Can I Get a Provo 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 new build already has a wired security system. Or did you purchase a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to upgrade to an integrated security system? You might even currently use a system with another company, but don’t like their service.

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

You Moved Into A House With Security Components Already Wired In

When you toured your new house, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, it's time to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A specialist will still visit your house to ensure the components are still in good repair and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the equipment, you may be able to get a reduced monthly bill.

However, don't feel like you're boxed into your outdated system. Many new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, go ahead and get devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also switch out your hardware for a better experience.

You Want To Build A Full Security System Around Your DIY Component

In the past, you might have set up an exterior camera or a water sensor as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a complete Provo security system with round-the-clock monitoring. But instead of replacing that older device, can you integrate it into the new security system?

Often yes -- but no promises. Products such as glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's an easy set up to connect the component to your ADT control panel. Be aware that cheap or very outdated security devices may not work will new systems and will need replacement. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which DIY components can connect to the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Keep Using Your Current Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Services

If the monitoring company you have now isn't what you wanted, you might consider changing providers without changing your equipment. First, you’ll need to learn if your current provider has exclusive components. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your components. That may be a hassle, but when it’s done you'll have the best, newest equipment that may be more sensitive and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the change over may be fairly simple. Just check that you don't have a current contract before you make the switch. 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 go smoothly in most cases .
