Nationwide home security programs include ADT, Stanley Security, Protect America, Vector Security and Protection 1 Security Solutions. ADT is the largest home security company in the United States as of 2015, and it has been in business for over 100 years. It has more than 200 locations across the United States and Canada, and it monitors security systems from its six monitoring centers.
ADT's Pulse product allows homeowners to monitor and control their security systems remotely; it also enables customers to adjust home lighting and temperature. ADT's traditional home security system protects homes from burglary and sounds an alarm in the event of a fire or rising carbon monoxide levels. If burglary, fire or another emergency triggers a home security system, it alerts ADT monitors, who immediately contact homeowners and police.
Stanley Convergent Security Solutions offers a number of home security services, including video surveillance products and intrusion detection. The company has many locations across the United States and Canada, and it installs security products from manufacturers such as Honeywell, Lenel, Genetec and Axis. Stanley monitors its systems from its customer service centers and alerts police and homeowners in the event of a burglary or other emergency in the home. The company's advanced video surveillance products include Internet-capable cameras that stream surveillance videos to absent homeowners.
Protect America sells home security systems with no installation fees. The company, which has locations across the United States, offers door locks and other products that can be controlled using a smartphone. Homeowners can monitor streaming video surveillance on smartphones that are equipped with Protect America's home automation software application.
