How to Terminate ADT Service

If you no longer want ADT to provide your home or business with security monitoring, you need to officially terminate your service. Otherwise, ADT will continue to bill you monthly. Terminating ADT service is a quick process, but if you are still under contract, you may have to pay an early termination fee. Generally, the early termination fee is 75 percent of the remaining monthly charges through the end of your contract term.
