Can I Get a mobile Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now you’d like to upgrade to an integrated security suite? You might even already have a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their offerings.

Luckily, you might be able to order a Mobile security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Bought A Home With Existing Security Components Already Wired In

When you purchased your new house, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your hardware is very dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A technician will still come to your house to ensure the equipment is still functioning and update your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the hardware, you may qualify for a lower-cost monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're limited to your outdated security system. A lot of new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to add on devices, like security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also switch out equipment for a more up-to-date experience.

You’d Like To Add A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

In the past, you may have installed an exterior camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a complete Mobile security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY component, can you integrate it into the new security system?

Many times yes -- but not always. Components like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. After that, it's a quick process to sync the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that cheap or older security devices may not integrate with new systems and will have to be replaced. Just give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which prior devices can work with the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Current Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Companies

If the monitoring service you have now isn't what you wanted, you might want to switch companies without upgrading your system. First, you’ll need to learn if your current company utilizes proprietary equipment. If they do, then changing security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your equipment. That can be a pain, but when it’s done you'll have the best, newest technology that may have more features and be easier to control.

If you can switch, then the change may be fairly simple. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may find yourself responsible for two security contracts! You'll have to switch out old-fashioned or unusable equipment, but the monitoring change should go smoothly in most cases .
