So you have an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you purchase an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to upgrade to a complete security suite? You may even currently have a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their offerings.
Luckily, you may be able to order a Hammond security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.
You Moved Into A House With Existing Security Equipment Already Wired In
When you purchased your new home, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is very dated, you can most likely reactivate it. A specialist will still go to your home to ensure the components are still working and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be eligible for a lower-cost monthly plan.
However, don't assume that you're boxed into your outdated system. Most new components can work with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, feel free to purchase devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also upgrade components for a more modern experience.
You’d Like To Incorporate A Full Security System Around Your DIY Component
A while ago, you might have set up a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you’d like a full Hammond security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY component, can you integrate it into the new security system?
Often yes -- but no promises. Devices such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Following that, it's a simple process to link the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that bargain-basement or older security equipment may not work will new systems and will have to be replaced. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can figure out which older equipment can pair to the control panel and mobile app.
You Want To Keep Using Your Current Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services
If the security company you have now isn't what you expected, you might think about switching providers without upgrading your equipment. The first thing to do is see if your current provider uses exclusive components. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your equipment. That can be an inconvenience, but at least you'll get the most up-to-date technology that may be more sensitive and user friendly.
If you can switch, then the transition may be somewhat easy. Just check that you don't have a previous contract before you make the switch. You may be on the line for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out outdated or unusable components, but the monitoring change should be smooth for you .
