Hi, I’m new to the DIY alarm system and I’m wondering if a Surety rep could give me a list of things I need to buy to start fresh for my small business.
My restaurant has been with ADT Business for the last 7 years and I’ve been thinking about switching due to the unreliable system that didn’t trigger the alarm during break-ins and the fact that each sensor costs $99 plus a $99 installation fee. They also won’t let me buy it from a cheaper 3rd party to add it to my current system.
Please let me know which Surety panel I need to buy to get started. if you have any window shock sensor, door sensor, window sensor, or motion detector recommendations that would be great as well
I also want to know if the ADT equipment I own is compatible with any SURETY panels
I will attach photos of my current ADT panel and sensors. I don’t have the exact model numbers but I will also attach photos of what I think they are.
Currently, I have 1 ADT panel, 3 motion sensors, 2 door sensors (not pictured), 3 glass break detectors
Based on my photos, I think I have these below:
For the panel I have ADT Safewatch Pro 3000, I read online that there is a way to reset it to Honeywell VISTA 20P by replacing a chip. If I did succeed, can I use the Honeywell Vista 20P with Surety or do I need to buy a new panel from Surety Products regardless?
Thank you so much for answering all the questions I have. Truly appreciate it.
**In summary, I’d like to know **
1. If I can use the current ADT panel with Surety Alarm by replacing a part and resetting it as Honeywell Vista 20P
2. If not, which panel should I buy from Surety to get started; are there any Surety panels that are compatible with ADT (all Honeywell brand) sensors and glass break detectors I own
