What Sets ADS Security Apart?

ADS Security has been protecting homes in the Southeast for 28 years. They provide service for residents in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Mississippi. ADS Security takes pride in meeting individual customer needs with customizable security systems, rather than selling one-size-fits-all packages. Additionally, the ADS monitoring center has Five Diamond Certification from The Monitoring Association and a top-rated mobile app customers can use to monitor their home from anywhere.

ADS Security wants to make its customers happy. It has a referral program which gives you $50 for every customer you refer, a moving program which helps you transfer your system to a new residence, as well as a loyalty program. The loyalty program lets you earn free upgraded equipment over time. ADS Security doesn’t publish their equipment and monitoring prices online. You can speak with a sales specialist to request a quote on pricing.

    Our Take

    The Surveillance Package is ADS Security’s recommended package. This kit comes with everything in the Traditional package plus a doorbell camera and an indoor security camera for the kind of video surveillance that modern households expect. Again, you can add on extra devices as desired.

ADS Security Equipment and Features

  • Security Panel

    ADS Security has a one-touch security panel with an easy to read screen. It displays live video from interior and exterior cameras, and gives you live updates when doors and windows open or close. It also arms in seconds.

  • Smart Electronic Lock

    Lock and unlock your door from anywhere with ADS Security’s app. Smart locks communicate with the app, and you can check your door’s status using Google Assistant. The lock also sends alerts when people come in and out of the door.

  • Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Sensor

    The smoke and carbon monoxide sensor is always connected to ADS Security’s smart home system. It sends up-to-date alerts to your security panel or mobile phone.

  • Door and Window Sensor

    ADS door and window sensors keep you updated in real-time if a door or window is opened. Alerts go to your security panel or smartphone.

  • Motion Sensor

    Motion sensors detect unexpected movement in your home, monitor for break-ins, and send information to the security panel or ADS’ monitoring center.

  • Indoor Camera

    Indoor cameras monitor your home’s interior and send live streaming video to your phone through the app. You can check and see if someone really broke in, or if your dog just knocked the cushions off the sofa again.

  • Doorbell Camera

    This compact HD camera lets you see who’s at the front door – even if you’re not home. It adds security to any door with its streamlined and narrow profile.

Why We Recommend the Surveillance Package

We recommend the Surveillance Package as it provides access to both motion detection and home video video surveillance. You’ll be able to get motion activity alerts for your camera(s) as well as an alert in the event your alarm is triggered. While you may have to pay more for this package, we think it’s well worth being able to check in on your home.

ADS Security Moving Program

The ADS Security Moving Program can help if you ever decide to move. ADS Security makes moving easy by allowing you to choose what you’d like to do with your security system. If you’d like to keep and move your current ADS security system, you can choose that option, or you can opt to get a free system instead.

ADS Security Loyalty Program

With the ADS Security Loyalty Program, each year you retain the provider’s service, you earn a $50 reward. You can use your earnings to purchase smart home devices with the provider or even upgrade your system with new equipment. Some of the devices you can use your earnings towards are security cameras, smart thermostats, lighting automation, and more. You can earn up to $500 towards rewards. Easily check your balance online by logging in to your My ADS account.

ADS Security Referral Program

One of the best perks about the ADS Security Referral Program is that you could earn a lifetime of free monitoring with the provider if you make at least 7 referrals. You can tell your friends, family members, or colleagues about ADS Security and submit a Referral Form online. If one of your referrals becomes a customer, you’ll earn $50 for their sign-up (which is what you’ll earn for each referral). Once you hit your 7th referral, you’ll get free professional monitoring for the life of your service with ADS Security. There are additional terms that may apply.
