Vivint’s monthly monitoring starts out lower than Frontpoint and ADT, which makes its smart security systems accessible to a variety of budgets.
And, unlike most other security companies, Vivint includes its app at every monitoring level—so you don’t have to upgrade to enjoy the convenience of remote access.
Vivint’s equipment is on the higher end, but if you’re able to make the investment, it’s worth it. You get cutting-edge smart home technology and proprietary equipment that’s developed and manufactured in-house.
The entry-level equipment price for Vivint is around $600 USD, but you have options to either pay it all up front (which means no contract) or use Vivint Flex Pay to finance the equipment cost.
If you choose Flex Pay, you’re looking at a contract between 42 and 60 months.
Because there’s so much to choose from, Vivint provides a free security assessment to help you put together the right home security alarm system. Vivint technicians look for all of your home’s security vulnerabilities as well as your needs and preferences for home automation.
Here’s a rundown of some of Vivint’s smart home security equipment:
- Smart home panel
- Vivint Element smart thermostat
- Vivint smart locks
- Vivint doorbell camera
- Vivint indoor camera
All of Vivint’s equipment works together through the app to give you full control from one central command center. And Vivint equipment also works with third-party smart home devices like Amazon Echo and Google Assistant.
Vivint is a high-end home security company, and you get high-end customer service.
In addition to the free home security assessment, Vivint professionally installs all of your equipment and teaches you how to use it.
Vivint has won several awards for outstanding customer service and high customer satisfaction. In 2018, J.D. Power named Vivint the third-best home security company for customer satisfaction.¹
