Protecting our homes and families is a big priority. But getting standard home security system is extremely expensive and setting up your own smart home system can seem daunting. Rolling out this summer at Best Buy, is a new way to protect your home – Vivint Smart Home Systems. This new to the market home security system is easily integrated in your home and even comes with installation making it easy to use immediately.
Since Vivint is a new system, there are demo locations at select Best Buy stores in the Metro- Detroit and Metro-San Antonio areas. More locations will be spreading throughout the nation soon. At the store demo you are able to see the different products that go into the Vivint system from the app that is included, the home hub, the cameras and even the smart lock system.
Vivint offers a complete customization of your smart home system, and prides themselves in not making two of the same systems. Want each kid to have their own code to get in the door – done! Want text alerts when someone unlocks the door with their code or triggers the front door camera? Easy!
One of my favorite things you can do with Vivint is always see who is at your front door with their smart door system. Not only can you see who is there on the door panel video, but you can see it on the app when you’re away. You can even speak thru the app and it comes out the front door just like you were home. If you feel comfortable with it, you can even unlock the door and let the delivery person leave packages for you while you’re away. I don’t think I would choose that option, but if you know your UPS or FedEx person by name, it may be something you choose to do.
Vivint allows you to set up the package that is perfect for you and your family and you can even use some of the technology you already have in your home like the Nest Thermostat. More partnerships are in the works like Philips Hue smart lights. All of the technology will work flawlessly together through the Vivint App and you control your home anywhere you are.
When you first build your Vivint package you select the technology you will need. You are buying these pieces, and they will go on your Best Buy account over 24 or 36 months. Once paid off they are yours completely and can be used with the Vivint service package you have selected. With a low monthly service payment Vivint prices well below their competitors and the technology can work without the subscription as well.
Vivint is making setting up your smart home easy, affordable and putting control of your home back in your hands. Be sure to stop in to see one of the Vivint demos and take a walk through your future smart house!
