Outdated home security system in Toledo
September 15, 2020

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

So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has a wired security system. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you want to get a whole security system? You might even already use a system with another company, but are unhappy with their offerings.

Fortunately, you might be able to have a Toledo security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Bought A House With Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you purchased your new house, you found out it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your components are vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A technician will still visit your home to check that the equipment is still working and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly bill.

Yet don't assume that you're boxed into your old security system. A lot of 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 comprehensive security system. Your technician can also switch out your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.

You Want To Add A Complete Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item

In the past, you may have ordered an exterior camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a complete Toledo security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But instead of replacing that older piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?

Often yes -- but not always. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Following that, it's an easy set up to link the component to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security devices may not cooperate and will have to be replaced. Go ahead and give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can figure out which older components can pair to the control panel and mobile app.

You’d Like To Keep Your Existing Alarm System But Change Monitoring Companies

If the monitoring service you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing providers without changing your equipment. The first step is to find out if your current provider utilizes exclusive components. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your equipment. That might feel like a pain, but when it’s done you'll have the most up-to-date products that may include more features and be easier to control.

If you can switch, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just make sure that you don't have a previous contract before you make the switch. You may find yourself on the line for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out old-fashioned or worn components, but the monitoring switch should be smooth for most customers .
