ADT Obtains Permanent Injunctions Against Vision Security And Security One For Deceptive Sales Practices

ADT settled its lawsuit against Florida-based Security Networks and its Utah-based affiliate Vision Security, requiring the companies to pay $2.2 million in damages. The companies jointly market and sell systems to homeowners across the United States. Separately, ADT settled its lawsuit against California-based Security One, requiring it to pay $1.5 million in damages. The lawsuits claimed that Security Networks, Vision Security and Security One misled ADT customers to believe the companies were affiliated with ADT and that customer alarm systems required upgrading.

ADT filed a motion for contempt against Vision Security after learning about additional claims of deceptive sales practices, despite a previous preliminary injunction against the company banning such practices. Vision Security ultimately agreed to a permanent injunction, prohibiting it from using deceptive and misleading sales practices when dealing with consumers. ADT also required Security One to agree to a permanent injunction, banning the company from using such practices.

“ADT pursued these actions to help give consumers in the electronic security and automation market clarity on the products and services they choose to help protect their families, homes and businesses,” said David Bleisch, chief legal officer at ADT. “Maintaining the trusted reputation of the electronic security industry begins with companies behaving ethically.”

“We will pursue additional lawsuits against other companies that misrepresent ADT or its services to consumers,” said Hannah Lim, chief litigation counsel at ADT. Lim noted the Ohio Attorney General also recently filed a lawsuit against Vision Security for alleged misstatements to consumers about its identity.
