Can I use previous system's WIRED door and window sensors with SimpliSafe?

I have a Brinks system with several WIRED zones for door and window sensors. Does SimpliSafe allow me to use these sensors? What about a WIRED smoke detector?

I want to keep the WIRED sensors as there have been several break-ins in the area by people using WiFi jammers to block WIRELESS sensors for security systems.

Hi @frank_tarz, 

SimpliSafe uses a system that isn't able to integrate devices from other companies. It's a closed system so we can ensure its quality and keep the system locked down and secure.

Jamming is a concern for all wireless security systems, and that's why SimpliSafe uses intelligent jam detection to immediately warn the user of a possible attack. We even have regular firmware updates to stay ahead of future threats like this. Check out this post on our blog for more info.
