Your new home has an existing home security system
Many times after you close on a new house, you’ll notice that the previous owners used a home security system. All the alarms and cameras work, are hung in the best spaces, and are ready to go. In this case, all you might have to do is to call and start a new monitoring contract. A Vivint expert will still come to your home to make sure there are no integration problems, and they might offer options on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a fast trip, and you can have your 24/7 monitoring set up without paying for any new alarms and cameras -- unless you make additions.
The previous owners can move an existing Vivint contract to your family for a one-time transfer cost to make your life simpler. If the previous owners downsize to a condo or retirement community, you keeping the security contract may be a part of the sale.
You are looking to move and bring your home security equipment with you
You may want to take your favorite Vivint system with you to your new house when you move. It should be fairly easy to transfer, as many components are wireless. You can remove each alarm or camera by yourself or contact a professional installer to come and take down your devices. Then a pro will hang the same devices -- and any new items you need -- in your new place. And your home security contract will remain the same.
