Can I Buy A Jonesboro Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to use a full security suite? You may even currently own a system with a different provider, but aren’t happy with their service.

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

You Moved Into A Home With Security Equipment Already Installed

When you bought your new home, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your hardware is vastly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A technician will still visit your home to verify that everything is still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new equipment, you may be able to get a reduced monthly bill.

However, don't assume that you're stuck with your former system. A lot of new accessories can work with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and purchase devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also switch out equipment for a more up-to-date experience.

You’d Like To Incorporate A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Item

In the past, you may have set up an exterior camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Jonesboro security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY device, can you integrate it into the new system?

Many times yes -- but no promises. Devices such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a simple process to connect the device to your ADT control panel. However, low-priced or older security devices may not cooperate and will have to be swapped out. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can help you know which older equipment can work with the mobile app and control panel.

You Want To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the security service you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about switching providers without upgrading your hardware. The first thing to do is see if your current service utilizes proprietary equipment. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That can be a hassle, but at least you'll own the most up-to-date technology that may include more features and be easier to manage.

If you can switch, then the change may be more straightforward. Just check that you don't have a previous contract before you make the change. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or unusable equipment, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy for you .
