Can I Buy a Pensocola Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your new home already has a wired security system. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to use a complete security system? You may even currently have a system with a different provider, but don’t like their current service.

Fortunately, you may be able to order a Pensacola security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Bought A Home With Built-in Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you toured your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re the owner, it's time to activate it. Unless your components are very outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. A technician will still come to your home to check that the components are still in good repair and update your touchscreen control hub. And because you currently own the equipment, you may qualify for a reduced monthly contract.

Yet don't assume that you're limited to your previous security system. A lot of new accessories can work with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to add devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also upgrade equipment for a more modern experience.

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

A while ago, you might have ordered a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a comprehensive Pensacola security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off component, can you integrate it into the new security system?

Often yes -- but not always. Devices like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a quick set up to sync the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that cheap or very outdated security components may not cooperate and will have to be swapped out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can help you know which DIY equipment will work with the control panel and mobile app.

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

If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you wanted, you might consider changing providers without replacing equipment. The first thing to do is learn if your current provider utilizes proprietary components. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That might seem like a hassle, but at least you'll have the best, newest products that may have more features and be easier to control.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you don't have a previous contract before you make the change. You may be on the line for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out old-fashioned or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy in most cases .
