I have ADT since Dec. 2012. They actually offered to negotiate the price by waiving the $99 installation fee and adding extra windows. I dealt with an outside company which apparently sells the ADT service "ADT authorized" rather than directly. Somehow I found them through a promotional flyer. They were extremely eager to receive my business. I was told by another company who also reps ADT that after one year your account can be transferred to another ADT authorized provider and you may get a less expensive monitoring fee a year later.
I've had the service now for one year for $45.99 / mo and I'm having one other company pursue my business now feeding me some BS line about old equipment " in the area" and how I can upgrade, etc. For some unexplained reason they know I have an alarm, and they are soliciting both my neighbor who also has ADT and me for their business. It's time for me to start checking on prices as my 18-mo commitment is coming up soon.
I suspect the prices are negotiable like most services after a year. All you need to do
Is simply ask upfront and periodically inquire thereafter so you are paying current lowest best prices. I learned when ordering this security system that dealing directly with ADT versus an "authorized rep" provided me different ordering options and the monitoring fee was about the same price.
I hope you found some of the info helpful.
Good luck to you.
