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

So your house has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the protection of ADT monitoring. Perhaps new build already has security equipment. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to get a complete security system? You might even currently use a system with a different provider, but aren’t happy with their current service.

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

You Bought A House With Built-in Security Components Already Wired In

When you purchased your new house, you discovered it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your hardware is significantly dated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A specialist will still come to your home to ensure everything is still working and update your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be able to get a lower-cost monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're boxed into your previous system. Most new components can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, go ahead and add on devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more well-rounded security system. Your installer can also replace your hardware for a better experience.

You Want To Incorporate An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

In the past, you may have purchased an exterior camera or a smart lock as a one-time thing. Now, you want the benefit of a full Flint security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off component, can you integrate it into the new system?

A lot of the times yes -- but no promises. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that have Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. After that, it's a quick process to pair the device to your ADT control panel. Be aware that bargain-basement or very outdated security devices may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Go ahead and contact Secure24 Alarm Systems, and they can let you know which DIY components can pair to the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Keep Using Your Current Alarm System But Switch Monitoring Companies

If the monitoring service you use now isn't what you wanted, you might think about switching providers without upgrading your system. The first step is to learn if your current company utilizes exclusive equipment. If they do, then a switch in security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your components. That can be an inconvenience, but at least you'll have the best, newest products that may include more features and be easier to use.

If you can switch, then the change may be somewhat easy. Just check that you don't have outstanding contracts before you switch over. You may find yourself paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to switch out old-fashioned or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy for most customers .
