I should be getting my cell module and update cable in today and I’ll be taking over my Vivint installed system. I have a couple of quick questions:
I still have active monitoring service through Vivint, I am at the end of my contract and I’ve sent them my cancellation notice but don’t intend on waiting for my service to be canceled before switching my system. Since I still have active monitoring, are there any steps I need to do prior to switching out my cell module or other considerations?
I would like to update my firmware to the latest, currently I have 1.9.6 installed on my 2Gig panel. Will updating the firmware change or reset any of my current programming? All of my zones, sensor, and zwave switches are already configured “mostly” the way I want and I don’t want to start over if I don’t have to.
Since I have 1.9.6 firmware currently installed, what order do you recommend for the takeover? Should I replace and register the new cell module first or update the firmware and then swap out the cell module?
Thanks! I’m looking forward to finally being able to fully utilize my alarm system.
