Outdated home security system in Saginaw

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

So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has a wired security system. Or did you get a DIY doorbell camera and now you’re looking to upgrade to a full security package? You may even already have a system with a different company, but aren’t happy with their current service.

Fortunately, you might be able to order a Saginaw security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.

You Moved Into A House With Built-in Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you bought your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re the owner, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is significantly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still go to your home to ensure the components are still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the hardware, you may be able to get a reduced monthly plan.

However, don't worry that you're limited to your previous security system. A lot of new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to upgrade to new devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also switch out equipment for a more up-to-date experience.

You’d Like To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Component

A while ago, you may have set up an exterior camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want the benefit of a full Saginaw security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off device, can you sync it with the new system?

A lot of the times yes -- but no promises. Components like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's a quick process to sync the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or very outdated security devices may not work will new systems and will need replacement. Go ahead and contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can help you know which DIY equipment can be used with the mobile app and control panel.

You Want To Retain Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the security service you use now isn't what you expected, you might think about changing providers without upgrading your hardware. The first thing to do is see if your current provider has exclusive hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That may be 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 control.

If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you don't have a previous contract before you make the change. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll have to replace old-fashioned or worn equipment, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for most customers .
