Can I Get a montgomery Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your house has an existing security system and you’d like to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now want to upgrade to a whole security suite? You may even already have a system with a different company, but aren’t happy with their offerings.

Luckily, you might be able to have a Montgomery security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.

You Moved Into A Home With Built-in Security Components Already Installed

When you walked through your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your components are vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. An installer will still go to your home to ensure the components are still in good repair and update your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the equipment, you may be eligible for a lower-cost monthly plan.

However, don't assume that you're stuck with your old security system. Many new accessories can integrate with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to get devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also upgrade components for a better experience.

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

In the past, you might have purchased an indoor camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Montgomery security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY device, can you sync it with the new security system?

A lot of the times yes -- but not always. Products such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's a simple set up to sync the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that bargain-basement or older security devices may not integrate with new systems and will have to be swapped out. Just give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which DIY devices can connect to the control panel and mobile app.

You Want To Retain Your Current Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring service you use now isn't what you wanted, you might consider changing providers without changing your equipment. First, you’ll need to find out if your current company has exclusive components. If they do, then changing security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your components. That might seem like an inconvenience, but in the end you'll get the best, newest products that may include more features and be easier to manage.

If you can switch, then the transition may be fairly simple. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace outdated or unusable equipment, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for you .
