ADT is the winner of this round as they offer a 6-month money back guarantee. You’ll have a lot of time to try ADT’s services and decide if it works best for you. ADT security wants to ensure that you are satisfied with your purchase. If you are unhappy, the company will refund your installation and monitoring fees. Vivint offers customers a shorter 30-day refund period.
When it comes to home automation, Vivint takes the prize. With Vivint home security, you can add on smart home devices and capabilities with the basic Home Security System package. All that’s required is to sign up for the Smart Home Service professional monitoring plan. This plan provides you with access to a smart thermostat, garage controller and more. With ADT, you can access home automation features in the Control and Video Packages but not the basic, Traditional Package.
