Outdated home security system in Omaha

Can I Buy an Omaha Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your house has an existing security system and you want to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you want to upgrade to an integrated security system? You might even currently own a system with a different company, but are unhappy with their service.

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

You Moved Into A Home With Built-in Security Equipment Already Wired In

When you walked through your new home, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re the owner, it's time to activate it. Unless your hardware is significantly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still visit your home to check that the equipment is still in good repair and update your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may qualify for a reduced monthly plan.

Yet don't worry that you're boxed into your former security system. A lot of new devices can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to purchase devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also replace your hardware for a more modern experience.

You’d Like To Add A Complete Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Item

At one time, you might have purchased an indoor camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you want to upgrade to a full Omaha security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that older piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?

Often yes -- but not always. Devices such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a simple set up to link the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that bargain-basement or older security equipment may not integrate with new systems and will need to be switched out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can help you know which DIY devices can pair to the mobile app and control panel.

You Want To Keep Your Current Alarm Components But Change Monitoring Services

If the security company you use now isn't what you wanted, you might consider changing companies without replacing hardware. First, you’ll need to find out if your current service utilizes exclusive hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your components. That can feel like a pain, but when it’s done you'll have the most up-to-date technology that may have more features and be easier to manage.

If you can get a new provider, then the change may be more straightforward. Just verify that you don't have a current contract before you make the switch. You may be responsible for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out old-fashioned or broken devices, but the monitoring switch should be smooth in most cases .
