Vivint Smart Home Enhances Smart Security with New Vehicle Detection for Outdoor Camera Pro

Leveraging AI technology on Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro, Vehicle Detection equips homeowners with greater insight and peace of mind

PROVO, Utah, February 29, 2024 – Vivint Smart Home, an NRG brand, today announced Vehicle Detection, a new smart home feature that leverages the AI technology on Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro to identify when a vehicle arrives, leaves, or passes through a designated detection zone.

Vehicle Detection enhances your security by enabling real-time alerts and recordings whenever a vehicle enters the designated area. This feature, integrated with Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro, ensures you're informed about every vehicle's presence – from delivery trucks and grocery vans to unfamiliar cars. Upon detection, Vehicle Detection will immediately send a notification to your phone, allowing you to view live activity outside your home. The event is also simultaneously recorded for later review.

For added convenience, simply press and hold the notification on your phone to watch a short clip of the vehicle's activity and get immediate insight without opening your Vivint app. You can also opt to snooze notifications, ensuring you only receive alerts that matter to you.

"Vehicle Detection is an exciting addition to our Outdoor Camera Pro,” said Jim Nye, chief product officer at Vivint. “Similar to our popular Person Detection feature, Vehicle Detection boosts the intelligence and efficiency of our smart home solution, providing customers with valuable, real-time information and peace of mind. We're thrilled to enhance the capabilities of the Outdoor Camera Pro and provide customers with more insight into their home surroundings."

Vehicle Detection is now available to all Vivint customers with a Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro. To enable the feature, simply open the Outdoor Camera Pro settings on the Vivint app, tap on “notifications” and toggle the Vehicle Detection setting to “On.”
