Frequently Asked Questions About ADT & Ring
Which is cheaper, ADT or Ring?
It all depends on what products and services you choose. Ring is the more flexible of the two companies, so it’s more likely to offer a security solution that fits your needs with a minimal investment.
However, if you want a fully-equipped security system with many peripherals – and ADT’s contract length doesn’t scare you – ADT is likely a better choice. You’ll probably pay less over time and have a greater variety of equipment and package options to choose from.
Do ADT and Ring offer DIY installation?
ADT customers are required to pay for professional installation, but Ring security systems can be either DIY or professionally installed.
Will I have to sign a contract with ADT or Ring?
ADT professional monitoring plans require a 36-month contract term. Ring allows you to pay month-to-month, but gives discounts if you pay for the entire year up front.
