Can I Buy a Prescott Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to get a whole security suite? You may even already own a system with another provider, but aren’t happy with their offerings.

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

You Bought A House With Built-in Security Equipment Already Installed

When you purchased your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still come to your home to check that the equipment is still in good repair and update your touchscreen control center. And without needing new equipment, you may be able to get a discounted monthly bill.

However, don't feel like you're stuck with your old system. A lot of new devices can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, feel free to add devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also replace your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.

You Want To Add A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

A while ago, you might have installed an indoor camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a complete Prescott security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that one-off device, can you sync it with the new security system?

A lot of the times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's an easy set up to connect the item to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or very outdated security components may not integrate with new systems and will have to be replaced. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can figure out which prior components can work with the mobile app and control panel.

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

If the security service you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might want to switch providers without upgrading your system. The first thing to do is learn if your current company has proprietary components. 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 when it’s done you'll have the latest and greatest equipment that may have more features and be easier to use.

If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be fairly simple. Just make sure that you don't have a current contract before you switch over. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll need to replace outdated or worn devices, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy for most customers .
