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

So you have an existing security system and you want to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Perhaps you moved into a home that already has a security system wired up. Or did you buy a boxed doorbell camera and now want to get a complete security system? You might even currently use a system with another provider, but are unhappy with their service.

Luckily, you might be able to get a Gulfport security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on a few things.

You Moved Into A Home With Existing Security Components Already Wired In

When you bought your new home, you learned it had a security system wired in. Now that you’re the owner, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, you can most likely reactivate it. An installer will still visit your house to make sure the components are still working and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And because you currently own the equipment, you may be eligible for a discounted monthly contract.

However, don't assume that you're stuck with your old system. Many new accessories can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add on devices, such as monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also upgrade equipment for a more modern experience.

You’d Like To Add A Complete Security System Around Your DIY Item

In the past, you may have bought a doorbell camera or a smart lock as a Do-It-Yourself experiment. Now, you're ready for a complete Gulfport security system with continuous monitoring. But instead of replacing that DIY component, can you sync it with the new system?

Many times yes -- but no promises. Devices such as smart locks, doorbell cameras, and glass break sensors that have Z-Wave technology have a better ability to integrate. After that, it's a simple set up to sync the device to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or very outdated security equipment may not cooperate and will have to be swapped out. Simply contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can show you which prior components will work with the mobile app and control panel.

You Want To Keep Your Existing Alarm Equipment But Switch Monitoring Services

If the monitoring service you have now isn't what you expected, you might want to switch companies without replacing equipment. First, you’ll need to learn if your current service utilizes proprietary components. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That might seem like a hassle, but at least you'll get the latest and greatest technology that may include more features and be easier to manage.

If you can switch, then the transition may be somewhat easy. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may find yourself responsible for two security contracts! You'll need to change out outdated or broken components, but the monitoring switch should be smooth for you .
