So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Maybe new build already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you want to get a whole security suite? You may even currently use a system with another provider, but aren’t happy with their offerings.
Fortunately, you may be able to have a Springfield security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Moved Into A Home With Built-in Security Hardware Already Wired In
When you purchased your new house, you learned it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your hardware is very outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still visit your house to verify that the components are still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the hardware, you may be able to get a reduced monthly plan.
Yet don't feel like you're boxed into your previous system. Many new devices can work with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and get devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also upgrade components for a more up-to-date experience.
You’d Like To Build An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component
A while ago, you may have installed an indoor camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you’d like a complete Springfield security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY device, can you add it to the new security system?
A lot of the times yes -- but no promises. Products such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a simple set up to pair the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that cheap or older security equipment may not work will new systems and will have to be replaced. Go ahead and contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can show you which older components can work with the control panel and mobile app.
You’re Looking To Keep Your Current Alarm Components But Change Monitoring Services
If the monitoring service you use now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about switching companies without changing your equipment. First, you’ll need to find out if your current service uses proprietary components. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your components. That might feel like a pain, but at least you'll get the best, newest products that may include more features and be easier to use.
If you can get a new provider, then the change may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the change. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or worn devices, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for you .
