You’re moving into a house with home security devices
A new home may come with an existing home security system. All the components function well, are installed in the correct spaces, and are ready to go. In this example, just get the phone to call and start a new contract. A Vivint professional will still come to your home to ensure there are no compatibility issues, and they might offer suggestions on an upgrade or two. It's a quick visit, and you can have your 24/7 monitoring set up without worrying about any new alarms and cameras -- unless you add on.
The outgoing homeowners can transfer an existing Vivint contract to you for a nominal transfer fee to make the process simpler. If the previous owners are moving to an apartment complex or smaller home, you keeping the home security service might be a condition of the sale.
You want to move and bring your existing devices with you
You might want to bring along your old smart devices with you to your new place when you move. Luckily, it's pretty easy to accomplish, as most smart devices are portable. You can take down each alarm or camera by yourself or contact a professional installer to come and dismantle your devices. Then our installers will set up the same features -- and any smart devices you need to add -- in the new place. Your home security contract will remain the same.
