Outdated home security system in Camden

Can I Use a Camden Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now want to upgrade to a full security suite? You might even currently own a system with a different provider, but don’t like their offerings.

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

You Bought A Home With Security Components Already Installed

When you walked through your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your components are very dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still visit your home to ensure everything is still functioning and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be able to get a reduced monthly contract.

However, don't feel like you're stuck with your outdated system. A lot of new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to add devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace components for a more up-to-date experience.

You Want To Incorporate An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device

In the past, you might have bought an indoor camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you’d like a complete Camden security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you sync it with the new security system?

A lot of the times yes -- but not always. Products like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Following that, it's a simple set up to connect the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or older security devices may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which prior components can pair to the mobile app and control panel.

You Want To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Companies

If the monitoring company you have now isn't what you expected, you might want to switch companies without switching system. The first thing to do is learn if your current service utilizes exclusive equipment. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That may be a hassle, but at least you'll get the latest and greatest products that may be more sensitive and easier to use.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be fairly simple. Just make sure that you don't have a previous contract before you make the switch. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll have to switch out old-fashioned or unusable devices, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy in most cases .
