You moved into a place with a pre-installed security system
Sometimes when people buy a house, a security system is already established. All the components function well, are installed in the best areas, and are ready to go. In this case, you might discover that you have to call and establish a new service contract. A Vivint installer will still come to your home to ensure there are no compatibility problems, and they could offer suggestions on upgrades. It's a fast appointment, and you can get your 24/7 monitoring set up without paying for any new components -- unless you add on.
The old owners can transfer an existing Vivint contract to you for a small transfer cost to make the transfer a snap. If the outgoing residents are downsizing to an apartment or smaller home, turning over the security service may be a condition of the sale.
You want to move and take your existing devices with you
You may need to bring your existing home security components with you to a new house when you move. It should be fairly simple to accomplish, as many alarms and smart devices are plug and play. You can remove each device yourself or use a professional expert to dismantle your devices. Then our installers will set up the same features -- and any additions you want to have -- in your new place. The home security contract will remain the same.
