Can I Get a Corpus Christi Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you want to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has a security system wired up. Or did you purchase a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to get a whole security system? You may even already own a system with another provider, but don’t like their service.

Luckily, you may be able to order a Corpus Christi security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Moved Into A House With Security Hardware Already Installed

When you bought your new home, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your hardware is vastly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still go to your home to make sure the components are still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new hardware, you may be eligible for a discounted monthly plan.

Yet don't assume that you're boxed into your old system. Most new components can work with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, go ahead and purchase devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also upgrade equipment for a more up-to-date experience.

You’d Like To Build A Complete Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item

In the past, you might have bought a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a complete Corpus Christi security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you add it to the new security system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Components like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a quick process to sync the item to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or very outdated security components may not integrate with new systems and will have to be swapped out. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can help you know which DIY components can connect to the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Keep Your Existing Alarm System But Change Monitoring Services

If the security company you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about switching companies without replacing equipment. The first step is to find out if your current company has exclusive hardware. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your devices. That might seem like a pain, but when it’s done you'll get the best, newest products that may include more features and be easier to control.

If you can switch, then the transition may be fairly simple. Just verify that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the switch. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to replace outdated or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy in most cases .
