So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe your new home already has security equipment. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to get a full security suite? You might even currently use a system with a different provider, but don’t like their offerings.
Fortunately, you might be able to order a Lynchburg security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Moved Into A House With Existing Security Equipment Already Installed
When you bought your new home, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still go to your home to ensure everything 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 discounted monthly plan.
Yet don't worry that you're limited to your outdated security system. Many new components can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to upgrade to new devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also upgrade equipment for a better experience.
You’d Like To Incorporate An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Device
At one time, you might have installed an indoor camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want the benefit of a full Lynchburg security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you integrate it into the new system?
A lot of the times yes -- but not always. Components like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a quick set up to connect the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that bargain-basement or very outdated security components may not work will new systems and will have to be replaced. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which older devices can pair to the mobile app and control panel.
You Want To Keep Your Current Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Companies
If the security service you currently have isn't what you wanted, you might consider changing providers without replacing hardware. First, you’ll need to see if your current company uses proprietary equipment. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That might seem like an inconvenience, but in the end you'll have the best, newest equipment that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.
If you can get a new provider, then the change may be fairly simple. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may find yourself on the line for two security system contracts! You'll need to switch out outdated or unusable equipment, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy for you .
