Outdated home security system in Rochester

Can I Order a Rochester Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you want to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your custom home already has a wired security system. Or did you get a DIY doorbell camera and now want to get a full security suite? You might even already use a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their service.

Fortunately, you may be able to have a Rochester security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.

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

When you purchased your new house, you learned it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your components are very dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A specialist will still come to your home to make sure the equipment is still working and update your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new equipment, you may be able to get a discounted monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're stuck with your old security system. Many new devices can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to get devices, like security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.

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

A while ago, you might have ordered a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you’d like a full Rochester security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new security system?

A lot of the times yes -- but no promises. Devices like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that use Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a quick set up to pair the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that bargain-basement or very outdated security equipment may not integrate with new systems and will need to be switched out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can figure out which DIY devices can connect to the control panel and mobile app.

You’d Like To Retain Your Current Alarm System But Change Monitoring Companies

If the security company you have now isn't what you expected, you might want to switch providers without replacing equipment. The first step is to see if your current company utilizes exclusive hardware. If they do, then changing security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That might seem like a pain, but when it’s done you'll get the latest and greatest products that may be more sensitive and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the change may be fairly simple. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out outdated or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy for you .
