Window Sensors Change Everything

In the classic movie Home Alone, the young but resourceful Kevin McCallister outwits a pair of dumb criminals who are attempting to invade his home. In one scene, the bandit Marv slips in through a window only to find that Kevin has placed broken, jagged ornaments all over the floor. This trap was effective in slowing the bad guy down, but what a mess! You can save yourself the hassle with Vivint SmartHome window sensors.

When your security system is armed, Vivint SmartHome door and window sensors alert you immediately when a door or window is opened. Even when your security system is not armed, a notification sound can ping to let you know a window or door is ajar.

Sensors not only keep your home safe from people on the outside, but they can also be programmed to serve needs within your home, such as monitoring a medicine cabinet or a child’s room. You can make sure those sneaky teenagers don’t try to slip out undetected in the middle of the night.

Lucky for us, we don’t have to defend our homes with broken glass, tar, icy steps, or even a blowtorch. Thanks to Vivint, we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday season. Test your knowledge of Home Alone, visit to take quizzes and enter to win 3 amazing prizes!
