Your new house has a pre-existing security system
Many times after you buy a home, you’ll find that the previous owners didn’t take a security system. All the devices work, are installed in the best places, and are ready to go. In this case, all you might have to do is to call and start a new service contract. A Vivint professional will still show up to make sure there are no compatibility issues, and they might offer options on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a preliminary visit, and you can get your alarm monitoring set up without having a bill for any new components -- unless you get some new devices.
The old owners can give an existing Vivint contract to your family for a nominal set-up fee to make the transfer simpler. If the owners are downsizing to a condo or smaller home, you keeping the Vivint service might be an addendum of the sale.
You are looking to move and bring your existing components with you
You may want to bring your favorite Vivint system with you to your new home when you move. That’s fairly easy to do, as modern components are portable. You can remove each component yourself or use a professional expert to take down everything. Then our installers will set up the same features -- and any new devices you want -- in your new place. Your home security contract will stay the same.
