ADT (now Telus) Monitoring Benefits
The value that comes from the peace of mind in knowing that the professionals at ADT (now Telus) are always alert to any and every potential danger that might befall your home and family is more than worth any expense that you could ever incur through a monthly monitoring plan. There are a multitude of options available, from the most basic protection to options offering full protection against any and every contingency.
With a monitored home security system, you can protect your home against:
Loss from Theft and Burglary
Most often when a burglar is surveying a neighborhood for the easiest locations where they can break in without being detected, they prefer houses that appear vulnerable over those that display obvious signs of protection. Even though the ADT (now Telus) signs will serve as your first line of defense to deter any theft, whenever there is any sign of unauthorized entry, ADT (now Telus) will notify local Police to ensure rapid deployment to your home and minimize potential loss.
Protection from Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is highly toxic, and can rise to lethal levels in a very short period of time. According to the *CDC, more than 500 people per year die from carbon monoxide poisoning, and thousands more are treated for non-fatal poisoning. The ADT (now Telus) Carbon Monoxide Detector alerts your system if high levels of CO are present, thereby insuring your family's safety, especially in those times when everyone is sleeping, and more vulnerable to this danger.
Loss from Fire and Flood
One of the greatest threats possible that can virtually wipe out all your belongings, as well as threaten your family's safety is the danger of fire. Through ADT (now Telus) fire and smoke monitoring products, the Customer Monitoring Centre can notify the Fire Department of any detections even if you're not home. An ADT (now Telus) Flood Detector can also notify the Customer Monitoring Centre if there's any sign of rising water through a broken water line, overflowing washer, or an external source such as incoming flood waters.
For many senior citizens, living at home is a choice that carries significant benefits for independence, but moments can arise where medical personnel need to be only a press of a button away. The ADT (now Telus) Companion Service offers a 2-way voice communication system that connects directly with ADT (now Telus) in case there's ever a medical emergency that requires immediate attention.
