Outdated home security system in Boston

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

So your home has an existing security system and you’d like to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has security equipment. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to get a complete security package? You may even currently own a system with a different provider, but aren’t happy with their current service.

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

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

When you toured your new house, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your equipment is very outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still visit your house to make sure the components are still in good repair and maybe even swap out your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new equipment, you may qualify for a discounted monthly plan.

Yet don't feel like you're stuck with your previous security system. Most new devices can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and get devices, like smart locks or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also upgrade components for a more up-to-date experience.

You’d Like To Build A Full Security System Around Your DIY Item

A while ago, you might have ordered an indoor camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want to upgrade to a comprehensive Boston security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?

Many times yes -- but no promises. Components like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Then, it's an easy process to pair the device to your ADT control panel. However, low-priced or older security devices may not integrate with new systems and will have to be replaced. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which prior equipment can be used with the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Companies

If the security service you use now isn't what you expected, you might consider changing companies without changing your system. The first thing to do is learn if your current company uses proprietary hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your components. That may seem like a pain, but when it’s done you'll get the most up-to-date equipment that may be more sensitive and user friendly.

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