Seniors from across the nation are turning to Vivint™, the largest home automation services company in North America, for the automation technologies needed to manage their home’s security and energy use.

With Vivint’s Home Automation package, comprehensive home management is easy, affordable and convenient, with accessibility to the system made possible through a computer or smartphone. From premier security, to heating and cooling, to access control and video surveillance, Vivint’s customizable packages give customers the features they need to best fit their lifestyles.

James Owen, a grandfather from Decatur, Alabama and a Vivint customer, takes frequent trips to the beach, and uses his iPhone to access the system and manage his home’s utilities when he is away.

“Even when I am away from home, I can use my phone to make sure everything is in order and the doors are locked. But my favorite feature is that I can lower the temperature of the house when I am gone, and then turn it back up when I am on the way home, which is a great way to cut back on my monthly power bills,” said Owen.

Miami resident William Toro and his wife are avid vacationers, but were always concerned for their home while they were away until they discovered Vivint’s smart home system.

“We live in a pretty robbery-prone area, and I couldn’t believe that for the price of a cell phone plan, I can use my cell phone or iPad to manage my door locks and motion sensors,” said Torro. “There are also security cameras, and I can see video feeds of my house and even my pets from wherever I am. That gives us great peace of mind whenever we travel.”

“We’ve designed our interface to be as user-friendly and intuitive as possible, and we’re glad that our customers have embraced the technologies, and have realized how beneficial our smart home system can be,” said Jim Nye, vice president of product management for Vivint.
