As you start personalizing your smart home, you could have questions about if you should get all new components or if you can use your home security system with existing equipment in Camden.

If you own something like a exterior camera or a smart light, you may be in luck. You will often be able to take your old equipment and switch them to your Vivint smart home, but only if they have Z-wave linking and are able to sync with the new system. Here are some popular Camden scenes where you might want to keep your old component and slip it into the new system.

You’re buying a place with security devices

A new house may come with a home security system. All the devices work, are installed in the best places, and are ready to go. In this case, just turn on the phone to call and set up a new monitoring contract. A Vivint expert will still come to your home to ensure there are no usability problems, and they may offer ideas on an upgrade or two. It's a fast trip, and you can get your alarm monitoring set up without having a bill for any new alarms and cameras -- unless you make additions.

The outgoing homeowners can give an existing Vivint contract to your family for a one-time set-up cost to make your life a snap. If the previous owners are moving to an apartment or retirement community, turning over the home security service may be a condition of the sale.

You want to move and take your existing devices with you

You might want to bring along your existing Vivint system with you to a new home when you move. Luckily, it's fairly easy to accomplish, as most smart devices are portable. You can remove each alarm or camera by yourself or call a professional expert to take care of everything. Then a pro will set up the same features -- and any smart items you want to add -- in the new home. The home security contract will stay the same.

You own a starter alarm or camera and need to add on

Your doorbell camera, smart thermostat, or small door sensor made you see the benefits of a smart home, and now you need to build on. Don't fret too much about throwing away that lone alarm or camera because it may integrate with your new home security system. Security services like Vivint have crafted their programs by using the latest technology and allow 3rd party components.

You could erase the codes and clips you have in the cloud, as they probably won't integrate into a different mobile app. But your component will still work like it would when it was a single component. You might even discover a few new options available now that the component’s within a bigger security system.
