After you have your ADT security system installed, you may be interested in adding another camera or two to your system setup. Don’t worry, this doesn’t require a visit from a professional installer. We’ve got instructions on how to install the camera yourself as well as other detailed information regarding the specs of this device.
This article focuses on ADT’s indoor camera but stay tuned for articles covering the outdoor and doorbell cameras. If you don’t have ADT service yet, you can sign up here with one of our recommended providers.
ADT security systems are sold through authorized resellers*. This means the company you use to get your ADT system could be different than someone who lives in the neighboring county. Therefore, your costs and customer service will vary, even when the equipment, contracts and general installation tend to be similar.
*Our ADT links take you to Protect Your Home, which is an authorized reseller for ADT.
