Can I Order a Las Vegas Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you want to add the reliability of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has a security system wired up. Or did you get a boxed doorbell camera and now you want to get a whole security package? You may even currently use a system with a different company, but don’t like their offerings.

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

You Bought A House With Existing Security Components Already Installed

When you bought your new house, 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 hardware is vastly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. An installer will still visit your home to check that the equipment is still functioning and update your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new hardware, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly plan.

Yet don't worry that you're limited to your previous security system. Most new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored security system. So, don’t hesitate to add on devices, such as smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more complete security system. Your installer can also switch out equipment for a better experience.

You Want To Incorporate An Integrated Security System Around Your DIY Device

At one time, you may have installed an exterior camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you’d like a complete Las Vegas security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you add it to the new system?

A lot of the times yes -- but not always. Devices like smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that employ Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Following that, it's an easy set up to sync the component to your ADT control panel. However, low-priced or older security devices may not work will new systems and will need replacement. Just call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can figure out which DIY devices can work with the control panel and mobile app.

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

If the security company you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might consider changing providers without upgrading your hardware. The first thing to do is see if your current provider uses proprietary components. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your devices. That may be a hassle, but when it’s done you'll have the most up-to-date technology that may be more sensitive and easier to use.

If you can switch, then the change over may be fairly simple. Just check that you don't have outstanding contracts before you make the change. You may be on the line for two security system contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or broken devices, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy in most cases .
