Can I Order a The Woodlands Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you’d like to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to get an integrated security package? You may even already own a system with another company, but are unhappy with their current service.

Fortunately, you may be able to have a The Woodlands security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Moved Into A House With Security Equipment Already Installed

When you purchased your new home, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your components are significantly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still come to your house to verify that the components are still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the equipment, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly plan.

Yet don't feel like you're stuck with your outdated system. Many new components can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, go ahead and add on devices, such as smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also switch out equipment for a more up-to-date experience.

You’d Like To Incorporate An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item

A while ago, you may have set up an exterior camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want the benefit of a complete The Woodlands security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that one-off device, can you sync it with the new security system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Components like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a quick process to sync the item to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or older security devices may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can show you which older devices can be used with the mobile app and control panel.

You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Companies

If the monitoring company you use now isn't what you wanted, you might think about switching providers without replacing system. First, you’ll need to find out if your current company 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 when it’s done you'll have the most up-to-date equipment that may include more features and be easier to control.

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 change. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll have to change out old-fashioned or worn devices, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy for most customers .
