If a intruder tries to sneak in, your security system will notify your monitoring professionals at ADT while the warning siren warns everyone inside. You even have the ability to receive smartphone alerts when a surveillance camera picks up a lurker.

By using keypad locks, you can allocate each renter their own code number that will no longer work when they vacate the property. If past occupants return and use their old code on the keypad, you will receive a notification on your smartphone.
