Home Security Company 'ADT' Employee Arrested, After Spying On Over 200 Customer's Home Cameras...

ADT Employee Arrested

Telesforo Aviles, a 35-year-old, was working as a support technician for ADT, a provider of home security services.

Aviles's job involved installing home video surveillance cameras at customer premises and configuring the devices to work exclusively with the ADT Pulse application.

But prosecutors said that Aviles strayed from company policy, and started adding his personal email address to clients ADT Pulse accounts.

Prosecutors said Aviles accessed more than 200 customer's home CCTV systems on more than 9,600 occasions...

Aviles was charged in April 2020 and pleaded guilty yesterday.

He currently faces a sentence of as long as five years in jail and a fine of up to $250,000, as indicated by court archives. . He was conditionally released earlier this week.

ADT notified its customers of the incident when they became aware. The New York Post revealed that the organization attempted to persuade clients to consent to a privacy arrangement in return for money, so word of Aviles' activities wouldn't hit the web.
