So your home has an existing security system and you’d like to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your custom home already has security equipment. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you’re looking to get a full security package? You might even currently use a system with a different company, but aren’t happy with their current service.
Fortunately, you may be able to have a Eau Claire security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Moved Into A House With Built-in Security Equipment Already Wired In
When you walked through your new home, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your hardware is significantly outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. An installer will still go to your house to ensure everything is still functioning and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be able to get a reduced monthly bill.
However, don't worry that you're limited to your outdated security system. Many new components can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, go ahead and purchase devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also switch out equipment for a better experience.
You Want To Add A Full Security System Around Your DIY Item
In the past, you might have purchased an indoor camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you're ready for a comprehensive Eau Claire security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you integrate it into the new security system?
A lot of the times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Components like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Then, it's a simple process to link the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that bargain-basement or very outdated security components may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Go ahead and give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can figure out which prior components can connect to the mobile app and control panel.
You Want To Keep Your Current Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Companies
If the security company you use now isn't meeting your needs, you might consider changing companies without changing your system. The first thing to do is see if your current service uses proprietary components. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That may seem like an inconvenience, 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 get a new provider, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just check that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the switch. You may find yourself paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace old-fashioned or broken devices, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for you .
