SJUK Exclusive: Making homes safer and smarter


Advances in remote alarm management brings customers peace of mind, says home security specialists ADT.

According to the Office for National Statistics, there were 192,060 home burglaries reported in England and Wales in the past year. That’s an average of 526 burglaries a day, or a house being burgled every 164 seconds.

With a disturbing 50% of domestic burglary incidents occurring when someone is at home, it has never been more important that people do all they can to dissuade a criminal attempting to infiltrate their home.

Whilst there are several companies that offer home security solutions today, there is only one that has been keeping families safe for almost 150 years.

Get more than an alarm with ADT

ADT has been looking after people and the things they hold dear since Queen Victoria was on the throne. Founded in 1874, home security is what ADT does best – because it is all it has ever done. That’s why 240,000 customers across the UK trust ADT to protect their home and loved ones. Here is what you get with ADT:

Professional monitoring

An ADT alarm never goes unanswered. As soon as its UK monitoring centre receives a confirmed activation, it acts. And with round the clock technical support and daily checks from the ADT Remote Operating Centre, it can ensure a customer’s system is always working. It is the support that never sleeps, providing every home with 24/7 security.

Luckily, ADT has a nationwide team of professional engineers to ensure that everything is installed perfectly, and your home is always secure from the moment it is activated.

Research suggests that you are four times more likely to die in a fire if there is no working smoke alarm. ADT’s smoke detectors identify smoke early so it can quickly contact you and the fire service should the worse happen.
