So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the security of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your custom home already has a wired security system. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to use a whole security system? You might even currently have a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their service.
Fortunately, you may be able to have a Worcester security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Moved Into A Home With Security Equipment Already Wired In
When you walked through your new house, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re the owner, it's time to activate it. Unless your components are very dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. An installer will still come to your home to make sure the components are still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the equipment, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly plan.
However, don't worry that you're boxed into your old security system. Many new devices can work with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to add on devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also switch out equipment for a more modern experience.
You Want To Build A Full Security System Around Your DIY Device
At one time, you may have purchased an exterior camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a full Worcester security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY device, can you add it to the new security system?
Many times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Components such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. After that, it's a simple set up to connect the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that low-priced or very outdated security devices may not cooperate and will have to be swapped out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which prior components can connect to the control panel and mobile app.
You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm Components But Change Monitoring Services
If the monitoring service you have now isn't what you expected, you might consider changing providers without replacing equipment. First, you’ll need to find out if your current company uses proprietary equipment. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That can feel like a pain, but when it’s done you'll get the most up-to-date products that may include more features and be easier to use.
If you can switch, then the transition may be more straightforward. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll need to change out old-fashioned or unusable equipment, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for most customers .
