So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe new build already has a wired security system. Or did you get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now want to get an integrated security package? You may even currently use a system with a different provider, but aren’t happy with their current service.
Fortunately, you might be able to order a Dayton security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.
You Bought A Home With Existing Security Equipment Already Wired In
When you bought your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your hardware is vastly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still go to your house to make sure the equipment is still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the hardware, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly contract.
Yet don't assume that you're limited to your old system. Many new components can work with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and get devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also switch out equipment for a better experience.
You’d Like To Build A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item
A while ago, you might have bought a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a complete Dayton security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that older piece of equipment, can you integrate it into the new security system?
Often yes -- but no promises. Components such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that have Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. After that, it's a quick set up to link the device to your ADT control panel. However, low-priced or older security equipment may not cooperate and will need replacement. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which DIY equipment can pair to the mobile app and control panel.
You Want To Retain Your Existing Alarm System But Change Monitoring Providers
If the monitoring company you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about switching companies without upgrading your system. The first thing to do is find out if your current company utilizes proprietary components. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your equipment. That can seem like an inconvenience, but at least you'll have the latest and greatest technology that may include more features and be easier to use.
If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be fairly simple. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may be responsible for two security contracts! You'll have to change out outdated or worn components, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for most customers .
