There is a group of kids that are riding around from the sullivan county "license tag" area. They are knocking on peoples door saying hey can you help me out! dont worry im not selling anything! They are offering adt security services at no cost "free system" as long as you leave the sign up and keep the monthly bill going for monitoring. BUT that is not free and they are selling something... Be careful, you will stuck in a contract with no service, biggest scam I have ever seen... They have a few vans, but notice the company is called sercurewatch. Trust me they will rip you!

They do not rip you off ! I had this same system installed. I pay about 35.00 a month for it to protect my home from Fire, theft and medical help. It is an ADT product and it works well.(you could pay more depending on how many doors, windows, etc. you have) It has actually alerted me of a break in where the thief was apprehended. It also gets you up to 10% off of your home owners policy. They "ARE" giving it to you, because if you call ADT and try to purchase it, you could pay up to 2000.00 depending on the size of your home. They charge nothing, with the exception of 99.00 which registers you with your local 911. These are the facts.

for one 35.99 is a basic system 40.99 & 43.99 are the same but has a 2 way voice and 41.99 44.99 47.99 are the same cell backup

a system from adt corp cost about 850 not 2000 the monthly rate is 1 dollar a day, and no not everyone gets 10% thats based on your home owners insurance.

also they can give u the extra equipment if the sales men wants too, he gets paid commission only, so hes there to rip you.

and if u add up 35.99 with free system and 30 with 850 system "also adt corp uses a whole entire different system by homewell not some ge simon xt crap." ur difference is going to be a more saving with adt corp.

By reading your post I am not seeing how you label SecureWatch as scammers. If you know about the contract (everyone should always read a contract before signing!) and know their pricing then explain how they are scamming people. Did you expect something for FREE?.... Also, SecureWatch is a ADT Contractor not a independant security company like Murrell Burglar Alarms in Morristown.

We went thru ADT. It was 248.00 for the system and they installed everything . Got both doors, all bottom floor windows, and the garage door. Also got the little panic button key chains to call 911 . Monthly bill is 24.00 even.

IMHO, motion detectors work great, the alarm is inside the house, warning you someone is outside. 2. Motion detectors in the house turn on the video recording and shoot it off-site, for both front and back of house, 360 d. of coverage. 3. Set-up is next to nothing, monthly bill, nothing. Other companies will take your monthly money, yes they may call the police, but as hard stetched as they are, how long before they get there, 20-30 minutes?

How are you in a contract with no service? Something is wrong here. You should have contacted Securewatch, and if they did not satisfy you, you should then have gone to ADT. You can not be in a contract without service. No one forces you to do anything you don't want to do and no matter how much someone may lie to you, if they in fact did, you should know better and read you agreement. None of these companies exist to rip you off. They exist to make a profit and provide service. They all operate in a similar manner. The car lot example below is perfect. You can get a better deal at another car lot. You need to take matters into your own hands, contact the proper personnel and become satisfied. There is no reason they can't work out your problems without you being happy.

If you pay 850 plus 35.99 a month for 36 months, that can't possibly be more savings than the latter?

My husband works for Sexurewatch ADT as an installer, in fact it is cheaper then ADT corp.

The door to door sales man can infact wave the activation fee if you push hard enough, what they do is you pay it then when the installer comes, they bring you a pre paid credit cars with the amount of activation.(99.00$)

They are getting in Honeywell touch screen panels next month and you can call and recieve one for a small fee because they are in fact more expensive due to a hifher quality and better technology. Your monthly payments will not go up. If you choose to keep what you have thats fine too its up to you.

Though I can not speak for every person working there, my husband is doing honest work and does not rip anyone off. He installs the system where you want it and WHEN. believe me he is never home due to people wanting it in the same day and its 11 at night.

Listen I dislike Securewatch just as much as anybody but, you people don't have anything better to do than rip on the internet a out some company you have no idea about get a life. Sorry your redneck is showing. SCAM look it up retards I can't say I like the way this company does business card but I know its Not a scam they actually give you what you pay for. Yes you can get it cheaper somewhere else but isn't that true of anything you buy from a toaster to a new car or for most of you inbred retards a shotgun draped in a rebel flag. You are missing the big pic they are trying to secure homes and they go door to door to do it and yes they work on commission. What that means boys and girls if they don't sell they don't eat. So the next time you see a door to door person out on the street you should stand aside because there job and trust me on this one is harder than you can ever wrap you little government tit sucking little pill popping head around. I am sorry that I didn't have any pictures in this so most you could understand it.

This is true!!!!! 3 days ago I had a job at the Charleston, S.C. location. These people will lie to you straight up. You don't get paid unless you make a sale. I worked from 10a-8pm. CRAZY. You are locked in to a 3 yr contract for 50 a month, doing the math, after 3 yrs you just BOUGHT that "free system", they "gave to you". total scam, do not open your doors and even have police in the area if you see them paroling around. This group here ignore "NO TRESPASSING AND NO SOLICITING" signs. There vans are tore up and ghetto ed.

Actually ,when you sign up through corp you pay a 3yr contract at 44.or 47.99 a month as well as any equipment they charge for,so nooooooooo you arent paying for the system...also in the add they have now they contact your front and back door.but any additional doors they charge 100 a piece...do your reasearch before you speak please ...also to anyone who is paying a bill and not being monitored..you need to call 1800-adt-asap.there was obviously a problem .adt will make it right if you are persistent enough.

How in the world do you come up with 50 months in three years? You sign a 36 month contract to secure your home you pay adt not securewatch adt pays securewatch. So everyone who thinks this is a scam company your crazy call ADT up and ask them yourselfs.

Securewatch is not a scam everyone, there are scammers out there but we are not one. Promotions do work on commission and they do go door to door, so does many other companies are they scammers too. It is simple we help out ADT and they pay the company for getting them a new customer. 36 month contact at one of the bundle prices 35.99, 40.99, 41.99 and 47.99 each one has its on features. Our normal packages includes 3doors 1 motion 1 smoke and a keyfob for you to disarm your system from outside. If you look in your sales ad on Sundays they have the same DSC panel that we inform the customer about our door sensors are smaller then what the sales ad shows. In the ADT commercials they show you everything your getting and says its about a dollar a day do the math it is near abouts $1.76 a day for a 41.99 package. Also read the fine print it says that activation is required before installation that is starting at 99.00 dollars but it depends on your beacon score. Come on people open your eyes and hear us out we trying to help you and feed our famlies at the same time. I been this company for three years and this is the first time I responded to this crap but I have had enough with people saying we scam them. Read your contract know what your signing. we do not force you to do!

ADT will not service what they sell i bought a system from them and one of the door connecters came off and the battery failed in the box and when i called i was told that they no longer carried that system ( it was installed in 2010)and can't not service the system i would have to have a new one installed for 800.00 dollars that since i already had a ADT contract i did not get the system for 99.00. now if something happens to your system you are just out of luck.
