So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe new build already has security equipment. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now want to use a whole security package? You might even currently have a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their current service.
Luckily, you may be able to order a Kansas City security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.
You Moved Into A House With Security Hardware Already Installed
When you bought 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 hardware is very dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A specialist will still visit your house to verify that the equipment is still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new equipment, you may be eligible for a lower-cost monthly bill.
Yet don't feel like you're boxed into your former system. A lot of new components can work with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to add on devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also replace components for a more up-to-date experience.
You Want To Build A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item
At one time, you might have purchased an indoor camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you're ready for a complete Kansas City security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you sync it with the new system?
Often yes -- but no promises. Components like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a quick set up to pair the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that low-priced or very outdated security equipment may not integrate with new systems and will need replacement. Go ahead and give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which prior components can pair to the mobile app and control panel.
You’re Looking To Keep Your Existing Alarm Components But Change Monitoring Services
If the security company you have now isn't what you wanted, you might want to switch providers without changing your equipment. The first thing to do is find out if your current service uses exclusive equipment. If they do, then changing security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your equipment. That might feel like an inconvenience, but in the end you'll own the latest and greatest technology that may include more features and be easier to use.
If you can switch, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll have to replace outdated or broken components, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy for you .
