You moved into a home with an existing home security system
Sometimes when people purchase a home, a home security system is already in use. All the alarms and cameras work, are placed in the correct areas, and are ready to go. In this example, you might see that you have to call and set up a new contract. A Vivint installer will still come to your home to ensure there are no compatibility problems, and they might offer ideas on upgrades. It's a fast appointment, and you can have your monitoring set up without having a bill for any new alarms and cameras -- unless you add on.
The old owners can transfer an existing Vivint contract to your family for a one-time transfer cost to make your life easier. If the owners downsize to an apartment or smaller home, turning over the Vivint service might be a part of the sale.
You are looking to move and take your old components with you
You might need to bring your favorite smart devices with you to your new place when you move. That’s fairly easy to do, as many components are portable. You can remove each component yourself or call a professional expert to come and take down the system. Then our installers will hang the same components -- and any additions you want to put in -- in your new place. The home security contract will keep the same.
