Outdated home security system in Peoria

Can I Use a Peoria Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has a wired security system. Or did you purchase a DIY doorbell camera and now you’re looking to upgrade to a whole security suite? You might even already own a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their service.

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

You Bought A House With Existing Security Components Already Installed

When you bought your new home, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your components are vastly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still go to your house to ensure the equipment is still functioning and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the equipment, you may be able to get a discounted monthly bill.

Yet don't feel like you're stuck with your old system. Most new devices can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to purchase devices, like security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also upgrade components for a better experience.

You Want To Build An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Device

At one time, you may have ordered an indoor camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want to upgrade to a comprehensive Peoria security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY piece of equipment, can you add it to the new system?

Many times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Devices like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's an easy process to pair the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or very outdated security equipment may not work will new systems and will need to be switched out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which prior devices can connect to the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Keep Your Current Alarm System But Change Monitoring Services

If the monitoring service you use now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing companies without switching equipment. The first thing to do is find out if your current company has exclusive hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That may feel like a hassle, but in the end you'll own the best, newest products that may include more features and be easier to manage.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be more straightforward. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out outdated or worn equipment, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy for you .
