So your house has an existing security system and you’d like to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has security equipment. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you want to upgrade to an integrated security system? You might even already use a system with another provider, but don’t like their offerings.
Luckily, you might be able to order a New Brunswick security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.
You Moved Into A House With Existing Security Hardware Already Wired In
When you walked through your new house, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your components are vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. An installer will still come to your house to make sure the equipment is still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new equipment, you may qualify for a reduced monthly bill.
However, don't worry that you're boxed into your outdated system. Most new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add devices, like security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace components for a more up-to-date experience.
You’d Like To Build A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device
At one time, you may have bought an exterior camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you want to upgrade to a full New Brunswick security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that older piece of equipment, can you add it to the new system?
Many times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Devices such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Following that, it's an easy set up to pair the component to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or older security equipment may not cooperate and will need replacement. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can show you which DIY components can be used with the control panel and mobile app.
You’re Looking To Keep Your Existing Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Providers
If the monitoring service you use now isn't what you wanted, you might want to switch providers without switching system. The first step is to learn if your current service uses proprietary hardware. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That may feel like an inconvenience, but in the end you'll have the latest and greatest technology that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.
If you can switch, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may find yourself responsible for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace old-fashioned or broken components, but the monitoring change should be smooth in most cases .
