ADS Security Overview

adssecurityADS Security operates out of Nashville Tennessee and serves over 70,000 customers in 7 states. They have offices in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee and Mississippi. They are ranked as the 26th largest security firm and are ranked in the top 100 best security companies by SDM for more than 20 consecutive years.

ADS has an award winning monitoring service which is the area where they stand out the most. They are the only company in their market to be certified by the CSAA as a five diamond monitoring service. Using the most modern technology available along with highly trained employees, they are able to respond to calls efficiently and quickly. Less than 1% of security companies earn a five diamond distinction.

ADS Customer Reviews

ADS Customers reviews are some of the best in the industry. The high level of professionalism and the continued service after the contracts are signed are highlights for the company. If there is a malfunction with the systems, responses are fast and courteous. The high quality systems and excellent track record with installations result in smaller than normal false alarms. When true emergencies do occur, ADS has a monitoring service that is one of the best.

The only concern customers have is when they sign a contract and then find themselves relocating out of the ADS service area, the customer is still obligated to fulfill the terms of the contract. Addressing these concerns with customer service before the move will provide the best results to determine if an exception can be made.

This remote access has been shown to save up to 30% off the electric bill. The ability to lower the thermostat while the family is away and then turn it to a comfortable temperature just as the family returns significantly reduces power usage. The additional ability to control lights and appliances increases the savings.
