ADT Security systems in the City of Ft Lauderdale, Fl is becoming a very familiar home upgrade. With an installation charge of $99 for most home security installations, ADT has become the number one name not just in Fort Lauderdale but in all of South Florida. As you drive down practically any city in Broward or Dade county you will find the very familiar blue and white ADT yard sign. With the advent of the ADT Authorized Dealer program came the ability to make home alarm systems extremely affordable. In times past you would have to invest hundreds if not a couple thousand dollars to protect an average home in Ft Lauderdale. In today’s day and age if you live in Pembroke Pines or Miramar, Fl where homes are ordinarily larger you can for the most part get a full perimeter protection wireless alarm system for just $99. This low price is made possible because of the fact that a 36 month ADT Monitoring agreement is required. If you rewind 25 years back, homeowners would have to pay tons of money for the equipment and installation but had no monitoring contract. They were basically free to cancel their monitoring services at any time. The fact of the matter however was that no one would pay all that money to just have their alarm system installed and then not have it monitored. So the fact of being able to cancel at any point was basically irrelevant. Somehow home owners thing that it is a benefit to be able to get out of an agreement at any time but it really doesn’t matter because whether you live here in Ft Lauderdale or in California you will still want ADT Monitoring services.
So now ADT has made it truly possible for any homeowner to install a home security system. Now that it’s established that ADT has made it affordable for anyone in Ft Lauderdale to afford a home alarm then the next thing to ask is who will install it for you? Because ADT has established the ADT Authorized Dealer program in South Florida it has put the home owners in the local Broward County cities at a great advantage. The reason this is a great benefit for home owners is that now ADT dealers can compete for your business. At this point you might be wondering how can ADT dealers compete for my business if the installation charge is always just $99? Well the competition takes place not necessarily in the installation price but instead in the amount of equipment that is actually installed in your home.
You might have a one bedroom apartment in Plantation, Fl and only need one door sensor and one motion sensor to have full protection if you are on a fourth floor with no access to your place except through the front door. And that would be just fine for any ADT dealer to fit into their basic package. However, if you have a large home in Weston, Fl with more than 15 doors and windows then the price will go up to several hundred dollars depending on who you choose to have the system installed with. All ADT Authorized Dealers are not the same.
The main thing to look at after you have decided to go with ADT is what will the
cover from the dealer you are doing business with. Most dealers publicize a free system but it comes with just 2 door sensors and 1 motion sensor. This is just appropriate protection for most homes. The main question to ask the ADT dealer you are intending to do business with is what exactly will their package include. This puts you in a great position because now you can shop around and get multiple quotes from different ADT dealers. In the city of Fort lauderdale, Fl there is literally more than 100 active dealers to pick from. Rather than have all of them come to your home, just have one or two come by and give you a free consultation to make sure you know exactly what you need and then shop it around over the phone. You will be very surprised at what a huge difference there is between one dealer and another.
One other major thing to consider when choosing who will install your home alarm system is what equipment will be used to protect your home? This seems on the surface to not really be a big deal but in actuality it is. While most alarm companies wont even discuss this matter with you it actually is important because not all equipment offers the same features and options. There are several major manufacturers that provide equipment for the ADT dealers to use and have been approved by ADT Security.
The most popular manufacturer used by most alarm companies is Honeywell Security. Honeywell corp actually bought out the oldest existing manufacturer some years ago name ADEMCO. ADEMCO was the pioneer in home and business security systems. Honeywell has since taken over and continued making ADEMCO products the number one name in home security. Another very popular name being used in alarm equipment is DSC Products. DSC is actually owned by TYCO International who is the parent company for ADT Security Services. Ironically, ADT does not require their dealer to exclusively use the DSC family of security products. In fact, ADT Corp themselves don’t always use DSC equipment even though it is manufactured by their own company. In many cases they actually use the Honeywell Security brand, which is rather ironic. GE is the other major manufacturer of alarm security products and is very popular among ADT and other alarm companies.
