Your new place has a pre-installed home security system
Many times after you buy a home, you’ll notice that the previous owners didn’t take a home security system. All the devices function well, are installed in the best places, and are ready to go. In this instance, all you might have to do is to call and start a new contract. A Vivint expert will still come out to ensure there are no compatibility issues, and they may offer suggestions on an upgrade or two. It's a fast appointment, and you can get your alarm monitoring set up without paying for any new components -- unless you add on.
The outgoing homeowners can give an existing Vivint contract to your family for a one-time set-up fee to make your life easier. If the outgoing residents are downsizing to a condo or retirement community, turning over the home security contract might be a part of the sale.
You want to move and bring your old devices with you
You might need to take your favorite Vivint system with you to your new home when you move. It should be pretty simple to transfer, as modern components are wireless. You can remove each component by yourself or use a Vivint installer to dismantle everything. Then our installers will hang the same devices -- and any new things you need -- in the new place. The home security contract will keep the same.
