Outdated home security system in Yakima

Can I Buy a Yakima Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’re looking to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has security equipment. Or did you get a DIY doorbell camera and now you’d like to use a complete security suite? You might even already own a system with another company, but don’t like their current service.

Luckily, you may be able to order a Yakima security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.

You Moved Into A Home With Security Hardware Already Wired In

When you bought your new home, you discovered it had a security system wired in. Now that you moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still go to your house to verify that the equipment is still in good repair and update your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the equipment, you may qualify for a lower-cost monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're stuck with your outdated system. Many new components can integrate with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, feel free to add on devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also replace equipment for a better experience.

You’d Like To Add A Full Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

A while ago, you may have bought an indoor camera or a water sensor as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you're ready for a complete Yakima security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that older device, can you add it to the new system?

A lot of the times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Products 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 an easy process to pair the component to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security devices may not integrate with new systems and will need replacement. Go ahead and contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which DIY devices can connect to the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Retain Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Change Monitoring Companies

If the security service you use now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about switching providers without upgrading your hardware. The first thing to do is find out if your current company has proprietary equipment. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your equipment. That might feel like a pain, but at least you'll have the best, newest equipment that may have more features and be easier to control.

If you can switch, then the change over may be fairly simple. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the change. You may be on the line for two security contracts! You'll have to replace old-fashioned or worn devices, but the monitoring change should be smooth for you .
