So you have an existing security system and you want to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe your new home already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to get an integrated security package? You might even already own a system with another company, but don’t like their current service.
Luckily, you may be able to have a Baton Rouge security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.
You Moved Into A House With Built-in Security Hardware Already Installed
When you walked through your new home, you learned it had a security system wired in. Now that you moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your components are very outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. An installer will still visit your house to verify that everything is still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And without needing new equipment, you may be eligible for a reduced monthly plan.
Yet don't worry that you're limited to your old system. A lot of new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to add devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also switch out your hardware for a better experience.
You’d Like To Add A Full Security System Around Your DIY Item
At one time, you may have bought an exterior camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Baton Rouge security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?
Many times yes -- but not always. Devices like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that employ Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's a simple set up to sync the component to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security devices may not work will new systems and will need to be switched out. Just give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which older equipment can be used with the control panel and mobile app.
You’re Looking To Keep Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Providers
If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you expected, you might think about switching providers without switching system. First, you’ll need to find out if your current service uses exclusive hardware. If they do, then changing security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That might be a pain, but in the end you'll have the most up-to-date 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’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may find yourself paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or broken devices, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy in most cases .
