Can I Order a St. George Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your new home already has a wired security system. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now you’d like to get a full security package? You may even already use a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their current service.

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

You Bought A House With Existing Security Hardware Already Installed

When you toured your new home, 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 Unless your equipment is very outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. A technician will still go to your home to verify that the equipment is still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the hardware, you may qualify for a discounted monthly bill.

Yet don't assume that you're boxed into your previous system. Most new components can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, feel free to add on devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also switch out components for a more up-to-date experience.

You Want To Incorporate A Complete Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Device

A while ago, you may have purchased an indoor camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a full St. George security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that older piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new system?

Many times yes -- but there’s no guarantee. Products like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Then, it's a quick process to pair the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or older security components may not integrate with new systems and will need replacement. Just give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can help you know which prior components can pair to the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Keep Your Existing Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring service you use now isn't what you wanted, you might think about changing providers without switching system. First, you’ll need to see if your current company utilizes proprietary components. If they do, then changing security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your components. That can seem like a hassle, but in the end you'll get the best, newest equipment that may include more features and be easier to use.

If you can switch, then the change may be fairly simple. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or unusable components, but the monitoring change should go smoothly in most cases .
