Outdated home security system in Springfield

Can I Get a Springfield Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your house has an existing security system and you’d like to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has a wired security system. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now want to use a full security suite? You may even currently use a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their service.

Fortunately, you might be able to have a Springfield security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

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

When you purchased your new home, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your hardware is significantly outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. A technician will still go to your home to ensure the equipment is still functioning and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be able to get a discounted monthly contract.

However, don't feel like you're limited to your former system. Many new devices can work with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to add on devices, such as smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.

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

At one time, you might have purchased an exterior camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you're ready for a complete Springfield security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that older piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?

Often yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Products such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a quick process to sync the item to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security devices may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which older components can be used with the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Keep Using Your Current Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Companies

If the security service you currently have isn't what you expected, you might think about switching companies without replacing equipment. The first step is to find out if your current service has proprietary equipment. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your components. That might seem like a hassle, but when it’s done you'll have the best, newest equipment that may have more features and be easier to manage.

If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be more straightforward. Just check that you don't have a previous contract before you make the change. You may find yourself paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace old-fashioned or worn devices, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for most customers .
