Americans today honor the value and contribution of the nation's elderly population with National Senior Citizens Day - a salute shared by Vivint™, the largest home automation services company in North America.

Vivint safeguards seniors across the United States from theft and intrusion with its home security system and remote access and monitoring features. The Vivint home security system provides premier protection backed by advanced technology that can be easily controlled from a smartphone, computer or web-enabled device. The company is committed to ensuring communities are safe places for families and individuals of all ages.

"I recently became a widow and the Vivint security system allows me to rest better at night," said 66-year-old Vivint customer Charlene Rees of Nacogdoches, Texas. "Being notified instantly when there's a problem in my home is so important to me; I cannot say enough good things about Vivint."

In addition to the security system and remote access features, Vivint also offers a medical pendant that seniors can wear around their neck and press in a moment of duress or medical emergency.

"We cherish the peace of mind that Vivint brings to seniors across America," said Todd Pedersen, CEO of Vivint. "Our customers know how much we value their safety and well-being."

Trudy Krause, age 83, of Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas, enhanced her home with Vivint's intelligent home security system, which includes a centralized panel, automated door locks, alarms, motion detectors and a variety of sensors that work together to ensure every area of the home is safe.

"I only had Vivint for about a month when I needed to call the ambulance for my husband," said Trudy. "He had a high fever and started shaking violently, so I hit the 'panic' button on my panel, and within a split second someone was there to help me."

Trudy acknowledges that Vivint was there for her in a moment of crisis. "The Vivint employee was friendly, reassuring and stayed on the line with me until the ambulance was on its way. I am grateful to Vivint for such a great service."
