If you are on the market for a home security system, you’ve undoubtedly examined different package options from other monitoring providers. After all, you are looking for the perfect fit for your home in order to keep your home and loved ones safe from a variety of dangers, such as burglaries, carbon monoxide, fires and extreme temperature fluctuations. When it comes to packages provided by ADT monitoring, you’ll first notice that there are four different package options to choose from—which means we have something that caters to virtually any home security need.

ADT packages come equipped with cutting-edge technology for the ultimate home security protection. You see, ADT monitoring has the constant resolve to be the pioneer in bringing households the latest security components available today. We don’t provide dated products—just take a look at how we go above and beyond to deliver the best technology to homes throughout North America:

ADT Pulse

ADT Pulse is at the forefront of where technology and innovation meet. Both the ADT Pulse and ADT Pulse + Video packages provide remote home monitoring. This means that your alarm system can be remotely managed from any location, using the Pulse App on an Internet-enabled smartphone or tablet.

The ADT Pulse package, allows homeowners to remotely arm & disarm the security system, adjust the thermostat, turn lights and appliances on & off, as well as receive custom alerts and notifications.

The ADT Pulse + Video package allows homeowners to remotely arm & disarm the security system, as well as view video footage remotely from any location. Now you can know what’s going on in and outside your home with the simple glance of your smartphone or tablet.

You’ve now learned about ADT Pulse, but ADT monitoring still has additional technology in the mix. These include the utilization of two products: Ring video doorbell and Nest Learning Thermostat. Both of these products further enhance home security protection, while also delivering added convenience and functionality to any home.

Ring

The Ring video doorbell is Wi-Fi enabled and serves two purposes: alert the homeowner of when someone is at the door (which it can also do remotely on a smartphone) and two: provide video footage of who is at the front door. Since there is the video footage component, homeowners can scrutinize whether or not they want to answer the door—without even getting up to see who is there. And if the homeowner is away from home, they’ll be notified when someone has rang the doorbell and be able to remotely talk to whoever is at the doorstep.

Nest Learning Thermostat

Nest Learning Thermostat propels energy-efficiency and greener living. As a smart, learning thermostat, it learns your preferred room temperatures during the different times of the day. It also has remote capabilities, which allows homeowners to adjust the thermostat from any location using their smartphone.

ADT monitoring has been in business since 1874 and has led the way in home security system since it’s founding. Technology is at the center of keeping you safe, which is why you should depend on a provider that only delivers the best—and that is ADT monitoring. It’s how we stand apart from the rest.

3 Eco-Friendly Tips for your Home

Published March 23rd, 2017 | By

Transforming your home into an eco-friendly home doesn’t have to be difficult, especially with some tips on how to go green. Though it might take some adjustments, the benefits of green living are substantial, and you’ll notice them over time. The payoff is great, even when it comes to saving money on utilities.

Here are a few tips on how to transform your home into an eco-friendly home:

1. Add Additional Landscaping

Depending on where you live, you may or may not have a lot of landscaping. Newer residences in particular tend to be scare when it comes to having trees and bushes. If that’s the case, get prepared to roll up your sleeves and do a little planting. Landscaping not only adds some curb appeal, but it also provides several additional things: 1) air purification 2) natural cooling and 3) extra protection.

Plants help absorb carbon monoxide and in turn, they produce oxygen. With all the pollutants that we put in the air, we need all the air purification that we can get! When it comes to natural cooling, having trees in particular provide shade. In summer months especially, any extra cooling is certainly welcome. You wont have to withstand the blaring heat with some planted trees that will grow and mature with time. And lastly, trees and shrubs also add extra protection in the event of things like a car crash or even an outdoor fire. With a little strategic planning on your part, landscaping can truly go a long ways.

 

2. Use Solar Power and Eco-Friendly Products

 

Today, many homes are deciding being equipped with solar panels to cut back on the use of fossil fuels. We’ve depended on fossil fuels for over a century and we continue to use it at an alarming rate. Unfortunately as popular as fossil fuels are, they are polluting the planet and emit greenhouse gases (which causes global warming). Homes with solar panels save around 20 percent on monthly utility costs. Overtime, that amount is staggering! Also, when you invest in solar, there are government tax incentives, which is great to claim when you file your taxes.

If you don’t want to go so far as getting solar for your home, you can still make some minor everyday energy-saving modifications, which will help make your home more eco-friendly. First, look for Energy Star products. These range from appliances (dishwashers, washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc.), electronics (TVs, stereos, tablets, etc.) building products (windows, doors, insulation, etc.), and more.

How far can an Energy Star product actually help? Well, one Energy Star light bulb alone uses 75 percent less energy and lasts much longer than a standard light bulb. Looking for that Energy Star seal of approval will greatly impact how much energy is being used by your home—saving you countless dollars in the process.

 

3. Invest in Smart Technology

Smart technology isn’t just for those who are tech-savvy. Believe it or not, many smart products are made for virtually anyone to use and are accessible by easy-to-use interfaces, such as an app. Smart technology doesn’t have to mean complicated…but it CAN help your home become more energy efficient.

Can you believe that 7 percent of people’s salaries go towards paying energy costs? Think of all the heating and cooling, and lighting required for daily living. Utilities are expensive and prices will only go up—unless you can curb how much is being consumed. Smart technology allows you to have a range of products such as smart thermostats smart appliances and smart lighting.

The central part of these amenities is that it allows you to remotely management whichever—whether it’s the thermostat, appliances or lights from any location (even if you are away from home). This is particularly great if you’ve forgotten to do things like decrease the thermostat on your way out, or if you’ve forgotten to turn off a light. You can save nearly 20 percent on energy consumption with a smart thermostat alone.

Again, going eco-friendly has its numerous advantages. Taking these steps will get you well on your way to better, cleaner living.
