How ADT-Monitored Burglar Alarms Work

ADT-monitored burglar alarms work based on three tried-and-true technologies: electromagnetic circuits, passive infrared (PIR) motion detection, and frequency-sensitive microphones. These three technologies are used in different security sensor devices to help detect intruders when they attempt to break into your home.

Electromagnetic Circuits

ADT-monitored door and window sensors use electromagnetic circuit technology to send a signal to your burglar alarm system’s control panel when an intruder breaks the circuit by opening a door or window.

Infrared Motion Detection

In larger living spaces, ADT-monitored motion detectors use passive infrared technology to scan rooms for people who shouldn’t be there. Have pets? Don’t worry; these devices are pet-immune up to 60 pounds.

Frequency-Sensitive Mics

ADT-monitored glass break sensors use specialized microphones to listen for the audio frequency of shattering glass if an intruder decides to break into your home through a glass window.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a burglar alarm do?

Burglar alarms come in many shapes and sizes, some monitored by live security professionals and some not. Whether or not they’re monitored, pretty much all burglar alarms have a loud siren that goes off when tripped, alerting you of a potential intruder and deterring them from entering your home.

Monitored burglar alarm systems are preferable to unmonitored systems, because they alert someone (usually a trained professional at a monitoring center) who can call to make sure you’re safe and contact emergency first responders if needed.

How many decibels is a residential burglar alarm?

That all depends on the system or devices you’re using. ADT-monitored alarm systems measure at 85 decibels, which is loud enough to be heard virtually anywhere in most homes.

How long do burglar alarms go off for?

Different burglar alarms and home security systems may go off for different lengths of time.

If you have an ADT-monitored burglar alarm system, however, you will usually be contacted by an ADT monitoring representative within 10 seconds after your alarm goes off. Your representative will ask for your password to verify your identity, and confirm whether they need to contact emergency responders on your behalf.

Why is my ADT-monitored burglar alarm system beeping?

Usually, when this happens, it indicates there’s been a power outage or your system’s backup battery is running low. Refer to your system’s user manual for instructions on how to turn it off and replace your backup battery, or contact ADT for further help.
