Can I Get a Boise Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe new build already has security equipment. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now want to get a full security suite? You might even already have a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their service.

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

You Bought A House With Security Equipment Already Wired In

When you bought your new house, you found out it had a security system wired in. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your equipment is significantly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still come to your house to verify that the equipment is still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the hardware, you may qualify for a lower-cost monthly bill.

However, don't feel like you're boxed into your previous system. Most new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add on devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also upgrade your hardware for a better experience.

You’d Like To Build An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Device

A while ago, you might have set up an exterior camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you're ready for a full Boise security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But rather than replacing that older component, can you sync it with the new security system?

A lot of the times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices like doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's an easy set up to pair the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or very outdated security devices may not cooperate and will need to be switched out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which older equipment will work with the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Retain Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services

If the monitoring service you use now isn't what you expected, you might consider changing companies without upgrading your equipment. The first thing to do is learn if your current provider utilizes proprietary hardware. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your devices. That can be an inconvenience, but at least you'll get the best, newest products that may have more features and be easier to manage.

If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just verify that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the switch. You may find yourself paying for two security system contracts! You'll have to replace old-fashioned or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should be smooth for most customers .
