Can I Buy a Beaumont Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

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

Fortunately, you may be able to order a Beaumont security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.

You Moved Into A House With Existing Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you toured your new house, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is significantly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. An installer will still visit your home to ensure everything is still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And without needing new equipment, you may qualify for a reduced monthly plan.

However, don't worry that you're boxed into your old security system. Most new accessories can work with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to add on devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also switch out components for a more modern experience.

You Want To Build An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Item

In the past, you might have bought an indoor camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want to upgrade to a full Beaumont security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that older component, can you sync it with the new security system?

Often yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Devices such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Then, it's a simple set up to link the item to your ADT control panel. Understand that bargain-basement or older security equipment may not cooperate and will need to be switched out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which DIY equipment can be used with the mobile app and control panel.

You’re Looking To Retain Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Companies

If the security service you have now isn't what you expected, you might think about changing companies without changing your equipment. The first step is to see if your current provider utilizes exclusive hardware. If they do, then changing security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your equipment. That can seem like a hassle, but at least you'll get the latest and greatest technology that may be more sensitive and user friendly.

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