Vivint™, the largest home automation services company in North America, is helping consumers keep their children safe this summer with home automation.

Now that summer is here, kids are spending more time around their neighborhoods and in and around the house. Especially for parents that work, it can be difficult to keep an eye on things and know the kids are safe at all times.

But thanks to home automation features like security, cameras, and remote access, Vivint systems can let parents see exactly what’s happening at home and know their children are safe. All Vivint equipment is monitored 24x7x365 by the company’s award-winning monitoring center, and consumers can also view live video feed or saved clips of their homes right from their smartphones.

Allen Dobson from Evans, Georgia, has found his system to be a great way to rest easy and stay connected to his family—even while he’s in the office this summer. “I have to say I am loving my service with Vivint!” says Evans. “I have not only great security, but the best babysitter for my teenagers ever. Who knew that a security system could be so great at watching my kids while I’m at work? I know if the dogs are being let out or kept out all day, and now that it’s summertime, I can use the cameras to see that chores are getting done and that they’re not watching TV first."

Homeowners can feel confident that this system is not only affordable, but simple. Even children who are home alone can use any Vivint product and arm and disarm the security system. The “Vivint Live” two-way voice feature also ensures parents that a monitoring professional will respond immediately if the system is triggered in the event of an emergency.

Brian Smiley in particular appreciates this benefit of the system. He uses Vivint to manage his Minneapolis home remotely and check up on the kids during the summer, but he also loves the system’s kid-friendly design.

“My youngest child had a hard time managing our last security system,” Smiley recalls, “and she was always worried about setting off the alarm. But with the Vivint system, she’s been a lot more confident in her ability to use the system and in her safety. The peace of mind the Vivint system gives my daughter is worth every penny.”
