Vivint creates smart home equipment that’s easy to use and helps to keep your family protected. If trouble ever arises, Vivint provides 24/7 professional monitoring to have someone ready to respond. With Vivint, customers can typically finance their home security systems for up to 5 years. To date, more than 1.4 million customers throughout the United States and Canada use Vivint’s smart home components. Here’s a closer look at some of the provider’s most popular security devices and features:
An innovative doorbell camera that uses two-way talk so you can speak with visitors as they approach your home without opening the door. The camera features night vision to capture crystal clear images in dark conditions, produces a live video feed, captures 30-second videos of activity you can access from Vivint’s app, and has a 180° wide-angle lens. The camera also uses Smart Visitor Detection to recognize people so you don’t receive an influx of notifications.
The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro monitors your property, and if it detects suspicious behaviors, it notifies the would-be thief they’re on camera with a built-in light that can be triggered on and a warning tone. This Vivint camera captures all movement using built-in motion sensors and creates 20-second video clips whenever activity is detected. You can watch these clips through the app at any time, and in the unfortunate event someone was trying to break in, you can send them to the police. The camera possesses infrared LED night vision capability, allowing you to receive clear images of anyone who’s lurking outside your home at night.
The Kwikset Smart Lock gives you the ability to lock or unlock your home’s doors remotely through the app, which you can access on your smartphone, computer or smartwatch. You can also unlock the door through a PIN code, allowing you and your loved ones a key-free way to securely enter or exit your home. And with the capability of holding 30 unique pass-codes, you can specify ones for your family, pet sitter, and more without ever worrying about copying or forgetting keys. The Kwikset Smart Lock also send you a text notification every time someone unlocks your door.
As its name implies, this is the hub by which you control all of your smart home features from the outdoor cameras to the Vivint doorbell camera. The seven-inch touchscreen display provides a convenient way to access controls while the user interface is easy to use. You can also use the hub to speak with visitors at your door (provided you have the doorbell camera) and communicate with Vivint monitoring agents. The hub also uses encrypted signals for all of your home’s smart and security devices to prevent hackers from accessing them.
This device allows you to open or close your garage door through the Vivint smartphone app. The app also provides notifications when someone leaves the garage door open for an extended period of time. Further, the garage door controller works in tandem with other components such as the Vivint doorbell camera in case you need to greet visitors and give them garage access from afar.
