Outdated home security system in Indianapolis

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

So your home has an existing security system and you’d like to add the security of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has security equipment. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now want to use an integrated security system? You might even currently have a system with another company, but are unhappy with their current service.

Luckily, you may be able to order a Indianapolis security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.

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

When you purchased your new home, you discovered it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A technician will still visit your home to make sure the components are still working and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the equipment, you may be eligible for a lower-cost monthly plan.

However, don't worry that you're boxed into your old security system. A lot of new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to get devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace components for a more modern experience.

You Want To Add A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Item

At one time, you may have set up an exterior camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a comprehensive Indianapolis security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that older device, can you sync it with the new security system?

Often yes -- but not always. Devices such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that have Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Following that, it's a quick set up to connect the item to your ADT control panel. Be aware that bargain-basement or very outdated security equipment may not cooperate and will need to be switched out. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which DIY devices can be used with the mobile app and control panel.

You’re Looking To Keep Your Current Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Companies

If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you expected, you might consider changing providers without changing your system. The first thing to do is see if your current provider utilizes exclusive equipment. If they do, then changing security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That may feel like a pain, but at least you'll have the latest and greatest products that may be more sophisticated and easier to use.

If you can switch, then the change may be more straightforward. Just verify that you don't have a previous contract before you make the change. You may be responsible for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or worn equipment, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly for you .
