ADT Security System / adt is fraud. total waste of money

1 NY, United States Review updated:

ADT doesn't monitor the system at all. The transformer they provided to us wasn't working and we lost the battery because of that. They couldn't detect weather our system was still working or not. I called them after three weeks to notify them about the failure. The reply i was getting them was bull-###. I wonder how easy it would be for a bugler to break the system from out side and get into home, or what would happen if fire broke out in my house... They don't even monitor all these. We have been having the system installed for almost two years now, and we have not received the yard sign that says secured by ADT. We have requested at least 5 times. but, Fu... A... takes our complains do nothing about it. We got the system in october 2007 and it is july 2009. No service, No yard sign.

After being fed-up with the service, i asked them to cancel my contract and now they are charging the contract termination fee which is more that my payments for remaining months. So, i decided to keep the service as it is cheaper that way.

Never go for ADT system. I hope they all die in hell!!! Do some research on the other competitors. ADT sucks!!!

    i agree with you that my friends and me were also cheated, but the worst that they don't allow us to terminate the contract.

    I spent about $800 on a ADT wireless cellular security system. It broke after about 2 years. Every "zone" was reporting a failure. Happened all at once. ADT told me that the batteries were dead. Despite my disbelief that 17 devices could all have their batteries go out at the exact same second, I spent $70 on new batteries for the wireless unit. Called ADT that the system was still inop. Told me they would get somebody to call me about repair. Nobody calls. Finally after 6 months of being dumped into ADT managers voicemails and no calls back, I cancelled my service (contract was long expired). Received another bill - called back and told them I had cancelled the service. Said they had no record of it. Told them to cancel it. Next month get bill for 2 months. Call again. Say they have no record and I have to pay the bill. Cancel it. They actually stop for 1 month, but then the next month start billing again. Sent certified USPS letter stating cancellation. Shows it go there and they say they never got a letter. Now they are turning my account over to a collection agency. These guys are mindless drones who could not give a rip about the customer. I pleaded with them to come repair my system and I would start paying again. They tell me know that since my account is past due they will not repair my system. Utter insanity. Stay away from these folks.

    This is happening to us at the moment. ADT calls us one day to tell us their is a system failure. When they come out to fix it we come to find out the system failure may have been over the 2 years. So we were basically paying for a service we did not have! Not they keep calling us weekly to tell us we have a system failure and then try to charge us for the service call. They tell us oh don't worry you won't have to pay it just dispute it. WHY BILL US THEN! ADT is a fraud! Someone needs to to a investigative report on them!!!
