All packages offered by ADT Home Security come with two sensors. Typically homeowners use these on windows or doors that are not well lit or are out of typical view. When the system is armed, it will notify you when the window or door is opened. Additional sensors can be added to any plan.  Some plans include wireless sensors, while others are hardwired within the system.
