Outdated home security system in Lincoln

Can I Get a Lincoln Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So your home has an existing security system and you’re looking to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has a wired security system. Or did you buy a DIY doorbell camera and now you want to get an integrated security suite? You might even already have a system with a different provider, but aren’t happy with their service.

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

You Bought A Home With Existing Security Hardware Already Installed

When you walked through your new house, you found out it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you’re moved in, remember to activate it. Unless your equipment is vastly outdated, reactivating it shouldn't be a problem. A technician will still come to your house to make sure the components are still functioning and maybe even replace your touchscreen control center. And without needing new hardware, you may be able to get a discounted monthly plan.

However, don't feel like you're limited to your outdated system. Many new accessories can integrate with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, don’t hesitate to purchase devices, such as smart locks or security cameras, for a more complete security system. Your technician can also replace equipment for a better experience.

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

In the past, you might have installed an exterior camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want the benefit of a full Lincoln security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that one-off piece of equipment, can you sync it with the new security system?

Many times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Products such as doorbell cameras, glass break sensors, and smart locks that rely on Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Following that, it's a simple process to pair the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that cheap or older security equipment may not integrate with new systems and will need to be switched out. Go ahead and call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can show you which DIY components can be used with the mobile app and control panel.

You’d Like To Keep Using Your Current Alarm System But Change Monitoring Services

If the monitoring company you have now isn't meeting your needs, you might think about changing providers without upgrading your hardware. First, you’ll need to learn if your current company utilizes proprietary hardware. If they do, then a change in security monitoring will take a re-installation of all your components. That might be an inconvenience, but in the end you'll own the best, newest technology that may include more features and be easier to control.

If you can get a new provider, then the change over may be more straightforward. Just verify that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you make the switch. You may be paying for two security system contracts! You'll need to switch out outdated or worn equipment, but the monitoring switch should be smooth in most cases .
