So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Maybe your new home already has a wired security system. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you want to use an integrated security system? You might even currently have a system with another company, but aren’t happy with their service.
Luckily, you may be able to order a Duluth security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.
You Bought A House With Security Components Already Installed
When you purchased your new house, you learned it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is very outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still visit your home to ensure the equipment is still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the hardware, you may be able to get a reduced monthly bill.
Yet don't worry that you're boxed into your outdated system. Many new devices can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add on devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also upgrade equipment for a better experience.
You’d Like To Build A Complete Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item
In the past, you might have installed an exterior camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you're ready for a complete Duluth security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY device, can you add it to the new security system?
Many times yes -- but not always. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a quick set up to connect the item to your ADT control panel. However, low-priced or very outdated security components may not work will new systems and will have to be replaced. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which older components will work with the control panel and mobile app.
You’re Looking To Retain Your Current Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Providers
If the security company you use now isn't what you expected, you might consider changing companies without replacing equipment. The first step is to learn if your current service utilizes exclusive components. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That can feel like a pain, but at least you'll get the latest and greatest products that may have more features and be easier to manage.
If you can switch, then the transition may be fairly simple. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may be responsible for two security contracts! You'll need to replace old-fashioned or worn components, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy for you .
