Your new place has a pre-existing security system
Many times after you purchase a new house, you’ll see that the previous owners left a smart home system. All the devices work, are hung in the right spaces, and are ready to go. In this case, all you might have to do is to call and set up a new service contract. A Vivint installer will still show up to make sure there are no integration problems, and they could offer options on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a quick trip, and you can have your alarm monitoring set up without worrying about any new alarms and cameras -- unless you get some new devices.
The outgoing homeowners can move an existing Vivint contract to you for a small set-up cost to make your life simpler. If the owners are downsizing to a condo or smaller home, transferring the home security contract may be an addendum of the sale.
You need to move and bring your existing devices with you
You may want to bring your old home security components with you to a new place when you move. Luckily, it's fairly simple to do, as most components are wireless. You can take down each alarm or camera by yourself or call a professional installer to come and take down the system. Then our installers will hang the same devices -- and any new devices you need -- in your new place. Your home security contract will remain the same.
