Can I Order an Auburn Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has a security system wired up. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to use a whole security suite? You may even currently have a system with another provider, but don’t like their service.

Luckily, you may be able to get a Auburn security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.

You Bought A House With Built-in Security Hardware Already Installed

When you walked through your new house, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still visit your house to ensure the components are still in good repair and update your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly contract.

However, don't worry that you're stuck with your previous system. Most new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to add devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also upgrade equipment for a more modern experience.

You Want To Add A Complete Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device

A while ago, you might have purchased a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you’d like a comprehensive Auburn security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that older device, can you integrate it into the new security system?

Many times yes -- but no promises. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's a simple process to pair the item to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or older security equipment may not work will new systems and will have to be replaced. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which DIY equipment can work with the control panel and mobile app.

You Want To Keep Your Current Alarm System But Change Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you wanted, you might think about changing companies without switching system. The first thing to do is see if your current service uses proprietary components. If they do, then changing security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That might seem like an inconvenience, but in the end you'll have the best, newest products that may include more features and be easier to use.

If you can switch, then the change may be somewhat easy. Just make sure that you don't have a previous contract before you make the change. You may find yourself on the line for two security system contracts! You'll have to replace old-fashioned or broken equipment, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for most customers .
