Depending on where you live having a home that provides safety for your family is critical. While some places may be safer than others, there are others where you could use so much more safety too. Vivint has taken control of safety for your home. At the touch of a button, you can control your home and your family’s safety and feel that much more in control with Vivint.
Recently I visited my local Best Buy to learn more about Vivint and I am glad that I did. I had not heard about Vivint before, but after hearing about it, I was sold on what it offers.
Vivint, provides you the ability to control all of their devices all in one application. You start with the main panel and then add onto this to add in new security features. For example, the interior or exterior camera will capture any instance of movement. The Vivint panel itself holds 14 days of video and you can even move clips from the panel to your phone if you want. You can add on sensors to windows and doors if you like, to add in alerts when they are open, again to take control of your understanding of what is happening in your own home.
In speaking with the salesman, he stated that you do start with the Vivint panel and he mentioned that many will add on the Thermostat, smart switches, cameras or other devices depending on your own budget. The panel costs varies right now because of the launch of the Vivint products. I explored the items at the Best Buy that I visited and found that the panel and a few items usually would cost about $1000-$1100. You can save money ultimately though if you add on the thermostat through power companies like Consumers Energy and Detroit Edison or other power companies because these will help you save even more by better controlling heat/cooling based on when you are in the home.
Other people will start with the panel, but then will add on the doorbell which comes with a camera and adding on a outdoor or indoor camera. The door lock system that they provide is something that allows you to actually unlock the door remotely if needed by the application that you can run on your phone. Imagine, you are away from your home, someone clicks on your doorbell, from your application you can see who is at the door even from 100’s of miles away and then you could even unlock the door for the person. (I was amazed!).
Depending on what you add to your system, if you add in a thermostat you can work with the system to allow if to adjust your temperature, turn on or off lights, lock doors, etc. Vivint really gives you complete control of your home, making it safe for your entire family!
Vivint offers you an optional Sky Drive for $49.99 a month and with this they offer monitoring by police, medical and fire as well as a 30 day history of video that you can access.
