They say that home is where your heart is. That’s why you do everything you can to protect your home, like outfitting it with the best security system you can. With smart home, video, and mobile application technology, you now have more ways than ever to keep your loved ones and treasured possessions safe. But with so many options, how do you know which system to choose for you and your family?

You’ve probably heard of ADT, a well-respected national name in home security systems. But when it comes to something as precious as your home, you might feel more comfortable with a local, community-centered home security company like Premier Tech. Here’s a side-by-side comparison to help you find the best security solution for your needs.

Security Packages with Premier Tech

Ultimate Premier Home Security

At Premier Tech, we can both set you up with a brand-new security system or activate an existing system. We offer a wide selection of industry-leading security systems to keep your home protected with the most cutting-edge technology the 21st century has to offer. If you’ve recently purchased a new home with security equipment already installed, we can activate a wide variety of security systems for free and set you up with a monitoring rate of only $19.95 per month.

Our comprehensive home security systems can include:

  • Wireless window and door sensors
  • Motion detectors
  • Glass break detectors
  • Flood sensors
  • Key fobs for arming or disarming systems remotely
  • Medical pendants
  • Temperature sensors
  • Smart door locks
  • Garage door controllers
  • Smart plugs and light bulbs
  • Night-vision enabled outdoor security cameras
  • Indoor security cameras
  • Video doorbell cameras

We also offer you superior system management capabilities with the Edge Panel. This security panel fully integrates with your existing security and smart home automation systems and can be connected to an app on your smartphone to stream a live video feed from your security cameras. You can even disarm your system via the touchless Bluetooth control or using facial recognition. The Edge Panel is equipped with built-in glass break protection for your ease of mind.

We offer 4 different security packages, starting from just $19.95 per month: Smart Security Essential, Smart Security Complete, Smart Security Premier, and Smart Security Premier, and Smart Security Premier Ultimate. Any of our packages can be custom tailored to your home’s specific needs, and all include 24/7 police/medical/fire monitoring, app integration, an LCD lock pad, up to 5 window and door sensors, one motion detector, and yard signs and window decals to let would-be intruders know that your property is protected by the best Middle Tennessee has to offer.

Security Packages with ADT

ADT offers many products, but they are all their own brand, so you have fewer options to customize your home’s security system. If you’ve recently moved into a house with a security system manufactured by a company other than ADT, they will not be able to activate that system or provide you with monitoring. They are only able to activate and monitor their own systems, so you would have to purchase an entirely new system from them. If you already had an ADT contract at your old address, you will not be able to transfer it to a new location.

Some of the products that ADT sells include:

  • Cameras for both indoor and outdoor use
  • Touch screen panels
  • Window and door sensors
  • Motion detectors
  • Smart door locks
  • Keychain remote

ADT offers three different package levels, starting out at $28.99: Secure Home, Smart Home, and Video and Smart Home. All packages include 24/7 monitoring, yard signs and decals, a motion detector, a remote, up to 3 window and door sensors, and a digital panel. Remote access to your system via a mobile app is not included with all packages. An ADT system can integrate with other smart home technology including Hey Google, Kwikset, Z-Wave, and Amazon Alexa. When you set up a home security and monitoring system with ADT, you are automatically locked into a 36-month contract. Again, this contract is non-transferable if you move to a new residence within that 3-year period. If you choose an ADT home security system package, you will have some customization options available as well.

The Premier Tech Difference: Local Experts, Superior Customer Service

With so many high-end technologies available to home and business owners these days, what really sets home security companies apart is the level of customer service they provide. When it comes to taking care of our customers’ needs, Premier Tech has ADT beat by miles. As a local company, we have a vested interest in protecting your community—because it is our community too. When you call Premier Tech to help you install or activate your home’s security system, you’ll practically be talking to your neighbors. Our office staff know our technicians personally and can convey your needs directly to them and provide personal follow-up care.

ADT, on the other hand, is a large national company whose customer service department is located nowhere near your home in the Nashville area. As they attend to customers all around the country, you could easily find yourself on hold for an hour or more waiting for a customer service representative to be available to take your request. Once you get through, it could take a few days to set up a virtual tech appointment with a technician who could be located anywhere in the country, and then another few days to get a local technician out to your home to install, activate, or replace a component of your system. You may spend extra time on hold if you need to be transferred between multiple departments to complete your request.

Working with Premier Tech is a straightforward process. We’ll give you a free, no-hassle quote and never try to upsell you on components you don’t need. When you contact us, expect a prompt, professional reply from our staff. We offer free same day installation and always arrive on time. Before we leave, we’ll test your system and give you a complete walkthrough of how everything works so you can be confident you are protecting your home. We’ll even follow up with you after you’ve had your system for a few days to make sure you’re 100% satisfied. All our equipment comes with a lifetime warranty.


Premier Tech is known for its award-winning customer service and care. That’s why we have been awarded an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and a customer satisfaction award from J.D. Power and Associates. Our other awards include the Consumer Technology Association’s Smart Home Division Mark of Excellence for 2021, Angi’s Superior Service Award for 2021, and’s Best Home Security Company in Clarksville for 2022. Customers have rated us 5-stars on Google, Yelp, Yellow Pages, and Facebook business.

Your home is precious, and you can’t afford to compromise on protecting it from theft, fire, flooding, or other accidents. When it comes time to install or update your home security system, don’t settle for an impersonal nation-wide security company that’s more interested in selling you the latest gadget than making sure you and your community are safer. Premier Tech is home to Middle Tennessee’s experts in home security, and our technicians are committed to protecting your home like they protect their own. That’s the difference when you work with local security companies—when we make your home safer, we make our communities safer for all of us. Large national companies just don’t have that investment in our local communities. You can also compare us to other companies like Vivint and see how we stack up to the competition.

Request a callback from Premier Tech today to get a free, no-hassle quote about the home security system that’s right for you. You can count on us for fast, professional service and the best equipment on the market. We can customize a security package specific to your home and needs. All packages include a lifetime warranty, LCD control panel, and app connectivity to make managing homes easy.
