HOME SECURITY SERVICES
ADT's authorized dealers offer life safety and home protection services that are designed to address a specific need for family members and your home. Protect yourself against burglary, theft, and other risks by finding a home security dealer who works in your community.
Here are a few examples of how a monitored alarm system can benefit you and your family:
- Your home and family are being looked after 24 hours a day, whether you're at home, away on holidays, or asleep.
- You can save on home insurance. Some insurers offer their policy holders significant discounts if their homes are installed with a security alarm system.
- You will deter burglars from entering your home and have peace of mind when you're away.
Home Security Monitoring Services
Home security systems can be designed to protect you and your family from a variety of dangers. Your system can be designed to include a variety of equipment that will allow us to monitor for:
Intrusion and Burglary
Annually, 1.2 million Canadians fall victim to a property crime and 300,000 are victims of a violent crime1. ADT authorized dealers will complete a security assessment and develop a complete home security solution that protects you from unwanted intruders.
Smoke and Fire Detection
In 37% of the homes where fire and death occur, the smoke alarm was inoperable due to the battery2. ADT can ensure a monitored smoke detector is always working. If fire is detected, they will dispatch a fire and rescue crew to your house within minutes, whether you are there or not.
Flood and Water Damage
Flood related insurance claims in Canada are estimated to be in the order of $140 million per year3. Early notification can prevent or reduce the effects of flood-related damage. Flood detectors can be installed in the basement, laundry room, kitchen, or near any water source.
CO poisoning causes over 300 deaths annually in North America4. CO is colourless, odourless and undetectable by humans. However, ADT will sense it immediately. When unsafe levels of CO are detected, the monitoring centre will immediately contact you, and send emergency help if required.
ADT authorized dealers can install temperature sensors that monitor abnormal changes in temperature, alerting and saving you from a costly and unfortunate outcome resulting from overheating or freezing.
Home Security Enhanced Services
Our dealers offer a variety of other services and features for added safety and peace of mind.
Guard Response Service
As an additional layer of protection, private security Guards can respond on your behalf when there is an alarm. If there is an emergency, guards will contact the authorities and remain on location until they arrive.
Two Way Voice Response Service
Voice Response offers hands free communications between customers and the monitoring centre during an alarm. Operators can communicate directly with you to get the necessary information to effectively handle your situation.
SkyGARD-CTM (Wireless Security System) Service
More secure than conventional phone lines, SkyGARD-CTM gives you added protection and replaces your phone line if it is damaged or tampered with. Wireless cellular transmission means that the connection between your home and the monitoring centre is free from physical disturbance.
ADT's TeleGARDTM is an electronic messaging service that connects you to your security system. Stay connected with what is happening in your home with the help of TeleGARDTM.
Contact a dealer in your area and ask them how they can design a home security system to meet your safety needs.
