Our History

Fidelity ADT has been responding to customer needs for over 150 years. Way back in 1874, the American District Telegraph Company, ADT was formed through the merger of several small telegraph delivery companies.

In the beginning, ADT messengers would collect and deliver telegraphs from customers’ homes or businesses. As technology progressed, customers could send an electric signal and a Fidelity ADT messenger would respond.

Though times have changed, the mission of our business remains constant. When a customer is in need, a signal is sent and we respond. Our history of protecting and providing security spans over 100 years to the very birth of the private security industry.

In 2017, ADT was bought by the Fidelity Services Group, forming Fidelity ADT and bringing with it a proudly South African heritage and a strong business model to propel the organisation forward into a truly South African context.

Today, Fidelity ADT Security provides fire, cleaning and security services to thousands of households and businesses across South Africa’s diverse communities and to millions more across the world.

Our international footprint means that every customer gains access to the leading and latest technologies available, while our team of experts are drawn from the very communities in which they serve.
