ADT’s DIY Play for LifeShield: Why Analysts Are Bullish on the Deal

Among the driving forces behind increasing DIY consumer adoption is cost. Owning a security system can seem a luxury for consumers due to the associated monthly fees that may come with purchasing a system. In fact, for professionally monitored security, cost is the most commonly cited reason for canceling services, explains Dina Abdelrazik, a research analyst at Parks Associates.

“DIY security systems offer an opportunity for consumers to acquire a system at a lower cost. Most new self-installed security systems reduce the installed cost of security systems,” she said. “Parks Associates data find that consumers installing security systems themselves report that the leading motivator in installing the system was because it saved them money.”
