Can I use my own cameras with ADT?
Similarly, you may ask, can I add cameras to my ADT system?
If you already have ADT Pulse with Video, you can do it. If you don't have ADT Pulse with Video abilities, you'll need to upgrade your system first. It's very easy to add, and most people should be able to follow these instructions in order to add it. But keep in mind that you can only add one camera at a time.

In respect to this, can I use ADT camera without service?
If you have the ADT cloud based Pulse cameras (usable with the ADT Pulse app), then no, you will not be able to use the cameras to record video, or anything else for that matter. You also lose any service agreement you have, so if you have any problems with the cameras or DVR/NVR, ADT will not service them for you.
ADT-Owned Equipment Most likely, you will find a company that can use your existing ADT equipment and wiring and monitor your alarms. Most security companies can reprogram your control panel to work with their own monitoring center, even if ADT has locked you out from using it.
