So your house has an existing security system and you’d like to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has a wired security system. Or did you purchase a DIY doorbell camera and now you’d like to upgrade to a full security system? You may even currently use a system with a different company, but aren’t happy with their current service.
Fortunately, you might be able to get a Salt Lake City security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.
You Moved Into A House With Existing Security Components Already Installed
When you purchased your new home, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your components are very outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A specialist will still come to your house to ensure everything is still working and update your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the hardware, you may qualify for a reduced monthly contract.
However, don't worry that you're limited to your former security system. Most new devices can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to purchase devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also switch out your hardware for a more modern experience.
You’d Like To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component
In the past, you might have installed an exterior camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Salt Lake City security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that older piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?
Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's an easy set up to link the item to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or older security components may not work will new systems and will need replacement. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which DIY devices can connect to the mobile app and control panel.
You Want To Retain Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Companies
If the security company you have now isn't what you expected, you might think about changing providers without upgrading your equipment. First, you’ll need to find out if your current provider has proprietary equipment. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your components. That may feel like an inconvenience, but when it’s done you'll own the best, newest products that may be more sophisticated and easier to use.
If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may be on the line for two security system contracts! You'll need to switch out old-fashioned or unusable devices, but the monitoring change should be smooth for you .
