Quoted a price based on our current system and the price more than doubled because all of the current equipment (cameras and smoke detectors) with the exception of the sensors are obsolete.  We were expecting to only, worse case, have to upgrade the panel which was upgraded two years prior.  We were obviously (purposely) misled to renew our contract with ADT.  We had cancelled the contract several months ago and started using RING.  We wanted to replace the RING Cameras and decided to get a door bell camera and an outside camera for the back of the house and reactivate our ADT.  But, we ended up having to replace the existing cameras, panel and existing smoke detectors to have a useable system.  Vivint would have been a better option because ADT has become liars and no one in customer service can hear you.  Buyers beware!

 My communication with your Company! Please understand that I was told that the only upgrade that would possibly be needed was the panel upgrade and I agreed to $497 if that had to happen. When the Technician arrived, the current cameras and the smoke detector would not work. SINCE YOU COULD SEE THAT AN UPGRADE WAS NEEDED, YOUR SALES AGENT PROBABLY ALSO SAW THE NEED FOR AN UPGRADE BUT CHOOSE TO MISLEAD ME. THE TWO YEAR OLD PANEL HAD TO BE UPGRADED. ADT CONSTANTLY UPGRADES THE TECHNOLOGY SO IT LEAVES YOUR CUSTOMERS IN A BAD POSITION AND OUT OF WAY MORE MONEY THAN YOU ARE PREVIOUSLY QUOTED. ADT HAS NOW BECOME A COMPANY THAT CAN’T BE TRUSTED. ADT GOT ME THIS TIME, BUT NEVER AGAIN! Just now need to warn other customers! In hindsight, Vivint was probably a better option for my Mom’s House.

We do see upon review of the account that an upgrade of the system was needed as you upgraded to the system to include Google Nest devices. We see a discount was applied to the order in the amount of $961.50 bringing the installation down from $2108.30 to $1215.60 prior to applicable taxes. Best Regards, Eileen L. W.
