You’re buying a home with security devices
A new home may come with an installed security system. All the devices function well, are installed in the right spaces, and are ready to go. In this instance, just pick up the phone to call and start a new monitoring contract. A Vivint expert will still come out to make sure there are no usability issues, and they could offer suggestions on upgrades. It's a quick visit, and you can get your monitoring set up without paying for any new devices -- unless you get some new devices.
The outgoing owners can give an existing Vivint contract to you for a small set-up cost to make the transfer simpler. If the previous owners downsize to an apartment complex or retirement community, turning over the security service might be an addendum of the sale.
You need to move and take your home security devices with you
You might want to bring along your existing smart devices with you to your new place when you move. Luckily, it's pretty simple to accomplish, as modern alarms and smart devices are plug and play. You can remove each alarm or camera by yourself or call a professional expert to come and take care of everything. Then our installers will set up the same devices -- and any smart services you need to add -- in the new place. And your home security contract will remain the same.
