Can I Get a Palm Springs Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your custom home already has security equipment. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to use a complete security package? You might even currently own a system with another provider, but don’t like their current service.

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

You Moved Into A Home With Built-in Security Equipment Already Installed

When you bought your new house, you learned it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your equipment is significantly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A specialist will still go to your home to make sure the components are 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 plan.

Yet don't worry that you're stuck with your old system. Most new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, feel free to upgrade to new devices, such as smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace your hardware for a more modern experience.

You Want To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Component

At one time, you might have bought a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want to upgrade to a complete Palm Springs security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off device, can you add it to the new security system?

A lot of the times yes -- but no promises. Devices such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a simple process to pair the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or very outdated security devices may not cooperate and will need replacement. Just contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can help you know which older components can connect to the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Retain Your Existing Alarm System But Change Monitoring Companies

If the security service you currently have isn't what you expected, you might think about switching companies without upgrading your equipment. The first thing to do is see if your current service utilizes exclusive hardware. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That can seem like a pain, but when it’s done you'll own the best, newest equipment that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.

If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just check that you don't have a previous contract before you make the switch. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll have to replace outdated or broken devices, but the monitoring switch should be smooth in most cases .
