is it worth changing from ackerman security to comcast

I'm considering changing from Ackerman Security to Xfinity home security - but have window and door sensors already imbedded within the home along with motion detectors and touch screen Honeywell panels.  Can all of this work with Xfinity Home Security - and if so, are the technicians trained to use existing equipment, sensors and motion detectors?

Equipment must be wireless zigbee compatable to work.

Actually, I don't believe equipment from a previous system has to be zigbee compatible... Comcast installs a takeover panel that interfaces with the old system, and then that panel communicates via zigbee at that point.
