Win further distinguishes product’s edge in smart home market

PROVO, Utah--Vivint, a leading provider of smart home technology, today announced that the Vivint Doorbell Camera is a gold winner for Most Innovative Consumer Product of the Year in the 2015 Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. Vivint is the only smart home provider to offer a doorbell camera integrated with a smart home platform.


Released in May 2015, the Vivint Doorbell immediately records visitors approaching the doorstep and notifies homeowners on their mobile device and Vivint SkyControl panel inside the home. Homeowners can see and talk to anyone on their doorstep, and at the same time remotely unlock the door for a visitor or open the garage door for a delivery. The Vivint Doorbell Camera features the most compact design on the market, as well as a 180-degree view, night vision, live video on demand, recorded clips and customizable notifications.

"The Vivint Doorbell Camera blends ingenious technology with modern design to significantly enhance the front door experience for homeowners," said Jeff Lyman, chief marketing officer for Vivint. "It's no surprise that it has become one of our best-selling products ever. Given the large number of consumer products released this year, we are thrilled the Vivint Doorbell Camera emerged as the most innovative consumer product of 2015."
