There are some things in your life that you need to know you can rely on, and one of them is your smoke detector. Your home and family depend on its protection, and you never quite know when you’re going to need it. So how do you know which model to choose? There are a lot of options in the industry, but here are just a few ways that the Vivint smoke detector stands out:

  1. 24x7x365 monitoring—Did you know that unlike a regular smoke detector, our smoke detectors are backed by an award-winning monitoring team? If your detector were ever to go off, our professionals know about it immediately and will call you to make sure you’re okay. Our average response time is about 7 seconds, and we can’t get a hold of you, we dispatch the fire department. That means that even if you’re on vacation, your home will still be safe in a fire.
  2. Photoelectric detection—This is a fancy way of saying that smoke isn’t the only thing that will make your detector go off. Our smoke alarms also detect increases in heat. That means that even wall fires—which don’t produce smoke and therefore won’t set off a normal smoke detector—are no problem for the Vivint detectors.
  3. No chirping when the battery gets low—We’ve all experienced this, but thankfully our smoke detector’s alarms and low-battery alerts all happen right through your touchscreen panel. That means that you’ll get a text message telling you that the battery needs to be changed. I think you’ll agree with me that that’s way better than beeping waking you up at 2:00 a.m.
