Vivint provides Round Lake residents with industry-leading smart home technology

If you're like most Americans, you've spent years, or even decades, working towards the goal of home ownership. Like many of us, your home is the biggest single purchase you'll ever make. And now that you've arrived, it's time to protect your investment. After all, home is where you keep your most prized possessions, the place you count on to be a refuge from the stress of everyday life. Your home is more than a collection of steel, concrete, wood, and glass; it's your personal refuge, and you count on your home to keep you and your loved ones safe and secure. Wouldn't you love to remain in complete control of your home, even when you're not there? With the Vivint system, you can. Our proprietary control platform, Vivint Smart Drive, creates an intelligence layer in your home control systems. Vivint Smart Drive is responsible for the smooth operation of your integrated smart home and can be accessed through three different channels:

  1. Vivint Smart Hub - A WiFi, cellular, Z-Wave, and 345 MHz touchscreen panel that mounts inside your home, bundles your devices into one network, and connects directly to 24/7 monitoring services.
  2. Vivint Mobile - The top-rated smart home app on The App Store that gives you access to your Vivint Smart Hub dashboard through your smartphone or tablet.
  3. Amazon Echo - Tell the Amazon smart assistant, Alexa, what you want your smart home to do, whether it's lock doors, adjust temperatures, arm security systems, or play music and she controls Vivint Smart Drive for you.

Smart, simple security for your home

With the Vivint system, you have access to cutting edge technology that is designed to make your home more energy efficient, intelligent and, of course, secure. We go far beyond simple door alarms to offer a full suite of products that work together to provide the ultimate experience in smart home living. There are many other benefits that come with a home security and automation system, including but not limited to the following items:

  • Vivint Water Sensor to protect against water damage and pipe-freezing by sending push-notifications when temperatures drop or moisture levels rise beyond set parameters in or around your home.
  • Outdoor HD cameras with infrared technology, letting you keep an eye on your property from anywhere in the world with an internet connection and receiving an alert if someone is on your property.
  • Smoke alarm with photoelectric detection technology; the smoke alarm is supported by our 24/7 monitoring team and sends an alert to Vivint Smart Drive if smoke or elevated temperatures are detected.
  • Tamper-resistant Vivint Security Sensor, which can be installed onto the entry points, doors or windows, of your home as well as any closet or cabinet where you want to control access.

Carbon monoxide gas leaks, electrical fires, flooded basements, and frozen pipes are all possibilities in a residence. With Vivint, you'll receive not only high-quality security components, but also the best 24/7 support from our in-house monitoring team. With our industry-leading response times, we ensure that you have the assistance you need when you need it, even if you're unable to call for help.

Because Round Lake homeowners want a smart home system that's intelligent, not just programmable

Round Lake can get extremely cold; all residents know that. We have the solution! With the Vivint Smart Hub, the intelligence layer of Vivint Smart Drive, you can actually save money on your home heating and cooling costs, without compromising on your comfort. Over time, your Vivint Smart Hub will learn how you use your home by integrating data from your in-home sensors, devices, and user profiles. The Vivint Smart Hub will gradually begin to adjust your wireless thermostat to set your home at your preferred temperature while you're at home and conserve energy while you're away. What intelligence features (not just programmability features) can make a difference in your home?

  • The Vivint Indoor Camera, a simple countertop video camera that lets you check in on pets, children and suspected activity.
  • The Vivint Garage Door Controller, which allows you to remotely open and close your garage door; never spend another work day or vacation wondering if your home's security is compromised by an open garage.
  • The Vivint app, which gives you complete mobile access to your home controls.

Frequently asked home security questions in Illinois

How much does home security cost monthly?

The total cost of a home security system for your Illinois home can be measured in three phases: purchase price, installation costs, and operating costs over time. Purchase price varies by provider, equipment package, and payment options. Vivint, for example, offers a consumer financing option that gives customers the ability to customize a state-of-the-art smart home security package for little to no upfront cost

Some lower-quality home security systems come with only basic door and window sensors that customers can easily install themselves. More high-end equipment packages—like the ones Vivint provides—come with a touchscreen control panel and the option to add outdoor home security cameras, all of which require professional installation. Professional installation services may cost up to $250.

The home security market offers many plug-and-play equipment packages that center around an audible alarm to deter intruders who trigger a door or window sensor. They do not offer professional monitoring, so there’s no monthly service contract involved. Monitored home security systems cost between $20 and $60 per month.

Home security offers more than just crime prevention. Protection from natural disasters, home appliance malfunctions, and medical emergencies should also be considered. In addition to providing more comprehensive protection, complete home security systems backed by professional monitoring services may also qualify customers for discounted homeowner’s insurance premiums of up to 20%.
