So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has a wired security system. Or did you get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now want to use an integrated security suite? You might even currently have a system with another provider, but aren’t happy with their service.
Luckily, you may be able to get a Naperville security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.
You Bought A Home With Security Hardware Already Wired In
When you bought 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 Unless your components are vastly outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. An installer will still come to your home to verify that everything is still functioning and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the hardware, you may be eligible for a lower-cost monthly plan.
However, don't feel like you're boxed into your former system. Many new devices can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to add on devices, like security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also upgrade your hardware for a better experience.
You’d Like To Add A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device
A while ago, you may have bought a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a comprehensive Naperville security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off device, can you sync it with the new security system?
A lot of the times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Devices such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Then, it's a simple set up to sync the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or older security components may not work will new systems and will need to be switched out. Just give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which DIY components can be used with the mobile app and control panel.
You Want To Keep Your Current Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Providers
If the monitoring company you use now isn't what you expected, you might consider changing companies without replacing equipment. The first thing to do is find out if your current provider utilizes proprietary equipment. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That can be an inconvenience, but at least you'll have the latest and greatest products that may include more features and be easier to manage.
If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you don't have a previous contract before you switch over. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or unusable equipment, but the monitoring change should be smooth for you .
