ADT Security, a popular security company in the U.S. and Canada, holds roughly one quarter of the security market share in the U.S. ADT has been the leader in this industry for decades. If you sign up for their service, a certified technician will install door and window sensors, motion detectors, and those easily recognizable blue ADT signs in front of a customer’s home.
Security systems are much more affordable for the average home owner nowadays. What used to be found only on wealthy properties is now available to everyone for only $40 to $50 a month. But what if you don’t want to pay that monthly charge for equipment and services? The extra cost may not be worth it to someone looking for a cheap alternative. But they can always consider buying a yard sign.
Large blue ADT yard signs on a property indicate that the home is protected by the company’s security service. They serve as a warning to any potential burglars that if they try and break in, a loud siren will go off and the cops will arrive in no time. While not 100 percent effective, if you have the sign on the lawn and your neighbor does not, a burglar is likely to choose the easier option and skip your house. How does a burglar know whether or not you actually have a security system installed? Why would he take that risk if there’s a sign, clearly visible?
Time is precious to an intruder and seconds matter. If it will take longer than a couple minutes to enter a home, he will likely go elsewhere. There are a few simple low-cost ways to protect your home, such as better outside lighting, installing a bolt lock on the door, or smart landscaping, but adding a sign for just a few bucks provides an extra signal that thieves should stay away because there might be a security system installed with a loud siren. The National Burglar and Fire Association reported that 90 percent of convicted burglars would skip a house with an alarm system.
Typically, in order to get one of the signs you have to be a customer of ADT. The security packages include a decal and sign when you pay for service. You can even get replacements signs. The contract for new customers states that ADT yard signs and window stickers remain the property of ADT and may be removed by them if the service is terminated. This doesn't mean that signs aren't available to everybody.
Blue ADT yard signs are constantly available on eBay for about $25. Sometimes you can even find them through Sears, Amazon, or Walmart. For just a few bucks, you can give the illusion that you have a monitored system. But just having a sign isn't the same as having an actual security system. There's a reason why ADT has become the most recognized security brand in the country. They offer peace of mind for customers through various hardware installations that protect your home from invaders. It is because they are so effective and popular that just having a sign has become a cheap alternative to the real thing.
