Another important factor most people pay less attention to is their environment. You need to consider the place you live. Maybe the development already has security systems, or maybe the infrastructure can’t support an elaborate system. If you have signed a contractual agreement with an alarm security company, then it is up to you to make sure you are aware of all the policies. Also, be sure to ask all the “what if” questions. No question is silly, and this is you and your family’s safety we’re talking about after all.

Once you’ve found the right security company but you need to move homes, you’ll need to move the equipment too. Plus as the frequency of homeowners moving increases, it is only natural to wonder if you can take your home security with you than go through the process again.

If you installed a security system yourself and bought the equipment then it is relatively easy to uninstall and re-install the security system in your new place. You just need a drill and some more tools. You will only need to re-link your security system with the monitoring office. If your security system is professionally monitored then you will only need to tell the customer service of your move and give them the new address that you will move too. Ensure that you go through the formal procedures with the company before doing anything though.

Depending on the company, the stipulations vary from flexible move of the security system to entering into a new contractual agreement. Some companies perceive it to be beneficial to leave the old security system to new homeowners thus enticing them into continuing with the contract. Other companies are more flexible and will move your security system for an extra charge or will offer you alternative options such as an extension of the contract by another year.
