Outdated home security system in Ogden

Can I Use an Ogden Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you’d like to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps your new home already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now you’d like to use an integrated security suite? You might even currently own a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their current service.

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

You Moved Into A House With Security Components Already Installed

When you walked through your new home, you learned it had a security system wired in. Now that you moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly dated, you can most likely reactivate it. A specialist will still come to your home to check that the components are still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be able to get a discounted monthly bill.

However, don't worry that you're stuck with your outdated system. A lot of new components can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to add on devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also upgrade components for a better experience.

You’d Like To Incorporate A Full Security System Around Your DIY Component

A while ago, you may have ordered a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a comprehensive Ogden security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY device, can you integrate it into the new security system?

Often yes -- but no promises. Components like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Then, it's an easy process to link the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that bargain-basement or older security components may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can help you know which prior devices can work with the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Keep Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Services

If the security company you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing providers without upgrading your hardware. The first thing to do is learn if your current service utilizes exclusive equipment. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That can feel like a pain, but at least you'll get the best, newest technology that may include more features and be easier to control.

If you can switch, then the transition may be somewhat easy. Just make sure that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may find yourself on the line for two security system contracts! You'll have to replace outdated or unusable devices, but the monitoring switch should be smooth for you .
