All the parts of a Vivint home security system communicate wirelessly, and the system communicates with a monitoring center via a cellular uplink. This means the entire alarm system is 100% wireless, no phone line necessary. Vivint offers a touchscreen panel with every package. This control panel is the hub of your system, and it includes an LCD screen and remote access capabilities.
Vivint's streaming video allows you to watch real-time camera footage or recorded clips of your home from any location. Just pull out your smartphone or other web-enabled device to check up on your home and see camera footage.

I have been a customer with Vivint for 6 months. The first 60 days, they catered to us because we can still leave the contract during that time. As soon as those 60 days were done, they were charging us to have technicians fix THEIR faulty equipment. I have now been dealing with 4 months of faulty equipment and one technician after another coming into my home to "fix" something that mysteriously either breaks again or causes some other issue. I have been trying to get out of this contract but all they do is keep sending technicians. Right now it's been a month that my cameras don't work. They are more than happy to charge me for them, but they haven't sent anyone to fix them. They set an appointment (2 weeks after I called for it) and no one showed up. I missed a day of work to be stood up. They were supposed to call me to reschedule. A week later I was still waiting. I called them and they gave me an appointment 2 weeks from today. Don't get vivint. And don't trust reviews from anyone who has had them less than 60 days.
As a new customer with vivint , I encountered a serious system malfunction with vivint alarm system. I called vivint support and received an immediate response from their service tech. He completely replaced the existing system and was very professional and knowledgeable about his profession. My system has been working great and I'm very pleased with the organization assistance and profession.
I'm fortunate enough to be in a 36 month contract. Currently on hold with them as I write this review. They made a mistake on my billing and have refused to make the change. I was actually getting ready to purchase more equipment (again GREAT products) and here I am trying to cancel all together. My suggestion is to put your notice of cancellation in early because it's only a matter of time before they find some way to frustrate you.
