Outdated home security system in Newburgh

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

So your house has an existing security system and you want to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe your new home already has a wired security system. Or did you purchase an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now want to upgrade to a full security suite? You may even already have a system with a different company, but don’t like their service.

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

You Bought A Home With Existing Security Equipment Already Wired In

When you bought your new home, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your hardware is significantly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still go to your home to verify that everything is still functioning and update your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may qualify for a reduced monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're limited to your outdated security system. Most new components can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and upgrade to new devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also switch out equipment for a better experience.

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

In the past, you may have installed an indoor camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you want to upgrade to a comprehensive Newburgh security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that older component, can you sync it with the new system?

Many times yes -- but not always. Products such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that employ Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Following that, it's an easy set up to sync the item to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or older security devices may not integrate with new systems and will have to be replaced. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which older components can be used with the mobile app and control panel.

You Want To Retain Your Current Alarm Components But Change Monitoring Providers

If the security company you have now isn't what you expected, you might consider changing companies without changing your equipment. First, you’ll need to see if your current service utilizes exclusive equipment. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your equipment. That might be a pain, but in the end you'll have the best, newest equipment that may have more features and be easier to use.

If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be fairly simple. Just verify that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the change. You may find yourself responsible for two security system contracts! You'll have to replace old-fashioned or broken components, but the monitoring switch should be smooth for you .
