I don’t know about anyone else, but I knew that as soon as the break ins started around town that I was going to get an ADT security system. I had been mulling over the fact that I would like to get some kind of system for a while now. It was not because I was worried that I was going to become a crime statistic though. I just liked having that extra layer of security attached to my house. I also liked the fact that it is so much more than just sensors and a keypad now.

There are so many different things that can be added to the home security system now.
Temperature control, automating lamps, and much more is now available. In addition to that, I like that it does more than just alert us to any danger from the outside wanting to get inside. Sometimes the danger is coming from within our own walls. Sure, a security system will alert me if someone is trying to break in while I have it turned on, but it is going to alert me of any indoor dangers too.
If there is a fire, it is going to alert the fire department if I am not responsive. It will also check carbon monoxide levels and alert the proper authorities if something is amiss and I cannot be reached. I live close to a stream that floods every now and again, and I can even set this up to alert me if there is rising water in my basement. I have never had that happen before, but I know that it is a real possibility anytime it rains real hard. Getting an ADT security system has been very beneficial to us as a family, and I am thrilled that we have it.
