Your new house has an existing security system
Many times after you close on a home, you’ll find that the old owners left a security system. All the devices function well, are installed in the best spaces, and are ready to go. In this example, all you may have to do is to call and start a new service contract. A Vivint installer will still show up to make sure there are no compatibility problems, and they may offer ideas on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a fast appointment, and you can get your monitoring set up without paying for any new devices -- unless you get some new devices.
The outgoing homeowners can give an existing Vivint contract to your family for a small transfer cost to make your life a snap. If the outgoing residents are downsizing to a condo or retirement community, turning over the home security service might be an addendum of the sale.
You want to move and bring your old components with you
You may need to bring along your old smart devices with you to your new home when you move. Luckily, it's fairly easy to transfer, as modern components are plug and play. You can remove each device by yourself or call a Vivint expert to come and take care of everything. Then our installers will put in the same features -- and any new devices you need -- in your new place. Your home security contract will keep the same.
