Outdated home security system in Brooklyn

Can I Order a Brooklyn Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has a security system wired up. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you’d like to get a complete security system? You might even currently own a system with a different provider, but aren’t happy with their service.

Luckily, you may be able to order a Brooklyn security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.

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

When you bought your new home, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your hardware is vastly outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. An installer will still go to your home to check that the equipment is still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may qualify for a lower-cost monthly bill.

Yet don't worry that you're limited to your former system. Most new accessories can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and get devices, like security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also replace components for a more up-to-date experience.

You’d Like To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device

In the past, you may have set up an exterior camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you're ready for a comprehensive Brooklyn security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY component, can you sync it with the new security system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Products like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a simple set up to pair the component to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or very outdated security equipment may not integrate with new systems and will need to be switched out. Go ahead and give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which DIY equipment can connect to the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Retain Your Existing Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Companies

If the security service you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might want to switch companies without changing your hardware. The first step is to see if your current service uses exclusive equipment. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That might seem like a pain, but when it’s done you'll get the best, newest technology that may be more sophisticated and easier to use.

If you can switch, then the change may be more straightforward. Just check that you don't have a current contract before you make the change. You may find yourself on the line for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace outdated or unusable devices, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy for most customers .
