So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you want to get a whole security suite? You may even currently have a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their offerings.
Fortunately, you might be able to order a Jefferson City security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Bought A Home With Security Equipment Already Wired In
When you purchased your new home, 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 Unless your components are significantly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it.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 technician will still come to your home to make sure the components are still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly contract.
Yet don't feel like you're limited to your former security system. Many new components can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, feel free to get devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also switch out equipment for a better experience.
You Want To Build A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device
At one time, you may have bought an exterior camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Jefferson City security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY device, can you sync it with the new system?
Many times yes -- but not always. Products such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. After that, it's a simple process to pair the component to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or older security devices may not cooperate and will need to be switched out. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which prior devices can pair to the mobile app and control panel.
You Want To Retain Your Existing Alarm Components But Change Monitoring Companies
If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you wanted, you might want to switch providers without changing your hardware. The first thing to do is learn if your current service uses proprietary equipment. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That might seem like an inconvenience, but at least you'll own the best, newest technology that may be more sensitive and user friendly.
If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be more straightforward. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may be on the line for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or broken components, but the monitoring switch should be smooth for you .
