Can I Order a Las Cruces Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you purchase an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now want to get a complete security package? You might even already have a system with another provider, but aren’t happy with their offerings.

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

You Moved Into A Home With Security Components Already Installed

When you bought your new house, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still visit your home to check that the components are still functioning and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the hardware, you may qualify for a discounted monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're stuck with your previous system. A lot of new accessories can integrate with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also replace equipment for a more modern experience.

You’d Like To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item

At one time, you may have purchased an exterior camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a complete Las Cruces security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that older device, can you sync it with the new security system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Components such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better chance at integrating. Then, it's a quick set up to connect the device to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or older security equipment may not cooperate and will need replacement. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can figure out which DIY equipment will work with the control panel and mobile app.

You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Current Alarm System But Change Monitoring Companies

If the monitoring company you use now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing companies without upgrading your hardware. First, you’ll need to see if your current provider has proprietary equipment. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your components. That can be an inconvenience, but when it’s done you'll own the most up-to-date products that may be more sophisticated and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the change over may be somewhat easy. Just verify that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the switch. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll need to switch out outdated or unusable components, but the monitoring switch should go smoothly in most cases .
