Can I Buy a Little Rock Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have 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 get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’re looking to use a whole security suite? You might even currently have a system with another provider, but don’t like their service.

Luckily, you might be able to get a Little Rock security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.

You Moved Into A Home With Built-in Security Equipment Already Wired In

When you purchased your new house, you discovered 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 Unless your components are vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still go to your home to check that everything is still functioning and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be eligible for a discounted monthly bill.

Yet don't worry that you're limited to your outdated system. Many new components can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and get devices, like security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also switch out equipment for a more up-to-date experience.

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

A while ago, you might have ordered a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you’d like a complete Little Rock security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that older component, can you add it to the new security system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Products such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Then, it's a quick process to connect the component to your ADT control panel. However, low-priced or very outdated security equipment may not integrate with new systems and will need to be switched out. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which DIY devices can be used with the control panel and mobile app.

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

If the monitoring service you have now isn't what you wanted, you might think about switching providers without upgrading your hardware. The first step is to learn if your current provider has proprietary hardware. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your devices. That may be an inconvenience, but when it’s done you'll get the latest and greatest technology that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the transition may be more straightforward. Just make sure that you don't have a current contract before you switch over. You may find yourself responsible for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out old-fashioned or broken devices, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for you .
