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

So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your new home already has security equipment. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to use an integrated security suite? You might even currently use a system with another provider, but aren’t happy with their service.

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

You Moved Into A House With Security Hardware Already Installed

When you toured your new home, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your components are very dated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still come to your house to make sure everything is still functioning and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be able to get a reduced monthly bill.

Yet don't feel like you're limited to your outdated security system. Many new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to get devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also replace equipment for a more modern experience.

You’d Like To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device

A while ago, you might have installed an exterior camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you’d like a complete Tulsa security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that older piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?

Many times yes -- but not always. Products like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Following that, it's a simple process to sync the component to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security components may not cooperate and will have to be swapped out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which DIY devices will work with the control panel and mobile app.

You Want To Retain Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Services

If the monitoring company you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing providers without upgrading your system. First, you’ll need to see if your current company utilizes exclusive hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That may be a hassle, but at least you'll own the best, newest technology that may have more features and be easier to use.

If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be fairly simple. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may find yourself responsible for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out outdated or worn components, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy for you .
