LOS ANGELES and PROVO, Utah (October 8, 2015) Vivint, a leading provider of smart home technology, today announced a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Home Alone.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of the greatest holiday family films ever, Vivint has launched a Home Alone sweepstakes. Fans of the film can enter at www.vivint.com/homealone for a chance to win the following prizes:
- A professionally installed and monitored Vivint smart home system
- A holiday trip to Chicago, where Home Alone was filmed
- A year of free pizza, Kevin McAllister’s favorite food
In addition, Vivint is introducing a special offer throughout the month of October for new customers that features $1,500 in free equipment, including the popular Vivint Doorbell Camera, as well as free, professional installation.*
“A smart home would have saved Kevin McAllister and his family a lot of trouble,” said Jefferson Lyman, chief marketing officer at Vivint. “While Home Alone will forever remain as one of the great holiday comedies of our time, home burglaries are unfortunately a real problem, especially during the holidays. Today’s security and smart home technology allows homeowners to protect themselves from intruders, as well as stay connected to their homes while they’re away.”
The Home Alone franchise begins as eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he's not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin's rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!
Fast forward to 2015, and today’s technology makes it easy to avoid this kind of scenario. Vivint security and smart home solutions keep customers protected and connected to their homes with customized smartphone alerts and remote access to real-time video feeds. A triggered flood sensor, an exterior door left open or a broken window will alert homeowners to take immediate action. Remote management options from a smartphone, laptop or tablet give homeowners full control of their home from anywhere.
One of the main advantages of a Vivint security and smart home system is around-the-clock monitoring and support. The Vivint central monitoring center responds within seconds to medical, fire, flood, carbon monoxide and burglary alerts.
The Home Alone: 25th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition is available on Blu-ray and DVD today from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. One of the highest grossing live action comedies of all time, the film has been beautifully remastered with a new 4K transfer just in time for the holidays.
