Outdated home security system in Concord

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

So your house has an existing security system and you’d like to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has security equipment. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to get a whole security package? You might even currently have a system with a different provider, but are unhappy with their current service.

Fortunately, you might be able to have a Concord 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 house, you discovered it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re the owner, it's time to activate it. Unless your components are very outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. An installer will still go to your house to ensure everything is still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be able to get a reduced monthly bill.

Yet don't worry that you're boxed into your former security system. A lot of new devices can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to get devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also upgrade your hardware for a better experience.

You’d Like To Add A Full Security System Around Your DIY Item

At one time, you may have installed an indoor camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a full Concord security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that older device, can you sync it with the new security system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's an easy set up to sync the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that bargain-basement or older security components may not integrate with new systems and will need replacement. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which DIY components can pair to the control panel and mobile app.

You’d Like To Keep Your Current Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring service you use now isn't what you expected, you might want to switch companies without switching equipment. First, you’ll need to find out if your current provider utilizes proprietary hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your equipment. That might feel like an inconvenience, but at least you'll have the best, newest products that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the change may be more straightforward. Just verify that you don't have a previous contract before you make the switch. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll need to change out old-fashioned or unusable equipment, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy in most cases .
