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

So you have an existing security system and you want to add the security of ADT monitoring. Maybe new build already has a security system wired up. Or did you get an out-of-the-box doorbell camera and now you’d like to get a complete security system? You might even already own a system with a different company, but don’t like their current service.

Luckily, you may be able to get a Tyler security system installation with existing hardware -- depending on the situation.

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

When you toured your new house, you learned it had a security system that was already wired in. Now that you moved in, don’t wait to activate it. Unless your components are significantly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. A technician will still go to your house to ensure the equipment is still in good repair and update your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the equipment, you may qualify for a lower-cost monthly contract.

Yet don't feel like you're limited to your outdated system. A lot of new accessories can work with your existing ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to upgrade to new devices, like monitored smoke detectors or security cameras, for a more comprehensive security system. Your installer can also switch out equipment for a more modern experience.

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

A while ago, you might have bought an indoor camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want to upgrade to a full Tyler security system with continuous monitoring. But rather than replacing that DIY device, can you sync it with the new security system?

Many times yes -- but it’s not a guarantee. Devices like glass break sensors, doorbell cameras, and smart locks that use Z-Wave technology have a better integration chance. Then, it's an easy process to pair the component to your ADT control panel. Understand that low-priced or very outdated security devices may not integrate with new systems and will have to be swapped out. Simply call Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can help you know which DIY devices can pair to the control panel and mobile app.

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

If the security company you have now isn't what you wanted, you might think about switching companies without upgrading your system. First, you’ll need to learn if your current provider has proprietary equipment. If they do, then changing security monitoring will mean a re-installation of all your devices. That may seem like a hassle, but when it’s done you'll have the best, newest equipment that may be more sensitive and user friendly.

If you can switch, then the change may be somewhat easy. Just check that you’re not in the middle of a contract before you switch over. You may be responsible for two security system contracts! You'll need to switch out outdated or broken equipment, but the monitoring change should be fairly easy in most cases .
