Can I install my own home security system?

The simple answer to that question is yes you can. And it’s likely to cost less than a professionally installed alarm, but when it comes to protecting your home and the things that are most valuable to you, nothing compares to a tailored home security package from ADT.

How will you know which DIY system is best?

That’s another big question. And with so many different systems available, you’ll have to spend many hours comparing all the options without ever knowing which one will be the most effective.

Everything is OK until it’s not OK.

The main thing to remember is that most DIY burglar alarm systems are unmonitored. If they go off, there will be no-one there to respond to the alarm, so the best it can do is make a loud noise. Will that offer real security or simply annoy your neighbours? When 76% of Brits admit to ignoring ringing home alarms*, do you really want to risk finding out?

If your DIY alarm system stops working, you may find yourself trawling through online forums for answers to figure out what’s wrong and your home isn’t protected until you find a solution. With a professionally installed alarm from ADT you’ll benefit from an all-inclusive service and maintenance package, meaning all you’ll have to do is get in touch and we’ll take care of the rest, saving you the hassle.

Professional is better.

Home security is all about peace of mind. A professionally installed and monitored home burglar alarm with ADT on the box says you are serious about security.

All ADT alarm systems come with 24/7/365 monitoring as standard. That means once activated, it sends a signal to ADT’s UK based monitoring centre. As soon as the activation is confirmed, ADT’s security experts respond by calling you, your nominated keyholders, the police or a private security guard, depending on your level of cover. And with ADT’s all-inclusive service and maintenance plan, you’ll have complete peace of mind when it comes to protecting your home.

Unlike DIY systems, ADT are fully accredited across the board, giving you the assurance that your system is installed to the highest standard by one of our fully trained engineers.

Take home security seriously.
