Simplify Your Life with the Vivint Home Automation Solution

National Simplify Your Life Week is Aug. 1-7----- The Vivint Home Automation System Offers Five Ways to Simplify a Home



PROVO, Utah--Vivint, the largest home automation services company in North America, is encouraging homeowners to simplify their lives in celebration of National Simplify Your Life week, Aug. 1-7.

With Vivint's Home Automation package it is now easier than ever before to secure and simplify a home, especially during the busy summer travel season.

"With today's busy schedules, the last thing a homeowner needs to worry about is whether the thermostat is at the right temperature or if the doors are locked," said Jim Nye, vice president of product management for Vivint. "The Vivint Home Automation system eliminates the worry and stress of maintaining and securing a home. It's that simple."

Vivint offers the following five ways a home automation solution can simplify your life:

*The Vivint energy management system allows customers to reduce the amount of energy they use in their homes from anywhere. Whether traveling for work or taking the kids to the park, Vivint can manage thermostats, lighting features, and small appliances all from a smartphone or computer. It all adds up to substantial monthly energy savings.

*With the Vivint home security solution, customers can remotely control locks, alarms, motion detectors, and a variety of sensors using a smartphone or computer.

*With Vivint's free app (iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android are all supported) customers can remotely arm and disarm a Vivint system.

*Homeowners may also view live video feeds of their home from a smartphone or computer. In addition, customers can receive custom notifications via text message alerting them of unusual activity, even while on vacation.

*Vivint's two-way voice feature allows its central monitoring station operators to listen and talk to homeowners when an alarm is triggered, ensuring that the proper emergency response personnel are quickly dispatched if necessary. A centralized panel enables all devices in the home the ability to "talk" to each other to ensure that every area of a home is safe.

With a one-time activation fee, plus a monthly monitoring charge, Vivint's Home Automation system provides simple, affordable and comprehensive security and home management. Customers can also add or subtract products to create a unique solution that meets the needs of their homes, families, and lives.
