You’re relocating to a house with security components
A new home may come with an installed security system. All the devices work, are hung in the correct places, and are ready to go. In this instance, just get the phone to call and set up a new service contract. A Vivint professional will still show up to ensure there are no integration problems, and they might offer suggestions on an upgrade or two. It's a fast trip, and you can have your 24/7 monitoring set up without having a bill for any new alarms and cameras -- unless you make additions.
The old homeowners can move an existing Vivint contract to your family for a small set-up cost to make the process a snap. If the owners are moving to a condo or smaller home, you keeping the home security service might be a part of the sale.
You need to move and take your home security components with you
You may want to bring along your favorite Vivint system with you to a new home when you move. That’s fairly easy to transfer, as many alarms and smart devices are plug and play. You can uninstall each component by yourself or use a Vivint installer to come and take down your devices. Then a pro will set up the same features -- and any smart items you want to add -- in your new place. Your home security contract will keep the same.
