Upgrading Your Home Security

How to upgrade an existing home security system

In these uncertain times it’s only natural to think about protecting the things we hold dear. For anyone with a home alarm, one of the easiest and quickest things you can do is to look at upgrading your existing security system.

What’s the best way to upgrade?

Your next step will depend on what type of system you have already. If you have a standard home alarm it makes sense to switch to a monitored system, where a company like ADT constantly oversees your alarm and responds when it goes off – even if there’s nobody at home.

Or, if you already have a monitored alarm from ADT, it’s simple to add additional features to your package – from CCTV cameras to a Smart Home system that puts home security in the palm of your hand.

Why choose a monitored alarm?

Most standard alarms are fine at the one job they have to do – making a lot of noise. But if you’re not at home and intruders aren’t put off by the sound then their impact is limited. It’s one thing raising the alarm. What you really want is a guarantee that someone will answer it.

That’s where monitoring comes in.

A monitored alarm sends a signal directly to a monitoring centre that’s staffed around the clock. What happens next depends on the level of cover you prefer. ADT will not only notify you, but also additional people – a nominated keyholder who lives nearby, a private security company or even the police. You can find out more about response packages here.

And there’s more good news. With ADT you can even keep your existing alarm system – you simply pay a monthly fee for the monitoring service.

Adding extra features to your ADT alarm system

Perhaps you want to keep a closer eye on your property with a sophisticated CCTV system. Or maybe you like the idea of a video doorbell that shows exactly who’s calling. Adding extra elements to your ADT security system is easy. Many are controlled through our sophisticated but simple-to-use ADT Smart Home system which includes our Smart Services app, letting you view security camera footage, set your alarm remotely and even choose when your lights come on to welcome you home. It’s all part of a dedicated security system that puts you in control.
