You’re relocating to a house with home security components
A new home may come with an existing home security system. All the components work, are installed in the correct areas, and are ready to go. In this example, just turn on the phone to call and set up a new monitoring contract. A Vivint installer will still come out to make sure there are no integration problems, and they may offer ideas on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a quick trip, and you can have your monitoring set up without having a bill for any new components -- unless you add on.
The previous homeowners can move an existing Vivint contract to you for a small set-up cost to make the process simpler. If the owners are moving to an apartment complex or smaller home, you keeping the security service might be an addendum of the sale.
You want to move and bring your home security components with you
You might need to bring your old smart devices with you to a new house when you move. That’s pretty simple to accomplish, as modern alarms and smart devices are wireless. You can take down each device by yourself or use a Vivint installer to come and dismantle your devices. Then a pro will hang the same features -- and any smart items you need to add -- in the new place. And your home security contract will keep the same.
