History – As a company, ADT has been in business for over one hundred and thirty years. That’s longer than several states have been part of this country. The company started out as American District Telegraph and was formed through the affiliation of 57 district telegraph companies. By the late 1930’s, ADT was already recognized as the leader in the field of emergency call services (burglar, holdup and fire alarms).
The 1940’s brought about automation in the field of fire alarms, and by the 1970’s the first automated Central Station was operational. This Central Station would eventually develop into today’s Customer Monitoring Centers. ADT recently came out with the touch screen control pad, 24 hour mobile security for your car, and a 24 hour medical monitoring for senior citizens and disabled people.
Overall, if you have the money and want the quality, go with ADT corporate.
