Outdated home security system in Wausau
September 15, 2020

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

So your house has an existing security system and you want to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe your custom home already has security equipment. Or did you purchase an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now want to upgrade to a complete security package? You might even already own a system with a different provider, but aren’t happy with their service.

Fortunately, you might be able to order a Wausau security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on some key factors.

You Bought A House With Security Components Already Installed

When you bought your new home, you discovered it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly dated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still come to your house to ensure the components are still functioning and update your touchscreen control hub. And without needing new equipment, you may qualify for a lower-cost monthly plan.

However, don't assume that you're boxed into your former system. Most new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to add devices, like smart locks or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your technician can also upgrade your hardware for a more up-to-date experience.

You Want To Add A Full Security System Around Your DIY Device

At one time, you might have installed a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a standalone occurrence. Now, you’d like a complete Wausau security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that one-off component, can you sync it with the new system?

A lot of the times yes -- but no promises. Components such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that use Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. Following that, it's a quick set up to link the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or older security components may not cooperate and will need to be switched out. Go ahead and give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which DIY equipment will work with the mobile app and control panel.

You’re Looking To Keep Using Your Current Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring company you currently have isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing providers without switching hardware. First, you’ll need to learn if your current provider uses exclusive components. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your devices. That can be an inconvenience, but when it’s done you'll get the most up-to-date products that may have more features and be easier to manage.

If you can switch, then the change may be somewhat easy. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may be responsible for two security contracts! You'll have to change out outdated or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for most customers .
