You moved into a house with a pre-installed security system
Sometimes when people close on a house, a home security system is already established. All the components function well, are placed in the best places, and are ready to go. In this instance, you might find that you have to call and set up a new service contract. A Vivint installer will still come out to ensure there are no usability problems, and they could offer suggestions on an upgrade or two. It's a fast trip, and you can have your monitoring set up without paying for any new alarms and cameras -- unless you get some new devices.
The outgoing homeowners can give an existing Vivint contract to your family for a nominal transfer fee to make your life easier. If the owners are moving to an apartment or retirement community, turning over the security service may be an addendum of the sale.
You want to move and bring your existing equipment with you
You may want to take your old smart devices with you to a new home when you move. Luckily, it's pretty simple to transfer, as most components are wireless. You can remove each component yourself or call a professional installer to take down everything. Then our installers will put in the same components -- and any additions you want to put in -- in your new home. The home security contract will stay the same.
