Can I Buy a Sugarland Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has a wired security system. Or did you get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to upgrade to a full security package? You may even currently have a system with another company, but are unhappy with their current service.

Fortunately, you might be able to have a Sugarland security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.

You Moved Into A House With Existing Security Components Already Installed

When you purchased your new home, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your components are vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A technician will still come to your house to ensure the components are still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new equipment, you may be able to get a reduced monthly plan.

Yet don't assume that you're boxed into your previous security system. Many new devices can work with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, go ahead and get devices, such as smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also replace equipment for a better experience.

You’d Like To Add A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

A while ago, you might have bought an indoor camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a complete Sugarland security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But instead of replacing that older device, can you add it to the new system?

Often yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Products such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a simple set up to connect the item to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or older security equipment may not work will new systems and will need to be switched out. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which older devices will work with the mobile app and control panel.

You’re Looking To Keep Your Current Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you expected, you might want to switch providers without changing your hardware. First, you’ll need to see if your current service utilizes exclusive hardware. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That might feel like an inconvenience, but at least you'll own the best, newest equipment that may be more sophisticated and easier to use.

If you can switch, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just check that you don't have a current contract before you make the switch. You may be responsible for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace outdated or unusable equipment, but the monitoring change should be smooth for most customers .
