I am the type of person who has to know everything that is going on. I watch the news both in the morning and in the evenings, plus I check it out online a few times a day too while I am working. The world is just not a safe place anymore, and I like knowing where my little town as well as the immediate world around me stands. Because I do follow the news so much, it should come as no surprise that I have an ADT home security system installed at my house.
A person cannot follow the news closely and not see that little towns are getting to be as dangerous as some of the bigger cities. Times are tough, and people who are otherwise honest are resorting to criminal activity just to take care of their own families. I did not want to become a statistic like so many others were becoming, which is the reason why I first started looking at security systems. I knew without even doing any research that I was going to go with ADT because they are the most well known company to provide this type of security service to homeowners.
All I had to do was figure out which package I was going to get as far as equipment is concerned, and then I had to decide which monitoring package I was going to get. They do have a wide range of both, making it so people with any kind of budget can have a security system. I ended up getting a few extras with the equipment, but it did not cost me much more than the basic package. It is the same with the monitoring service. For just a few dollars more per week, I can get everything with the top package, and that makes me feel a lot safer!
