As you go about building your smart home, you may wonder if you should buy new equipment or if you can use your home security system with existing equipment in Little Rock.

If you have a component like a exterior camera or a smart light, you might be in luck. You should be able to take your existing devices and transfer them to a Vivint security system, but only if they use Z-wave linking and are able to sync with the new system. Here are some familiar Little Rock scenes where you may want to keep your preowned component and slip it into your new system.

You’re moving into a home with home security devices

A new home may come with a security system. All the devices work, are hung in the best areas, and are ready to go. In this instance, just turn on the phone to call and establish a new contract. A Vivint installer will still come to your home to make sure there are no integration problems, and they might offer suggestions on where you should replace bad outdated components. It's a preliminary visit, and you can have your alarm monitoring set up without having a bill for any new components -- unless you add on.

The old owners can give an existing Vivint contract to you for a one-time set-up cost to make the transfer simpler. If the previous owners are downsizing to an apartment complex or smaller home, transferring the security service might be an addendum of the sale.

You want to move and bring your old equipment with you

You may want to bring your existing home security components with you to your new house when you move. That’s pretty easy to do, as most components are portable. You can uninstall each alarm or camera yourself or use a Vivint expert to take down the system. Then our installers will put in the same devices -- and any smart devices you want to add -- in the new place. The home security contract will keep the same.

You own a starter alarm or camera and are looking to build up

Your doorbell camera, smart thermostat, or small door sensor helped you notice the benefits of a security system, and now you are thinking to expand. Don't worry too much about throwing away that lone component because it may link in with your new system. Security companies like Vivint have crafted their programs by using the latest technology and can manage most Z-wave components.

You might erase the saved data you have in the cloud, as they won’t integrate into a different mobile app. But your device will still work like it did when it was a single alarm or camera. You might even discover a few new activities that you can use now that the component’s within an all-around smart home.
