Outdated home security system in Binghamton

Can I Order a Binghamton Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your house has an existing security system and you want to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has a wired security system. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you’d like to use a full security package? You may even currently own a system with a different company, but aren’t happy with their service.

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

You Bought A House With Built-in Security Hardware Already Installed

When you bought your new house, you learned it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is significantly outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. A specialist will still visit your house to make sure the components are still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control hub. And because you currently own the equipment, you may qualify for a reduced monthly contract.

Yet don't worry that you're boxed into your former system. A lot of new components can work with your existing ADT-monitored security system. So, feel free to add devices, such as smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also replace components for a more up-to-date experience.

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

At one time, you might have installed a doorbell camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a complete Binghamton security system with 24/7 monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY device, can you add it to the new security system?

Often yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Devices like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that employ Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Then, it's an easy set up to connect the item to your ADT control panel. However, bargain-basement or older security equipment may not integrate with new systems and will need replacement. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can let you know which DIY components can pair to the mobile app and control panel.

You’re Looking To Retain Your Current Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Services

If the monitoring service you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing companies without switching equipment. The first step is to find out if your current provider utilizes exclusive equipment. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your equipment. That can feel like a pain, but when it’s done you'll own the best, newest technology that may have more features and be easier to control.

If you can switch, then the transition may be more straightforward. Just check that you don't have a previous contract before you make the change. You may find yourself paying for two security contracts! You'll have to change out outdated or unusable components, but the monitoring switch should be fairly easy for most customers .
