So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has security equipment. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to upgrade to a full security suite? You might even already own a system with a different company, but don’t like their offerings.
Fortunately, you may be able to order a West Palm Beach security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.
You Moved Into A Home With Built-in Security Components Already Wired In
When you walked through your new home, you learned it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your hardware is very dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A technician will still go to your home to ensure the equipment is still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the equipment, you may qualify for a reduced monthly bill.
Yet don't feel like you're stuck with your old security system. Many new accessories can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and upgrade to new devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also switch out your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.
You Want To Build A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item
At one time, you may have purchased an indoor camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want to upgrade to a complete West Palm Beach security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new security system?
A lot of the times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Devices such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. After that, it's a quick set up to link the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that bargain-basement or very outdated security equipment may not cooperate and will have to be swapped out. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which older equipment can be used with the mobile app and control panel.
You’d Like To Keep Using Your Current Alarm Components But Change Monitoring Services
If the security service you currently have isn't what you expected, you might want to switch companies without upgrading your equipment. First, you’ll need to see if your current company uses exclusive components. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That can feel like an inconvenience, but in the end you'll get the latest and greatest technology that may be more sensitive and user friendly.
If you can get a new provider, then the change may be somewhat easy. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or unusable devices, but the monitoring switch should be smooth in most cases .
