So you have an existing security system and you want to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to get an integrated security suite? You might even currently use a system with another company, but aren’t happy with their current service.
Fortunately, you may be able to get a Long Island security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.
You Moved Into A House With Built-in Security Equipment Already Wired In
When you walked through your new house, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is very dated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still visit your home to make sure the equipment is still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the equipment, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly bill.
Yet don't worry that you're boxed into your previous security system. A lot of new components can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, go ahead and get devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also replace equipment for a better experience.
You’d Like To Incorporate A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Item
At one time, you might have set up an exterior camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Long Island security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that one-off device, can you integrate it into the new system?
Many times yes -- but no promises. Products such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's an easy process to connect the item to your ADT control panel. Understand that bargain-basement or older security equipment may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which DIY devices can work with the control panel and mobile app.
You’re Looking To Retain Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Companies
If the monitoring company you have now isn't what you expected, you might think about switching providers without changing your hardware. First, you’ll need to find out if your current provider uses proprietary hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That may be a hassle, but at least you'll own the best, newest products that may be more sensitive and easier to use.
If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you don't have a previous contract before you make the switch. You may find yourself paying for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out old-fashioned or worn equipment, but the monitoring change should go smoothly in most cases .
