ADT Monitored Alarm Installed £99, 3 yr monthly £21.49 Free 7" Tablet @ Firsthomesecurity

Found 20th Feb 2012
Had this installed last week and helps reduce home insurance at the next renewal.
The E Pad is a China import and auction sites sell the for £80, so not really worth £199.

The ADT Quick connect with a Free EPad worth £199. The ADT Quick Connect has been designed as an entry level home security system that enables you to protect your home and be alerted in the event of your alarm being activated. The ADT Quick Connect is a monitored alarm system so your home is watched over 24 hours a day. ADT will contact you, your close friends or family relatives if your alarm is activated from as little as £21.49 per month. With a basic ADT Alarm package starting from as little as £99 supplied and fully installed by ADT, you can relax knowing that when an intruder sets the alarm off, your alarm won’t be ignored. Protect those things most precious to you and install an ADT burglar alarm today!

im going to do you a favour and not vote but this will get cold very quickly
cheaper to get one fitted with an auto dialler from home.
Terrible company! Terrible customer services, issues with them dialing into your phone line to check the system which isn't stated in the contracts. Some people have had phone bills that have amounted to 200 pound a month. I had a service done by them, two days later, one of the batteries went in the PIR sensors in my kitchen, they wanted to charge me a 95 pound call out charge to replace it! Avoid ADT at all costs!

I have heard very bad things about their monitored service, they also camp out in our local Morrisons, as others have said people you can expect a phone bill in the region of £100 a year from misc phone calls your alarm makes
if I was going to do anyones I would go with AMCO they charge £349 up front but it is £15 a month 1 year contract and it is a 2 way comms, so if your alarm goes off they talk to you/burglar...like you get on flats when you are trying to get in the building. They also link your Fire alarms as well, now that seems worth it, and they also install a fused faceplate so the unit can not just be "Unplugged"

They put a roaming SIM card in the auto dialer so my phone line is not part of the system. Thanks for the comments though.

They were dialing into my phone line just after 1am each day and each time it cost me about £1.91 everyday!

Love how lazy some companies marketing departments can be.

I'm sure there are people out there who would be easily swayed into buying something they may not actually need just for the lure of a free tablet. I'm not one of them though.

It would work out cheaper just to go and buy a tablet!
lol muppet
I'd like to see more alarm deals on here as while this doesn't sound good, the comments have been very useful. I've been considering one for some time but found it hard to know where to start!
Probably best you get one installed by a local professional engineer. Forget the monthly monitoring system.

Amen to this. Works out a LOT cheaper overall and frankly the 'monitoring' services 99% of these companies offer are a total joke.
This was the conclusion I was coming too but good to hear everyones opinions all the same.
The burglar alarm when we moved in has the ability to phone us but it isn't monitored. Not really sure the point of ADT phoning your family and friends when your alarm goes off, is it not enough that it'll annoy the neighbours? Or do they expect my family to rush round there with baseball bats?

go here http://www.alarm-monitoring.co.uk/alarm-offers/

they do a £96 package, but the £349 package with 2 way talk, like you see in these horror movies look great, whilst not the cheapest they offer a honest service, though the only reviews I can find have all been 5star, would be good to find some negative ones. they even made the York paper as they saved someones life, as they challenge the burglar albeit over the tannoy

....it's also worth considering getting a GSM module fitted too. That way if there's a problem with your phone line at any point (or the thieving scum bags cut your phone line), you will be contacted via SMS if the alarm is triggered.
The only thing you MUST do is get a keyholder registered with the police, or make sure someone close buy can turn it off, my Father had an Alarm fitted, he went on holiday, came back a week later and it turned out the alarm had triggered the day he left, anyway he found a snotty note to call the police and basically all that had happened is people kept reporting it as a nuisance noise (as they would) and they said next time "they" would break in to shut it off, if he did not register a keyholder
I thought about the keyholder thing but I don't know/trust my neighbours enough. Not that I think they'd nick anything but I'm worried they would stupidly leave the key, alarm code and all my details together so if they got broken in to, the thieves would find everything they needed to rob me too!

I dont think they have to be too close, I think the police just want someone they can call to come turn it off

Just had a 20 minute phone conversation with these guys, they seem too good to be true, basically it a alarm goes off they immediately listen in, and he says they can hear any noise so if they can hear footsteps they immediately challenge for a password, if no password is forthcoming the call the police straight away, if you leave there is a £55 engineers fee to come out to disconnect from their service, the downside is the price on the website is a bit misleading unless you have a small property as we have a old victorian house which is quite long we would need 2 listening devices, but at leat he was honest and said that, he said if we could go with one but they must make sure they can listen in to the house properly

he also said they have never increased the monthly fee for existing customers

Just wanted to know if the alarm told you that you've been robbed?

Sorry couldn't help myself, I'll get my coat.
Just buy the Yale DIY unit for around £130 it does exactly the same thing, even calls upto 3 designated phone numbers should the alarm trip, which is what ADT do anyway but charge the earth for the privelage.
How much does an alarm lower your home insurance anyway?
Every time you set the alarm it phones adt on a premium cost phone number and then when you turn it off it calls again,a local shopkeeper used to turn it on and off very frequently during the day while popping out to do local deliveries......£1000 a year phone bills.

10% at best, and probably only if you have a managed solution
in my case 15 quid per year...
anymore updates on this ? I just priced up using http://www.alarm-monitoring.co.uk/alarm-offers/
and it came to £945 - yes ok i was making sure all areas were covered including the Garage - this is assume would be a wired system and this justfying the cost of the labour etc
