You’re moving into a home with security components
A new home may come with an existing security system. All the devices function well, are installed in the best places, and are ready to go. In this instance, just turn on the phone to call and establish a new monitoring contract. A Vivint installer will still come to your home to make sure there are no compatibility problems, and they could offer suggestions on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a fast visit, and you can get your alarm monitoring set up without having a bill for any new components -- unless you get some new devices.
The outgoing homeowners can move an existing Vivint contract to your family for a one-time transfer cost to make the process a snap. If the owners downsize to an apartment or retirement community, turning over the home security contract might be a part of the sale.
You are looking to move and take your existing equipment with you
You might need to take your favorite smart devices with you to your new house when you move. That’s pretty simple to accomplish, as modern alarms and smart devices are portable. You can take down each alarm or camera by yourself or use a professional expert to dismantle everything. Then a pro will put in the same features -- and any smart devices you need to add -- in the new place. Your home security contract will keep the same.
