Can I Use a Jamestown Security System Installation With Existing Hardware?

So you have an existing security system and you’d like to add the reassurance of ADT monitoring. Maybe you moved into a home that already has security equipment. Or did you purchase a boxed doorbell camera and now you’re looking to use a full security package? You might even already use a system with another company, but aren’t happy with their offerings.

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

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

When you bought your new home, you found out it had a security system that was previously installed. Now that you’re the owner, remember to activate it. Unless your hardware is significantly outdated, you should be able to reactivate it. An installer will still go to your home to check that the components are still functioning and update your touchscreen control center. And since you already own the hardware, you may qualify for a lower-cost monthly bill.

However, don't feel like you're stuck with your outdated system. A lot of new devices can work with your current ADT-monitored home security system. So, feel free to add on devices, such as security cameras or monitored smoke detectors, for a more comprehensive security system. Your technician can also replace your hardware for a more modern experience.

You’d Like To Add An Integrated Security System Around Your Off-the-Shelf Component

A while ago, you might have purchased an indoor camera or a water sensor as a standalone occurrence. Now, you want to upgrade to a complete Jamestown security system with 24/7 monitoring. But instead of replacing that older component, can you add it to the new system?

Then, it's a quick process to connect the device to your ADT control panel. However, cheap or very outdated security equipment may not work will new systems and will have to be swapped out. Simply give a quick call to Secure24 Alarm Systems, and we can help you know which DIY components can be used with the control panel and mobile app.

You’d Like To Keep Your Current Alarm Components But Switch Monitoring Providers

If the monitoring service you have now isn't what you expected, you might want to switch providers without changing your equipment. The first thing to do is find out if your current provider utilizes exclusive hardware. If they do, then switching your security monitoring will require a re-installation of all your components. That might be a pain, but when it’s done you'll own the most up-to-date products that may have 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 don't have outstanding contracts before you switch over. You may be responsible for two security contracts! You'll have to switch out old-fashioned or worn devices, but the monitoring change should go smoothly for most customers .
