Vivint Stresses Home Security During October’s National Crime Prevention Month

PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- One in five homes will experience a break-in or violent home invasion this year, an unsettling statistic – unless you are a Vivint home security customer.

As the largest home automation services company in North America, Vivint offers an array of home automation and security products ranging from remote-controlled door locks, alarms and motion detectors to sensors that can alert and feed home video to a smart phone or off-premises computer.

“Our goal is to ensure that your home and family aren’t victimized,” said Todd Pedersen, CEO and founder of Vivint. “We have a plan for every family and every budget, and whether you choose our most basic or expanded services, you can be sure of our top quality technology and expert customer support.”

Just ask Vivint customers about their service. Janice Babb of Crockett, Texas, is convinced her Vivint system aborted what could have been a costly burglary at her isolated country home earlier this year.

“Where we live, the police are not right around the corner,” Babb said. “Someone tried to break into our house exactly two minutes after we left one morning. We were notified immediately that someone had opened one of our doors and set off the alarm.”

When Babb returned home, sheriff’s deputies were waiting for her. The alarm had scared off the intruder and nothing had been taken. “We cannot thank Vivint enough for keeping us safe and protecting our home while we were away,” she said.

And then there is Andy Scott of O’Fallon, Mo. He and his family were at home when their Vivint system sounded an alarm at 3:07 a.m.

“I thought it was one of the kids sleepwalking or opening a window,” Scott said. “But it was actually our basement door,” he recalled. “Someone tried to enter my house at night while my family and I were asleep. They never set foot inside and police were there within 10 minutes.”

For as little as $68.99 a month, a Vivint customer can have a home automation package that allows remote control of lighting and door locks and immediate, video confirmation of a child's safe arrival home. Other packages offer ways to save on heating and cooling costs. Or, for just $49.99 a month, Vivint offers the best in home security alarm systems featuring remote arming and disarming and off-site monitoring.
