Your new home has a pre-existing security system
Many times after you close on a new house, you’ll see that the previous owners left a smart home system. All the devices work, are hung in the right spaces, and are ready to go. In this instance, all you might have to do is to call and establish a new monitoring contract. A Vivint expert will still come out to ensure there are no integration problems, and they could offer options on upgrades. It's a fast trip, and you can get your monitoring set up without paying for any new alarms and cameras -- unless you add on.
The previous owners can move an existing Vivint contract to your family for a small transfer cost to make the transfer a snap. If the previous owners downsize to a condo or retirement community, you keeping the home security service might be a part of the sale.
You are looking to move and take your existing equipment with you
You may need to bring along your favorite home security components with you to your new place when you move. It should be fairly easy to accomplish, as many alarms and smart devices are portable. You can remove each alarm or camera by yourself or use a professional expert to take down your devices. Then our installers will set up the same components -- and any new devices you want -- in the new place. And your home security contract will stay the same.
