Your new home has a pre-installed security system
Many times after you buy a home, you’ll find that the old owners didn’t take a smart home system. All the components work, are placed in the right areas, and are ready to go. In this instance, all you might have to do is to call and set up a new service contract. A Vivint professional will still come out to ensure there are no compatibility issues, and they could offer options on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a quick trip, and you can get your alarm monitoring set up without having a bill for any new components -- unless you add on.
The old homeowners can give an existing Vivint contract to your family for a small set-up cost to make the transfer a snap. If the previous owners are downsizing to an apartment complex or smaller home, you keeping the security contract may be an addendum of the sale.
You want to move and bring your existing equipment with you
You may need to bring along your old Vivint system with you to a new place when you move. Luckily, it's pretty easy to do, as modern smart devices are wireless. You can remove each component by yourself or use a professional expert to come and dismantle your devices. Then a pro will hang the same features -- and any new things you want -- in the new house. And your home security contract will remain the same.
