You’ve just sold your house and are preparing to move into a new home. One of the things that you invested in a while back was a home security system. Obviously you are going to want to bring this with you to your new home, but can you? The answer to this question depends on how old your home security system is or whether it is hard wired. If you had to have a professional come in and install your security system, then the chances are you will be forced into leaving it in your former home.
This is often because a professionally installed security system probably uses wires and is drilled into your home for the long term. They are slightly more invasive than a wireless security system. This leads me to my next point though. Ifyou’ve invested in a wireless security system and you like it, it is very easy to pick it up and bring it with you to your new home, especially if it is a do it yourself security system that you installed on your own.
Wireless security systems are easily installed and can be picked up and moved simply to their new location. In fact, we recommend a wireless security systems for college students who move from year to year simply because most of the time they are also DIY security systems and can be easily taken from place to place.
If you already own a wireless security system and plan on bringing it with you to your new home, the actual moving process for your home security system is pretty easy. You want to make sure that you have disarmed your home security system before you do anything, though. After you have done that, just detach all of the sensors and then disconnect the control panel. Once you’ve moved and have put the home security system back up in your new home, be sure to call the security system company. You are going to want to keep them up to date on your new whereabouts in addition to making sure that everything is running properly.
So in conclusion, if you’ve got an older home security system that was installed by a professional, you are probably going to have to leave it behind. If you decide to get another for your new home, just be sure it is a wireless security system that you can install yourself (DIY security system) so that you have something for the long term.
