Smart home security systems allow people to feel safe in their homes, and the ADT Pulse system offers incredible convenience and the ability to arm and disarm the system and display video monitoring remotely. Unfortunately, a glaring defect in the system allowed one ADT employee in the Dallas area, identified as Telesforo Aviles, to gain access to as many as 220 accounts and monitor them over the course of seven years.
When the company became aware of this heinous breach, after one user discovered an unauthorized email address that had access to their home system, ADT Security Services issued a statement informing customers of the breach. On April 23, 2020, customers learned that the former ADT employee had accessed hundreds of customer security systems over a 7-year period, from 2013 to 2020, including streaming security camera footage in private areas of the home.
As a customer affected by the ADT security camera breach, you have suffered an unspeakable violation. The very security system you trusted to protect you was used to spy on you instead. Who is to blame? Certainly the man who committed the act, but also ADT, the company that failed to put even the most basic security measures in place to prevent such abuses.
If you are one of the 220 ADT account holders or any other person who has been impacted by this breach, you have the opportunity to seek compensation through an ADT Dallas lawsuit.
