ADT Certified Under SAFETY Act


ADT Security Services, a unit of Tyco Fire & Security, has received full SAFETY (Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies) Act coverage from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for its Electronic Security Services.

The designation of ADT’s Electronic Security Services as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology and its certification as an Approved Product of Homeland Security provides liability protection to ADT and its anti-terrorism technology customers in the event of a terrorist act.

According to ADT, the SAFETY Act designation comes at a time when the federal government is looking toward information technology solutions that emphasize security as well as cost effectiveness.

Passed by Congress as part of the Homeland Security Act, the SAFETY Act provides incentives for the development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies for homeland security and helps ensure that the threat of liability does not deter the development of technologies that could significantly reduce the risks and effects of a terrorist act.

ADT’s anti-terrorism technologies include access control and credentialing, perimeter monitoring, motion detection, alarm system notification and monitoring, security patrols, video monitoring and recording, and automatic fire and smoke detection and monitoring.
