Can I Buy a Fort Worth 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 new build already has a wired security system. Or did you purchase an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’re looking to upgrade to a complete security system? You may even already use a system with a different company, but aren’t happy with their service.

Fortunately, you might be able to get a Fort Worth security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.

You Bought A Home With Existing Security Components Already Installed

When you toured your new home, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your components are significantly dated, you can most likely reactivate it. A specialist will still visit your house to verify that the equipment is still functioning and update your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the hardware, you may qualify for a reduced monthly bill.

However, don't worry that you're stuck with your previous security system. Most new devices can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and get devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also replace components for a better experience.

You’d Like To Build A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Component

In the past, you might have ordered an indoor camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a full Fort Worth security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that older component, can you sync it with the new system?

Often yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that have Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Following that, it's a quick set up to sync the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or older security devices may not work will new systems and will have to be replaced. Go ahead and contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which older devices can pair to the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the security company you use now isn't what you wanted, you might think about switching providers without replacing hardware. First, you’ll need to see if your current service has exclusive hardware. If they do, then changing security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That can seem like an inconvenience, but when it’s done you'll have the best, newest equipment that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may find yourself on the line for two security contracts! You'll have to replace old-fashioned or unusable components, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for most customers .
