Do I need to notify you if I'm going away on holiday?

Yes, we would advise that you notify us, especially if we need to follow any special instructions while you are away. When our Control Room phones with feedback on alarm signals, they will always phone the landline first and then the cell phone number, so if we know that you are away from home, we know to contact you directly on your cell phone or any other number specified by you.

We only offer this service to businesses and you can contact our CIS [Customer Information Services] department on 086 12 12 300 for more information.

Alarm System

What do I do if I have a technical problem with my alarm?

Please refer to the alarm system user guide section for more information on your alarm system. Alternatively, you can contact our Technical Servicing department on 086 12 12 300 to book a service call. Calls can be logged with our Control Room after-hours, but we suggest that calls are logged directly with the Service Department during office hours. For prompt assistance, please ensure that you have your account number available.

What do I do if I have a technical problem with my alarm system and ADT is not my installation company?

You need to contact the installation company directly, or if you do not have their contact details, you can contact our Customer Care or Technical department on 086 12 12 300, for assistance.

What are my responsibilities as a client, to ensure that my alarm is working properly?

As per the Service Agreement, we require you to test your alarm system comprehensively at least once a month to ensure that our Control Room receives all radio and/or telephone signals.

How do I test my alarm system?

Phone 086 12 12 300, outside of peak times [07:00 - 09:00 & 16:00 - 18:00] and ask for our testing line. The operator will explain the process to you.

How long before I go away on holiday do I need to test my alarm?

You need to test your alarm system at least once a month to ensure that our Control Room receives all radio and/or telephone signals. This is recommended during non-peak hours. If you are going away on holiday and you haven't been testing your alarm regularly, we advise that you test your alarm two months in advance, to prevent a delay in attending to service calls. This is especially important during our peak period in November and December, when we experience an influx of service calls.

What does the Technical Call Out fee cover?

The call out fee covers the technician's first hour of labour. Parts and/or equipment are excluded from this fee and additional labour will be charged per hour or part thereof, according to the standard company rates.

What do I do if I need a technician to attend to my problem urgently, and you don't have an appointment available on the same day during business hours?

You will be able to request an after-hours service call, which will be charged at the current after-hours rate.

Why don't you notify me when you don't receive my signals?

If your radio transmitter fails or your telephone line is faulty, no communication with ADT is possible and we will not receive any alarm signals. If you suspect that your alarm is faulty, contact our Technical Servicing department as soon as possible on 086 12 12 300 to book a service call. This is why it is extremely important to test your alarm on a regular basis to ensure that our Control Room receives all radio and/or telephone signals, and to ensure that all panic buttons are in working order.

Is it better to monitor my alarm through my telephone line or through a radio transmitter?

We encourage you to use both, as the radio transmitter will act as a back-up if the telephone line is down.

Control Room & Armed Response

What do I do if I have an emergency?

Pushing your panic button will alert our Control Room about your emergency immediately. Alternatively, you can call our Emergency line on 086 12 12 301, and supply them with your details.

Since becoming an ADT client I have had building alterations done to my premises that may hamper the Armed Response officer's inspection of my property when responding to alarm signals [high walls, electric fencing, etc.]. Who do I need to inform?

Please contact ADT on 086 12 12 300, tell them which area you stay in and ask to be transferred to your Operations Area Manager. He will arrange for a senior response officer to meet with you to inspect your premises and make recommendations where necessary.

I have dogs on my premises, do I need to notify you of this?

Yes, please notify our Customer Information Services department in writing via e-mail on or via fax on 0860 100 034. Please include your name, surname and account number and inform us if the dogs might be aggressive.

How often do ADT vehicles patrol my area?

All ADT Armed Response vehicles patrol as often as is operationally allowable between call outs and try to maintain high visibility during peak times. All vehicles are equipped with and are continually monitored through a state of the art on-line satellite tracking system.

How do I make use of the Rendezvous service?

Contact our Control Room on 086 12 12 300, at least 15 minutes prior to arriving at your premises, and request an Armed Response officer meets you there. Please remember that emergency calls will take preference, so should the response officer not be there at the agreed time or if you arrive ahead of time, please contact our Control Room to enquire when the officer will be available or ask the Control Room operator to stay on the line with you while you enter the premises.

Are ADT vehicles allowed to speed and use sirens and flashing lights when responding to signals?

ADT must comply with the Traffic Act, which prohibits the above.

What do I do if I need an additional sign board or if I need to replace my sign board?

Contact our Customer Care department on 086 12 12 300 to arrange this.

What do we do if we recently had a burglary and the insurance company requires a report?
