So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to get an integrated security system? You may even already have a system with a different provider, but don’t like their current service.
Fortunately, you might be able to get a Louisville security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Bought A House With Security Hardware Already Wired In
When you bought your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is very outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still visit your house to verify that the equipment is still functioning 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 contract.
However, don't feel like you're limited to your old security system. Many new devices can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to get devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also switch out components for a better experience.
You’d Like To Incorporate A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item
In the past, you may have ordered a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you're ready for a full Louisville security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY piece of equipment, can you add it to the new system?
A lot of the times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Components like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a quick process to sync the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that low-priced or very outdated security components may not work will new systems and will need replacement. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which older devices can work with the control panel and mobile app.
You’d Like To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services
If the monitoring company you currently have isn't what you expected, you might think about changing companies without replacing system. First, you’ll need to learn if your current service uses proprietary equipment. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That can feel like an inconvenience, but at least you'll have the most up-to-date products that may include more features and be easier to control.
If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll need to replace old-fashioned or unusable equipment, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for you .
