How much does ADT cost monthly?

The first thing we’re going to discuss is how much does the ADT service cost on a monthly basis?

This is important for people who are deciding whether they should use the service or not.

For those of you who have already decided or are already using the ADT service, feel free to skip this section.

Though, if you want to stay and read about all the packages, you’re welcome to do that as well.

Alright, now let’s talk about the packages. There are three main packages. ADT Secure Home, ADT Smart Home, and ADT Video and Smart Home.

Let’s start with the ADT Basic package.

ADT Secure Home

The price of this package is fairly reasonable if you ask us. It’s $28.99 (price on the time post is published) per month. But, the price alone doesn’t tell you why it’s fairly reasonable, does it? Of course, not.

If it was that simple, you would just read the prices of all the packages and be done with it. But, since that’s not mature you’re not going to do that.

In case anyone is wondering why that is not mature, here is why. Because you don’t order food if you don’t even know what it is. As far as we’re concerned, you might be allergic to it, so strongly advise against it.

Alright, now let’s discuss what you get for $28.99. (price on the time post published)

You get the security equipment activation, 24/7 professional customer service, fire | carbon monoxide | flood monitoring services| If you don’t own any of these 3 devices you might think this feature is worthless, but it could still come in handy if you decide to buy one or more of these devices.

Now that you’ve seen what you get for the money, we bet you’re thinking to yourself, “it’s definitely a fair deal.”

ADT Smart Home

This one costs a lot more than the previous one. The monthly charges of ADT Secure are $45.99 (price on the time post is published) per month. As you can see the difference is quite significant.

So is this one worth it? Again, we’re gonna use the example of food. Say you’re going to a 5 star restaurant and ordering food, it’ll be quite expensive but would it be worth the experience?

We say it would be totally worth the experience, if you could afford it. Therefore, to see whether it’s worth it or not, we’re gonna have to take a close look at the features of this package.

Here are the features of this package. Everything that was included in the basic package + home automation + remote arming and disarming + instant alerts on your smartphone notifying you if any suspicious activity is detected + Z-Wave technology to power your smart home features + commands through the app. 

Now, judging by what you’ve read, it is fair to say that the price that looked enormous before looked pretty reasonable.

ADT Video and Smart Home

This is the last option on the list. The last dish on the menu. The last shop opened on the food street. The price of the ADT Complete package is not that high, compared to ADT Secure.

It’s $59.99 (the price at the time post was published) which is 30% more than the ADT Secure. The difference is good, but nothing huge at all. Ok, enough with the comparison.

Because we’re not going to know what’s included in this package by comparing it with other packages. Therefore, let’s talk about the features of this package.

The ADT completely involves all the features from other packages + Remote Security Video Upgrade + Video support + Video monitoring.

As you can see, if you want a few more advanced features compared to what ADT Secure offers, this one is the right package for you.

Does the ADT price increase in 2023?

Alright, so what is the case over here? Does ADT price increase with time or not?

It turns out, it does. It says in their contract that the rate of ADT service may increase after one year you start using it.

Other than that, ADT changed several package options and their prices as well.

They offer great features compared to other competitors. Same time they do have a slightly high price too.

With the 2023 economic recession, we can see these price increases all over the industry as well.

How can I reduce my ADT bill?

Well, first let’s discuss whether you can even reduce your ADT bill?

To reduce the bill, you’ll have to get in touch with the customer representative. Once you’re connected, ask them whether you can get a discount or a promotion.

Even if you’re a new customer, you may still get discounts or promotions.

But, for long-term customers, things are even better. They can contact ADT customer service and ask for a loyalty ADT discount.

Only customers who have been using the ADT service for over 12 months are eligible for a loyalty discount.


Yes, you can reduce your ADT monthly prices. But, you’ll only find out whether it’s possible for you to do it, by contacting customer support.
