Can I Buy an Orlando Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has security equipment. Or did you get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to get a full security system? You might even currently have a system with a different company, but aren’t happy with their current service.

Fortunately, you may be able to order a Orlando security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Moved Into A House With Built-in Security Components Already Wired In

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 Unless your components are significantly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A specialist will still visit your house to ensure everything is still functioning and update your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new hardware, you may qualify for a reduced monthly plan.

However, don't worry that you're boxed into your former security system. A lot of new components can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to add on devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also switch out your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.

You Want To Add A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

A while ago, you may have set up an exterior camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you’d like a comprehensive Orlando security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?

Often yes -- but no promises. Products like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. After that, it's a simple set up to connect the component to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security equipment may not cooperate and will have to be replaced. Go ahead and contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can show you which DIY components will work with the mobile app and control panel.

You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services

If the security service you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might consider changing companies without changing your hardware. First, you’ll need to learn if your current service utilizes exclusive components. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That may seem like a pain, but at least you'll get the best, newest equipment that may include more features and be easier to control.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be more straightforward. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or worn components, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy in most cases .
