Can I Use a Fayetteville Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Maybe new build already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to use a full security system? You may even currently use a system with another company, but aren’t happy with their current service.

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

You Moved Into A House With Existing Security Components Already Installed

When you toured your new home, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your components are very dated, you can most likely reactivate it. A specialist will still come to your house to make sure the components are still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be eligible for a discounted monthly plan.

However, don't worry that you're stuck with your old system. Many new components can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to upgrade to new devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also replace components for a more modern experience.

You Want To Build A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

In the past, you may have ordered an indoor camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a complete Fayetteville 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 there’s no guarantee. Devices like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Following that, it's an easy set up to connect the item to your ADT control panel. Understand that cheap or older security devices may not work will new systems and will need to be switched out. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which older equipment will work with the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Keep Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services

If the security company you have now isn't what you expected, you might want to switch providers without replacing system. First, you’ll need to see if your current provider uses exclusive hardware. If they do, then changing security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That may feel like a hassle, but at least you'll get the best, newest products that may include more features and be easier to manage.

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