New Alexa Skill Let's You Show ADT Pulse Who's Top Dog

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Wed,Jan 04,2017 @ 03:47 PM

Like millions of families across America, we invited Alexa to moved in with us. We're flat out smitten with her. At the moment, she happily co-exists with our ADT Pulse system that we also adore. But soon... actually very soon, Alexa and ADT Pulse will work together to make our lives easier. 

If you haven't met Alexa, she is the personality and virtual assistant for Amazon. She is most commonly found on Amazon's devices Echo and Echo Dot. If that still doesn't ring a bell, you'll recognize her very popular, distant cousin Siri. Siri's the personality and virtual assistant for Apple.

Think You Have Nothing to Steal… Think Again… What About Identity Theft?

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Tue,Oct 25,2016 @ 03:31 PM

"I don't have anything to steal," says Jonathon to the security consultant while discussing home security.

It's a common response one hears as a security system consultant. "We're just starting out," "We are minimalists and most of what we have is not worth much," similar statements are made to reflect that even in the event of a break-in, the monetary value of what might bet taken is small. 

While this can be true, this picture shows a safe that was in our own Bill Wood's clients' home. A couple that did not think about their identity being stolen and now all of their important papers are in the hands of a burglar. This safe was tucked away in an Attic. 

Having your personal papers stolen can lead to identity theft. Information as simple as the mail on your counter can lead to months of being drug through hell as someone else assumes your identity and wreaks havoc on your credit, bank accounts and life.

2 Simple Ways to Get FREE ADT Monitoring

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Tue,Oct 25,2016 @ 03:03 PM

"How," you ask, "Do I get FREE ADT Monitoring?"

Here's one option, imagine this:

Pierce, your neighbor drops by at 11:36pm to use your cell. His power is out, his cell is dead and he's got a huge client meeting in the morning... only if he confirms before 8am that is. As you open the door... because you are literally the nicest neighbor on this planet, the ADT Pulse activated lamp comes on. After Pierce makes his phone call, he asks if the light is wired to the door.

"No, it's ADT." You say... after all, your not exactly chatty Kathy at 11:30pm.

"Oh, I been thinking about getting an alarm. Did you like the company?"

You think for a minute, "Yes. Actually, their rep Brandon came out and it was one of the best customer service experiences we've had."

"Cool," he says... "Can I get their number?"

You might have actually glared at him...

He gets it... "Not now, tomorrow is great. You go back to bed."

Pierce leaves, he gets the phone number and a HUGE client thanks to you. You get a Visa gift card for $200 in about 6 weeks thanks to him. That pays 3-5 months of your ADT monitoring, depending on your service level. 

This actually happens all the time! Clients tells us their friend "just noticed" their alarm. Many times, people will ask about it. IF we've done our job and earned your trust, your part is simple. Hopefully it doesn't happen at 11:30pm in your case. 

A second option is for professionals that interact with homeowners, check below to see if you qualify to be one of our referral partners and earn many referral rewards. Rewards that many professionals gift back to their clients keep them coming back to you again and again. Check out the Referral Partner Programs section below.

Four No-Nonsense ADT Specials That Will Make You Leap for Joy

Posted by Taniqua Pino on Thu,Oct 13,2016 @ 09:33 AM

There's two kinds of people when it comes to your home's security system and ADT Specials. There's those that pay the first price they see. Then there's those that love yard sales, they've haggled over the price of a $1 sombrero in some tiny tourist town south of the border or those that merely watched a TV show where someone argued with a guy named John until John paid him to take a 1971 RV off his hands. 

We figure you are the second person. Mainly because you are reading this post. We get your need for a quality product at a price that will make you burst into song.

Posted by Greg Barker on Mon,Oct 10,2016 @ 05:13 PM

This last week, I read the article in Angie's List Magazine about FAST FIRES. It impacted the way I think about home fire safety for my own family and your family. The article was written by Paul F. P. Pogue and titled Material Menace. It is about how three decades ago, you had 17 minutes to get out in a home fire... now with modern homes, you have three to four minutes. WOW... What's Changed?
