So you have an existing security system and you want to add the reassurance 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 want to use a full security package? You may even already own a system with another company, but are unhappy with their service.
Fortunately, you may be able to have a Newark security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.
You Moved Into A House With Security Components Already Wired In
When you walked through your new house, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, it's time to activate it. Unless your hardware is significantly outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. A specialist will still come to your home to ensure the components are still functioning and update your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the equipment, 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 security system. So, feel free to add on devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also upgrade your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.
You Want To Add A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Component
A while ago, you may have installed an indoor camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Newark security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that older component, can you sync it with the new security system?
Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices such as 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 connect the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or older security devices may not integrate with new systems and will need replacement. Go ahead and give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which older devices can work with the mobile app and control panel.
You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Current Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services
If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you wanted, you might think about switching providers without replacing hardware. First, you’ll need to see if your current provider has exclusive equipment. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That might seem like a hassle, but in the end you'll own the latest and greatest products that may have more features and be easier to control.
If you can switch, then the change over 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 change out outdated or broken devices, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for you .
