Layer Your Defenses

March 3, 2022

If you have ever had an extended conversation with me about home defense, you have likely heard me say that you must layer your defenses.  This means

  • Plant thorny shrubs below windows
  • Use deadbolt locks (and lock your doors)
  • Have external motion sensor lights
  • Dogs can be a deterrent
  • Alarm Systems

Recently, I met Phil Haverland from ADT Security, and I cannot say enough great things about him.  ADT offers security, life safety, video cameras, and home automation.  ADT has been in business 148 years.

Advantages of using ADT includes

  • 24/7 monitoring – 9 Owned and Operated monitoring centers
  • Monitoring through cell towers – with battery back up
  • Same day and next day service
  • Quality service plan all equipment coved for life
  • ADT’s sole purpose is human protection (Home/business security Health devices and cyber security)
  • All devices made by Honeywell
  • Six Technology (2-way encryption)
  • Google partnership – ADT system works with “Hey Google” – Nest product integration
  • Discount on homeowners’ insurance + Mover’s discount program
  • Local corporate rep available for questions, help with app questions via Zoom OR in-home.
  • Discounts/promotions on other ADT security (Business security and CCTV – ADT health life alert monitoring)

While I encourage everyone interested in firearms to achieve training.  However, we cannot use force to protect “stuff.”  An alarm can protect your “stuff.”
