Your new home has a pre-installed home security system
Many times after you close on a home, you’ll find that the previous owners left a smart home system. All the devices work, are placed in the best places, 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 show up to make sure there are no integration problems, and they might offer options on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a preliminary appointment, and you can get your monitoring set up without worrying about any new alarms and cameras -- unless you make additions.
The old owners can move an existing Vivint contract to your family for a one-time transfer cost to make your life a snap. If the owners are moving to an apartment or retirement community, transferring the security service may be an addendum of the sale.
You are looking to move and take your existing equipment with you
You may need to bring your old smart devices with you to your new place when you move. Luckily, it's pretty easy to do, as many components are plug and play. You can remove each component yourself or use a professional expert to take care of everything. Then our installers will set up the same devices -- and any new things you want -- in the new home. Your home security contract will stay the same.
