So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has a wired security system. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to upgrade to a full security system? You may even currently use a system with another company, but aren’t happy with their service.
Fortunately, you may be able to have a Lawrence security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Bought A Home With Built-in Security Components Already Installed
When you bought your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. An installer will still come to your home to ensure everything is still functioning and update your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the hardware, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly plan.
Yet don't worry that you're boxed into your outdated system. A lot of new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, go ahead and upgrade to new devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also replace equipment for a more modern experience.
You’d Like To Incorporate A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Item
A while ago, you might have bought an indoor camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you want to upgrade to a comprehensive Lawrence security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY piece of equipment, can you integrate it into the new system?
Often yes -- but not always. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Then, it's a quick set up to link the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that low-priced or older security devices may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which prior components can pair to the mobile app and control panel.
You Want To Keep Your Existing Alarm System But Change Monitoring Companies
If the monitoring service you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might want to switch providers without replacing system. The first thing to do is see if your current company utilizes exclusive components. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your devices. That may feel like a pain, but at least you'll have the best, newest equipment that may include more features and be easier to use.
If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may find yourself responsible for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace outdated or broken equipment, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy for you .
