Can I use my existing alarm system with AAA Alarms?

Yes,   AAA can activate alarm systems from almost any company out there.  If you have an alarm system from another company they can send out a technician who can reprogram your panel so that AAA monitors your system.  Not all companies will provide this service.   There is a fee associated with this,  but this will be less than your new package costs.
