Vivint also named the “Best Professionally Installed Security System”

PROVO, Utah – March 11, 2019 – Vivint Smart Home (NYSE:VVNT), a leading smart home company in North America, today announced that U.S. News & World Report named the company a "Best Home Security System 2020.” This marks Vivint’s second year among the best smart home security systems in the U.S. News 360 Reviews’ guide to home security. U.S. News also named Vivint the “Best Professionally Installed Security System” and one of the “Best Home Security System with Cameras” for 2020 and 2019.

The U.S. News guide to home security features in-depth information on choosing a home security system and covers a range of options, from cost and features to length-of-contract and size of network. The guide is the most comprehensive review of both professionally installed and DIY security systems.

“Recognition as best in class from U.S. News two years in a row highlights our commitment to creating innovative technology and providing a great customer experience,” said JT Hwang, chief technology officer at Vivint Smart Home. “With an integrated suite of products, professional services and flexible pricing, we’re making it easy for consumers to create an affordable and comprehensive smart home.”

U.S. News highlighted the following benefits of a Vivint smart home system:

“The reason to select a professionally installed home security system instead of a DIY package is to get experienced help in customizing a system based on your needs, and then to utilize an adequate set of devices to satisfy those needs. Vivint is a complete home tech solution. The company has an extensive list of tightly integrated equipment, plus its emphasis on an entire smart home provides devices like cameras, door locks and thermostats that are integrated and managed via the control panel or the Vivint Smart Home mobile app.”
