Outdated home security system in New Haven
September 15, 2020

Can I Buy a New Haven 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 you moved into a home that already has a security system wired up. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you’d like to upgrade to a full security suite? You might even already own a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their service.

Fortunately, you may be able to get a New Haven security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.

You Moved Into A Home With Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you purchased your new home, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your hardware is vastly dated, you can most likely reactivate it. A specialist will still visit your home to make sure the components are still working and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the hardware, you may qualify for a discounted monthly bill.

However, don't feel like you're stuck with your outdated security system. Many new accessories can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to upgrade to new devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also switch out equipment for a more up-to-date experience.

You Want To Build A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Component

In the past, you might have installed an indoor camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a full New Haven security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that older piece of equipment, can you add it to the new system?

Often yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a quick set up to link the item to your ADT control panel. Be aware that low-priced or older security devices may not integrate with new systems and will have to be swapped out. Just contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which prior components can connect to the mobile app and control panel.

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

If the monitoring company you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might think about switching companies without replacing equipment. First, you’ll need to see if your current provider has exclusive components. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That can feel like a hassle, but when it’s done you'll get the most up-to-date technology that may be more sensitive and easier to use.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be more straightforward. Just verify that you don't have outstanding contracts before you switch over. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to switch out old-fashioned or worn components, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy in most cases .
