Vivint Recognizes National Safety Month with Home Automation and Security Solutions

Vivint Protects Homeowners and Saves Lives with Home Automation and Security

PROVO, Utah, June 20, 2013 -- In recognition of National Safety Month, Vivint, the largest home automation services company in North America, is protecting homeowners from natural disasters, intrusion, fire, and more.


Through its integrated home automation platform, Vivint allows customers to receive life-saving alerts and check their system's status from anywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Vivint's solutions also enable consumers to continually monitor activity within the home, ensuring that their families and property stay safe.

Tasha Stevens of Moore, Oklahoma, recently used Vivint's severe weather alert service during the devastating EF5 tornado thatswept through the area on May 20, 2013. The alerts, which come standard in every home automation and security system in tornado-prone states, allowed Stevens to take shelter with her family, including her 76-year-old grandmother.

"The warning my system gave alongside the tornado sirens was invaluable in saving our lives," Stevens said. "And because this is such a proven product, I'm now a dedicated Vivint customer for life."

With a Vivint home automation or home security system, customers also benefit from the added protection of 24x7x365 monitoring. Vivint's award-winning monitoring center helps customers quickly and effectively in any emergency situation. Vivint has the fastest published response times in the industry, so customers can get the help they need quickly.

Pat Connally recently experienced Vivint's life-saving capabilities first-hand-helping him avoid a tragic situation. Pat was on vacation, so his son Travis and his family stayed in Pat's home in Austin, Texas while he was away. Travis and his wife left a greasy pan on top of the stove and forgot to turn the stovetop off before going to bed.

"Our smoke alarm dispatched the fire department to my home, even though I wasn't there," said Connally. "My son, his pregnant wife, and two young daughters were able to evacuate the home safely. My Vivint alarm saved their lives and our property."

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