I was looking at the website for ADT last month. My father had recently moved closer to me, and he had asked me if I would look into the various companies that provide not only home security systems but monitoring services as well. He was going to go the cheap route and just order some cameras that we could install at his new house, but he knew that he needed something a bit more after thinking about it for a while. He needed a company that was going to be able to handle emergencies even if he was not home since he travels a lot.
He wanted to have a monitoring service that would send out an alert to local authorities if a fire should happen. He was concerned when he was away, but I liked that he would get this same service when he is home too. My father smokes, and it scares me that he may accidentally start a fire. He never has, but I also know that there can be a first time for it. I just liked that the smoke alarms and the carbon monoxide detector was going to be connected to the security system.
After finding the best deal for him, I realized that I would be able to afford a similar system at my house too. I had no idea that it did not cost a lot of money to have a security system. I especially thought that ADT would be expensive simply because of their name and also because they do offer the monitoring service. I was pleasantly surprised, and I arranged to have both of our homes equipped with a home security system. My dad feels better having one in his home, but he likes it even better that my home is protected now too.
