In what way are they promoting it heavily? Do you think 20/20 was manipulated into making this?
If somebody came to my door now and said they were from ADT I might give them a hard time until they proved it. Once they proved it though it would be hard not to talk to them for a bit.
btw: Tyco sales up 30%, according to latest top 50 list.

John, perhaps ADT is wanting people to perceive them as the victim. This seems all too common in the home monitoring industry. I would imagine that Alarm.com is not too happy with Choice Home Protection after seeing this video.
I believe the quote "worst year we have seen so far" was referring to the number of "lying and swindly people" switching over accounts. I don't think this necessarily reflects to their overall sales or health.
First reason ADT promotes this is to educate its customers to beware of these tactics.
Second reason, I suspect, is ADT will push for legislation preventing this tactic in the future.
