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

So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has security equipment. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now want to use a full security system? You may even currently have a system with another provider, but aren’t happy with their current service.

Fortunately, you may be able to order a Chandler security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

You Bought A Home With Existing Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you purchased your new home, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re the owner, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still come to your house to verify that everything is still functioning and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the equipment, you may be eligible for a reduced monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're limited to your old system. A lot of new components can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to add on devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace your hardware for a better experience.

You Want To Build An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

In the past, you may have bought a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want the benefit of a complete Chandler security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY device, can you sync it with the new system?

Often yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Products like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. After that, it's a quick set up to pair the item to your ADT control panel. Understand that cheap or very outdated security components may not work will new systems and will have to be replaced. Just contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which DIY equipment can connect to the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Services

If the monitoring service you currently have isn't what you wanted, you might think about changing providers without upgrading your system. The first thing to do is find out if your current service utilizes proprietary components. If they do, then changing security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your equipment. That can seem like a pain, but in the end you'll get the latest and greatest products that may have more features and be easier to control.

If you can get a new provider, then the transition may be fairly simple. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may find yourself on the line for two security contracts! You'll need to replace outdated or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy in most cases .
