Outdated home security system in Allentown

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

So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has a wired security system. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’re looking to get an integrated security suite? You may even currently use a system with a different provider, but don’t like their service.

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

You Moved Into A Home With Existing Security Equipment Already Wired In

When you walked through your new house, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, it's time to activate it. Unless your components are vastly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still come to your house to ensure everything is still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly bill.

Yet don't worry that you're limited to your former security system. Most new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and get devices, such as smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also switch out components for a better experience.

You Want To Build A Full Security System Around Your DIY Component

In the past, you may have installed an exterior camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a complete Allentown security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off component, can you integrate it into the new security system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Components such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a simple process to pair the item to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security components may not work will new systems and will need replacement. Just contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can help you know which prior equipment can connect to the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Retain Your Existing Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Services

If the security company you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might want to switch companies without upgrading your equipment. First, you’ll need to learn if your current company has exclusive equipment. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That can seem like a hassle, but when it’s done you'll get the best, newest equipment that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may be paying for two security contracts! You'll need to switch out outdated or worn components, but the monitoring change should be smooth for you .
