So your house has an existing security system and you’d like to add the security of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has a security system wired up. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now you want to use a full security package? You might even already own a system with another provider, but aren’t happy with their current service.
Fortunately, you might be able to order a Logan security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.
You Moved Into A House With Security Components Already Installed
When you purchased your new home, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is significantly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still go to your home to make sure the equipment is still functioning and update your touchscreen control hub. And because you currently own the hardware, you may be able to get a discounted monthly bill.
Yet don't feel like you're limited to your outdated security system. Many new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to upgrade to new devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also replace equipment for a better experience.
You’d Like To Add A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component
A while ago, you may have set up a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you want to upgrade to a full Logan security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?
A lot of the times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Products such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Then, it's a quick set up to connect the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that low-priced or older security equipment may not cooperate and will have to be replaced. Just contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can help you know which older devices can work with the mobile app and control panel.
You’d Like To Retain Your Current Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services
If the security service you currently have isn't what you wanted, you might want to switch companies without replacing system. The first thing to do is find out if your current company utilizes proprietary components. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That can feel like a hassle, but at least you'll get the latest and greatest equipment that may include more features and be easier to use.
If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be somewhat easy. Just make sure that you don't have a current contract before you switch over. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll need to switch out old-fashioned or broken equipment, but the monitoring switch should be smooth for most customers .
