Canadians have set aside June as National Seniors Month to both honor their senior citizens and focus on the challenges of aging—a commitment shared by Vivint™, the largest home automation services company in North America.

From its offices throughout Canada, Vivint offers an array of state-of-the-industry products, including home security and personal medical alert technologies designed for seniors. A favorite in that demographic is the Vivint Medical Pendant, which transmits an emergency signal from any location within range of the home alarm system. The pendant can easily be mounted on the wall or worn around the neck, wrist or on a belt.

“The Vivint Medical Pendant is ideal for us,” said 86-year-old Vivint customer James Janz of Kelowna, British Columbia. “Knowing help is just a button’s touch away in a medical emergency is a great relief. Vivint’s customer support staff is always quick to respond; we know we are in good hands.”

“The medical pendant is one of our top sellers,” said Todd Pedersen, CEO of Vivint. “Knowing that we can offer such a device that is both inexpensive and a potential life-saver makes us proud.”

Bud Lovegren, age 76, of Red Deer, Alberta, has deployed Vivint’s unmatched home security and automation products. The company’s suite of home automation products enables protection against intruders, control of door locks, heating, cooling and lighting through an easy-to-use smartphone, tablet or laptop remote application.

“Vivint’s representatives stress ‘peace of mind’ in discussing the company’s products, and they mean it,” said Bud. “The home automation and remote access give us complete control, even when we’re visiting our grandchildren in the United States. And if I forget to lock a door, I can immediately correct that with a touch of a button on my smartphone.”

Learning how to use Vivint’s services is not nearly as difficult as some seniors might think, adds Bud. “The installation process was very smooth. The customer service representatives showed up on time and taught us how to work the system, which is incredibly intuitive,” he said.
