How do I know what kind of ADT system I have?

Is your home or office outfitted with ADT’s top-of-the-line security system?

You may have a couple questions about your system down the road or want to upgrade your hardware to the latest technology, like ADT Pulse.

For us to properly assist you, we’ll want to verify with you the type of security system that you have. Many people don’t realize that ADT has several types of systems that customers have. 

Not quite sure which system you have?

No problem! The easiest way to identify what type of ADT system you have is to take a look at your control panel, especially your keypad. The visual layout of your control panel will help you identify your security system.

Let’s run through how you can figure which ADT system you have.

Security System Identification

To identify your personal ADT system, you’ll want to go ahead and locate your keypad because the features on your keypad will help you determine your specific ADT system.

For example, you’ll want to pay attention to whether your keypad has a logo, up and down arrows by the display, a drop down door, a raised numeric keypad, speakers, and more.

There’s a super easy shortcut if you have ADT Pulse also. Just log in to your ADT Pulse Portal and click on the system tab on the top right. Then read what the panel is on the top of that page. (It’s most likely one of the top two on this list, but there are plenty that aren’t.)

Let’s run through a couple descriptions of some of the most popular ADT systems to give you a better idea of how to identify your own system. One of these should be yours!
