Can I Order a Fresno Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you want to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has security equipment. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now you want to use a full security suite? You might even already have a system with another company, but are unhappy with their service.

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

You Bought A House With Built-in Security Components Already Installed

When you purchased your new house, you learned it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is very dated, you can most likely reactivate it. A technician will still visit your house to make sure the equipment is still working and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control hub. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be able to get a discounted monthly plan.

Yet don't assume that you're stuck with your old security system. Most new components can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and upgrade to new devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also replace equipment for a better experience.

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

In the past, you may have ordered a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want the benefit of a full Fresno security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new security system?

A lot of the times yes -- but no promises. Products such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Then, it's a quick process to connect the item to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or older security components may not integrate with new systems and will need to be switched out. Just contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which prior components can pair to the control panel and mobile app.

You Want To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Services

If the monitoring company you have now isn't what you wanted, you might think about changing companies without changing your equipment. The first thing to do is learn if your current provider utilizes proprietary hardware. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That can be a hassle, but when it’s done 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’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may be responsible for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out old-fashioned or worn components, but the monitoring change should be smooth in most cases .
