When you leave home for work or a family trip, you want to feel secure in the fact that your home and family are protected. 

Thankfully, as technology becomes more advanced, so do our home security systems. In today’s modern environment, ensuring our homes and loved ones are safe is easier than ever. 

We have access to advanced home integration systems that combine security and smart home technology and provide complete app-based control. And every day, companies like Vivint are innovating new ways of giving homeowners and families peace of mind.

In fact, Vivint has been a pioneer in the smart home and home security space for years.

What is Vivint?

Vivint is a top-of-the-line home security and automation system designed to keep your home safe and your family connected. Depending on your needs, they offer everything from basic security systems to full smart home integration.

Vivint designs their technology with convenience and ease of use in mind, letting you access and manage your system through a dedicated app, regardless of which plan you choose.

Unlike other popular companies, Vivint designs and produces all of their equipment themselves. And you won’t find any of it available for purchase online.

This scarcity could be because they’re typically at the front of the pack in smart home and security innovation.

And with full control accessible on your phone, there’s no doubt that Vivint is one of the industry leaders in terms of quality and dependability.

How Does it Work?

Vivint uses state-of-the-art monitoring systems, smart devices, and security equipment to give you complete visibility and protection when you’re away from home.

There are three plans to choose from when designing your home system, and each of them features 24/7 monitoring from Vivint’s private safety center:

1. Smart Security System – This is your base security system that uses Vivint’s advanced equipment to protect your home from fires, floods, carbon monoxide (CO), and intruders. 

It comes with door monitors, motion detectors, glass break sensors, smoke and CO detectors, and water detectors. Includes mobile app access so you can keep an eye on your loved ones when you’re away.

2. Smart Home System – This system includes everything from the Smart Security System, plus all the fancy smart devices that let you open your garage and adjust the thermostat from your phone. 

Add a smart thermostat, smart locks, lights, garage door controls, speakers, and a smart hub to control it all from one place. And of course, your phone serves as a smart hub as well.

3. Smart Home Video System – Has everything from the previous two systems with up to six indoor and outdoor cameras (with night vision capabilities), including a smart doorbell camera. 

Arguably one of the coolest features, the Vivint doorbell camera features two-way communication, person detection that alerts you when it sees someone it doesn’t recognize, and package detection, so you know when you’ve got a delivery. 

The included Smart Drive device stores 24/7 footage for up to thirty days, allowing you to scrub through it on your phone anytime, anywhere.

How Do I Get Set Up?

The great thing about Vivint is that you can dress each of these systems up or down based on your unique needs. But again, you won’t be able to get a quote online.

The only way to do business with Vivint is to call them directly or have a door-to-door sales rep visit your home. You may have even had one drop by your house already.

Once you’ve customized your home system, a professional installation team will come to set it up for you.

Then, simply download and connect the app to your new Vivint system, and you’ll have 24/7 home protection at your fingertips.

What are the Benefits?

Depending on the system you chose, with Vivint, you can control virtually everything in your home from your smartphone. 

Lock doors. Turn on the lights before you go in the house. Get alerts when your garage door opens and close it remotely. Set the thermostat to adjust automatically based on occupancy…

You name it.

If an intruder sets off the system, your outdoor cameras are equipped to sound the alarm to alert the neighbors of the situation. 

One of the brilliant innovations Vivint has made so far was adding two-way communication to their indoor cameras. This breakthrough feature allows your family members to check in with you and let you know they’ve gotten home safely. 

Vivint systems provide comprehensive, leading-edge smart home technology and home security features to safeguard what matters most.
