Outdated home security system in Harrisburg

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

So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now want to upgrade to a full security package? You might even already use a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their service.

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

You Bought A Home With Existing Security Components Already Installed

When you toured your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your hardware is vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem.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 functioning and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new hardware, you may be eligible for a reduced monthly bill.

However, don't worry that you're stuck with your outdated system. A lot of new devices can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to add on devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also switch out equipment for a more modern experience.

You Want To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Item

A while ago, you may have purchased a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you're ready for a full Harrisburg security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you integrate it into the new system?

Often yes -- but no promises. Components like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's a simple set up to sync the item to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or older security devices may not integrate with new systems and will need to be switched out. Just contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can show you which prior equipment can pair to the mobile app and control panel.

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 want to switch companies without replacing system. The first step is to learn if your current service utilizes exclusive components. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your components. That may be a hassle, but when it’s done you'll own the best, newest equipment that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.

If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be fairly simple. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may find yourself on the line for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or worn components, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for most customers .
