Wireless technology means no-hassle installation
The only drilling involved in an ADT home security installation will be a few small holes needed to mount your digital keypad.
With a wireless home security system, you won’t have cords or cables running through your walls. The components communicate by radio signals rather than wires, which makes it easier for your installer to position the motion sensors farther apart and provide broader coverage.
Once the installation is complete, you get to take advantage of a list of comprehensive features.
The various sensors included in your system cover specific areas, or zones, and each one has an identification number. When one of the sensors is triggered, its zone number will be displayed on the keypad.For instance, you could assign the motion sensor that monitors your front door to zone 01. If the sensor detects the front door being opened, you will see zone 01 displayed.
Your ADT system features two burglary protection modes, STAY and AWAY.
- STAY Mode: This setting monitors the perimeter of your home so that you can move around inside without triggering the sensors.
- AWAY Mode: This function monitors the inside of your home as well as the perimeter.
Both STAY and AWAY settings have a delay feature that gives you time to safely enter your home after arming the system.
The system also lets you bypass particular zones. Setting the system to CHIME mode will alert you to activity around protected doors or windows while the alarm is deactivated. Otherwise, you’ll need to activate the burglary function on the keypad using your security code.
This option is an active feature of your security system. An alarm will sound if the system detects conditions indicating smoke or fire.
When your system detects a threat, the alarm will sound for 15 or more seconds and the keypad will display the affected zone or zones. The alarm will sound again after the zones are displayed. This sequence will repeat itself until you enter the disarm code.
During your home security installation, the technician will assign you a four-digit number called a "master user" code. You will use this code to arm and disarm your system. You can also assign as many as six secondary codes — for trusted visitors like relatives and babysitters.
Thanks to home safety features like these, your ADT monitored alarm system offers not only enhanced security but also maximum convenience.
