ADT alarm systems can provide peace of mind whether you're at home or away. The chime feature on an ADT alarm sounds whenever a door is opened and the system is not armed. This ensures that if you're home, you can hear whenever someone enters or leaves your home. The chime can be turned off if you don't want to hear it constantly as people come and go. Just follow a few simple steps.
