Home Security: For Many Americans It’s Spelled ADT
ADT goes back a long way. The company was first formed in 1874, not as a security company but as an affiliation of 57 district telegraph delivery companies known as “American District Telegraph”. About 1909, 100 years ago, with the increase in phone usage and decline in telegraph service, ADT began moving into the business of protection with fire alarms and burglar alarms. Today ADT is the largest provider of home security systems in the United States and a major player in other parts of the world.
ADT’s main business is the installation and monitoring of alarm systems, not just for homes but for business and government. Here are some facts about ADT if you’re considering installing a first rate home security system:
ADT helps protect and make safe:
* 80% + of US major retailers
* 90% of Fortune 500 companies
* 72 US airports, including 19 of the busiest airports
* Employs over 6000 professional installers
* Has four Customer Monitoring Centers strategically located across the United States
* Handles 29 million alarm signals annually or 93,000 a day
* Protects over 6 million residential, commercial and government customers
Those facts might be enough for most people to say, yes I’ll choose ADT for my home security system. In case they aren’t, here are some other thoughts.
ADT home security systems have a reputation for being exceptionally user friendly. The technology may be complex, but operating the system is anything but.
