Yes, you can self monitor your ADT system, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Here’s why:
1. You’re not a professional security company. You don’t have the same resources or expertise that we do.
2. We provide 24/7 monitoring, so you can rest assured that someone is always watching your home, even when you’re not.
3. Our professionally trained operators will contact the authorities in the event of an emergency, ensuring a quick response time.
4. If you have a monitored system, your homeowners insurance may give you a discount.
So while you can self monitor your ADT system, we think it’s best to leave it to the professionals.
