ADT requires that all systems have professional monitoring 24 hours a day. Only the Smart and Complete packages allow you to arm and disarm your system remotely.

You can also receive alerts and set up automation. The Complete package is required to livestream and store your data in the cloud.

ADT includes cellular backup through Safewatch Cellguard. There is no additional contract required. A few companies, such as abode security offer home security without monthly fees. However, ADT requires you to sign up to a long-term contract (three years).

ADT will offer a fixed rate if you are committed to the long-term. Monthly contracts would have a higher rate. Read our full ADT system review to see what our experts think of it.

ADT is a traditional security company and has a traditional pricing structure, particularly when it comes to monthly charges. ADT charges between $40 and $60 per month for professional monitoring and mobile backup.

ADT Packages Prices aren't fixed and can fluctuate with newer companies. Their equipment is also on the more expensive side; however, those that are good at negotiating will appreciate the chance to haggle the company down to the lowest prices possible. Don't be afraid to negotiate!
