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

So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has a wired security system. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’re looking to upgrade to an integrated security suite? You might even already own a system with another provider, but don’t like their offerings.

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

You Bought A House With Existing Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you walked through your new house, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. An installer will still visit your house to verify that the equipment is still in good repair and update your touchscreen control hub. And since you already own the equipment, you may be eligible for a lower-cost monthly contract.

Yet don't worry that you're boxed into your old system. Most new devices can work with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to purchase devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace components for a better experience.

You Want To Incorporate An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Device

A while ago, you might have installed a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you want to upgrade to a full Lafayette security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that older component, can you sync it with the new security system?

Many times yes -- but no promises. Components like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a quick set up to connect the item to your ADT control panel. However, low-priced or older security components may not integrate with new systems and will need replacement. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which DIY equipment can work with the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Retain Your Current Alarm System But Change Monitoring Providers

If the security service you use now isn't what you wanted, you might think about changing companies without switching system. The first thing to do is see if your current provider has exclusive equipment. If they do, then changing security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That can seem like a pain, but in the end you'll get the latest and greatest technology that may have more features and be easier to control.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be somewhat easy. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may be responsible for two security system contracts! You'll have to switch out outdated or broken devices, but the monitoring change should go smoothly in most cases .
