Can I Order an Amarillo Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has security equipment. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you want to use a complete security system? You might even already own a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their offerings.

Luckily, you might be able to get a Amarillo security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Bought A Home With Existing Security Hardware Already Installed

When you walked through your new home, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still come to your home to make sure everything is still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be eligible for a lower-cost monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're boxed into your outdated system. A lot of new devices can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add on devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also switch out components for a better experience.

You’d Like To Incorporate An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Component

In the past, you might have bought an indoor camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want to upgrade to a comprehensive Amarillo security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that older device, can you add it to the new system?

Often yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Then, it's a simple process to pair the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or older security components may not cooperate and will have to be swapped out. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which prior equipment can be used with the control panel and mobile app.

You Want To Keep Your Current Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring service you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might want to switch companies without replacing equipment. First, you’ll need to see if your current company uses proprietary hardware. If they do, then changing security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That may feel like a hassle, but at least you'll get the most up-to-date technology that may be more sensitive and user friendly.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be more straightforward. Just verify that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the switch. You may find yourself responsible for two security system contracts! You'll have to replace outdated or broken components, but the monitoring change should go smoothly in most cases .
