ADT vs Spectrum Intelligent Home (5 Fast Facts to Know)

You want to secure your home with the latest security tech. But which do you choose? In this post, we’re comparing providers ADT vs spectrum intelligent home.

You deserve a secure home.

But when you’re doing your research, it can be hard to figure out which home security is right for you.

That’s why we created this guide to compare ADT Home Security and Time Warner, which is owned by Spectrum Intelligent home.

Here are five fast facts you need to know.

Services Offered

ADT is a home security company. That means that you’ll have to go other places to get other services like cable and phone.

But Spectrum Intelligent Home offers all sorts of features, including phone and cable, along with its Time Warner Security. This is all put into a convenient bundle with a single price.

Keeping up with bills can be a confusing and harrowing experience. Spectrum will help to minimize this by helping you to only pay one.

Because of the convenience, we’d definitely recommend Time Warner Security to anyone looking to avoid paying too many bills all at once.

Installation Fees

ADT has a hefty installation fee. Depending on your package, it can go from $100 to over $200!

Spectrum Intelligent Home doesn’t have any fees like that. In fact, installation of Time Warner Security is done professionally but is completely free!

Things like service costs can ramp up quickly, making what seemed like a deal at first costly.

Time Warner Security comes out on top in this way.

Contract Length

ADT usually has contracts that are a minimum of 2 years. However, some have reported that ADT forced them into a 3-year contract.

By contrast, Spectrum Intelligent Home offers much shorter contracts, with the minimum being 18 months. This is much shorter than what most companies offer.

Shorter contracts allow buyers more freedom when it comes to choosing a home security system. If they decide they don’t like it, they don’t have to worry about cancellation fees when the contract is short enough to outlast.

If you’re still shopping around, Time Warner Security is a great choice for you.


ADT is controlled by a wall-mounted keypad. The simplistic design is easy to use but doesn’t allow for a lot of customization when it comes to services.

Spectrum Intelligent Home, however, offers a state of the art touch pad when it comes to controlling the Time Warner Security system. The intuitive design makes it very easy to use.

If you’re curious about how to use or get the most out of our services, our customer support will be more than happy to walk you through it.

The features of this control panel make Spectrum the clear winner of this round.
