Should I Take My Home Security System With Me When I Move?

Are you moving to a new home, condo or apartment? Wondering if you can or should bring your home security system with you? Here are a few things to consider. Reasons to invest in a new security system when you move While it’s possible to transfer certain wireless security devices to your new abode, wired security systems are designed for specific properties and configurations and may not be easily transferable. Moreover, your current system could be outdated or incompatible with your new home’s layout. Therefore, it might be more practical to consider an entirely new system.

Here are some examples of areas in your new home that may need an updated security solution:

  • Additional floors. If you have a second floor or basement that you didn’t have in your last home, you’ll need additional smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Moreover, basement windows are prime targets for intruders and should be protected with entry sensors.

  • Front entrance. Are you moving from the suburbs to a busy downtown street? If so, you may need enhanced security for your front and back entrances. For example, you may want to consider a video doorbell, glass break sensors and motion detectors to provide an added layer of security.

  • Outdoor areas. If you’re moving from a small condo into a home with a big backyard or long driveway, you’ll likely need an updated security system with enhanced outdoor coverage. For example, an outdoor video surveillance system and motion-activated lights would be a wise investment.

  • Garage. Does your new home have a garage? If so, you likely need to up your security needs. For instance, investing in a tilt sensor, motion-activated lights and surveillance cameras will keep your assets safe.
