inform you immediately, so you are never without protection. Monitoring starts from just 7p per day, and can be tailored to suit your specific needs.
For most security products and services the differences between residential and business are small, but significant. Most business security requires more in depth and widespread methods than the more easily defined requirements of private security.
ADT business security products include:
- Intruder Security Systems
Intruder Security Systems
Business security systems can be as simple as their private counterparts, or extremely complex and detailed. For ADT, and their renowned bespoke services, this is very much the case. At the entry level, intruder alert systems are monitored 24/7 and at the first sign of problems they can notify both the property holder and the police. Such quick responses are often the difference between a catastrophic burglary and a small inconvenience.
At its most powerful, ADT can also provide anti-intruder fog responses, which make it extremely difficult for thieves to operate once inside. Fully integrated security also means that the entire property is monitored and high value property, such as specific stock or equipment, can receive special attention from CCTV and motion detectors.
CCTV has come a long way in the digital age. Gone are the days of fuzzy and expensive tape, replaced by rich footage that can be saved for as long as needed. To this end ADT provide HD quality cameras and storage for businesses as diverse as warehouses and retail, and because CCTV is not as simple as installing a camera wherever you see fit, ADT can ensure that every part of your business is monitored and tailored to your business’s need.
The effectiveness of a security system is not only measured by how well it denies access to your property for thieves and vandals, it must also maintain easy access for both management and employees. Unfortunately this is not always a straightforward practice as different employees often require separate levels of security clearance.
Another issue is that of keys, which can be stolen or copied, rendering most parts of a security system redundant. ADT’s access control addresses all these issues with various forms of identification. Audio and video entry systems means security is maintained for people coming and going from your property and the latest smartcard technology allows businesses to manage each level of security in a manner they see fit.
ADT provide full 24/7 monitoring of your property and the maintaining of the system itself. High quality smoke detectors allow ADT to respond to fires quickly, while intruder alerts contact the police immediately in the event of a break in. As speed is of the essence, ADT focus on rapid response times, which has led to 80% of all alerts being responded to within 30 seconds. The average time to resolve each problem is just 17 minutes, meaning downtime is kept to a minimum and peace of mind to a maximum.
ADT monitoring services means that issues are rare and dealt with as a matter of course. This in turn means that help lines are not a priority as the whole model is based on automated responses. In the extremely rare case that you will require extra help from ADT, there is a separate help line for private and business customers, as well as email. For enquiries there are also private and business free phone lines available.
