Your new house has a pre-existing home security system
Many times after you purchase a home, you’ll notice that the previous owners didn’t take a security system. All the alarms and cameras work, are placed 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 contract. A Vivint installer will still come out to make sure there are no compatibility problems, and they may offer suggestions on upgrades. It's a preliminary trip, and you can get your 24/7 monitoring set up without having a bill for any new alarms and cameras -- unless you make additions.
The previous owners can transfer an existing Vivint contract to you for a nominal transfer fee to make the transfer a snap. If the owners are downsizing to an apartment complex or smaller home, you keeping the security service might be a condition of the sale.
You want to move and bring your home security devices with you
You may need to take your old home security components with you to your new home when you move. Luckily, it's pretty easy to transfer, as most components are wireless. You can remove each component yourself or call a professional expert to take care of your devices. Then a pro will put in the same components -- and any new things you need -- in your new place. Your home security contract will remain the same.
