Frequently Asked Questions About ADT & Nest
Does ADT require a long-term contract?
Does Nest require a contract?
No, you don’t have to sign a contract to purchase the Nest Secure system. If you opt into professional monitoring through Brinks, there is a month-to-month plan you can choose.
What types of packages does ADT sell?
ADT sells three packages: Traditional, Control and Video. The Traditional Packages starts by giving you all the basics, and each subsequent package adds on a little more – smart home automation, cameras and more. Each package is customizable. Research ADT packages.
What types of packages does Nest sell?
Nest only sells one complete security system package with monitoring available, the Nest Secure Alarm System. However, it offers a large number of standalone smart home security devices.
Do I have to sign up for Brinks Monitoring with the Nest Secure system?
No. You can purchase just the Nest Secure system without signing up for professional monitoring. In that case, you would be responsible for monitoring the system yourself using the Nest mobile app.
