How much did you pay for an ADT system?
I was given a price quote for an ADT home security system. The price I was quoted was: $100 per glass break detector $150 per smoke detector $75 per door or window contact $299 for the 'wireless package'--1 keypad, 1 keyfob, 2 contacts, 1 motion detector The service would be $35/monthly. What have others paid for their security systems? Are these prices negotiable? I think they seem fairly high; is there a way to just buy the basic ADT package and add on things like glass break, smoke detector, etc., purchased elsewhere? Thank you for any help!

If i were you i'd look in to other companies. What many will do is set you up with a certain amount of free equipment for free, and you just pay the monthly monitoring rate. They will then sell your account to a company that actually monitors your system like ADT or Monitronics. These companies usually only sell during... More
