You’re moving into a home with home security components
A new home may come with a security system. All the components work, are installed in the right areas, and are ready to go. In this example, just get the phone to call and start a new service contract. A Vivint professional will still come out to make sure there are no integration problems, and they could offer options on upgrades. It's a fast appointment, and you can have your alarm monitoring set up without having a bill for any new components -- unless you make additions.
The old homeowners can give an existing Vivint contract to you for a one-time transfer cost to make the transfer simpler. If the previous owners downsize to an apartment complex or smaller home, you keeping the home security contract might be a part of the sale.
You want to move and take your old components with you
You might need to bring your favorite smart devices with you to a new home when you move. It should be pretty easy to transfer, as many alarms and smart devices are wireless. You can take down each component yourself or contact a Vivint installer to come and take down everything. Then our installers will set up the same components -- and any smart devices you want to add -- in your new home. And your home security contract will stay the same.
