Outdated home security system in Evansville

Can I Buy an Evansville Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has security equipment. Or did you purchase an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to use an integrated security suite? You might even already own a system with another company, but are unhappy with their current service.

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

You Bought A House With Built-in Security Components Already Wired In

When you toured your new house, you found out it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your hardware is very dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still visit your house to make sure everything is still functioning and update your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new hardware, you may qualify for a discounted monthly bill.

However, don't worry that you're stuck with your former security system. Many new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also upgrade components for a more modern experience.

You’d Like To Build A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Item

A while ago, you may have installed an indoor camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you want to upgrade to a full Evansville security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you integrate it into the new security system?

Many times yes -- but no promises. Components like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's an easy set up to pair the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or very outdated security components may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Go ahead and contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which DIY equipment will work with the control panel and mobile app.

You’d Like To Keep Your Existing Alarm System But Change Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring company you use now isn't what you expected, you might want to switch companies without upgrading your equipment. The first thing to do is find out if your current provider has proprietary hardware. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your equipment. That can seem like a pain, but when it’s done you'll get the most up-to-date equipment that may include more features and be easier to manage.

If you can switch, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may be paying for two security contracts! You'll have to switch out outdated or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for most customers .
