You moved into a home with an existing security system
Sometimes when you purchase a house, a security system is already installed. All the components work, are hung in the best areas, and are ready to go. In this instance, you might discover that you have to call and set up a new service contract. A Vivint professional will still show up to make sure there are no usability problems, and they may offer ideas on an upgrade or two. It's a fast appointment, and you can have your alarm monitoring set up without paying for any new components -- unless you add on.
The outgoing owners can move an existing Vivint contract to you for a nominal transfer fee to make the process a snap. If the outgoing residents are downsizing to an apartment complex or smaller home, turning over the Vivint service may be a condition of the sale.
You are looking to move and take your existing components with you
You might want to bring along your favorite home security components with you to your new home when you move. That’s pretty easy to transfer, as most components are wireless. You can uninstall each device yourself or call a Vivint expert to take care of the system. Then our installers will set up the same devices -- and any additions you need to make -- in your new place. And your home security contract will remain the same.
