What our customers are saying.

Vivint's system and technology is up there with the best of them. I can control my alarm system from anywhere and view my cameras too. The system also has a digital 30-day continuous recording which makes it easy for me to keep and manage.


Someone stole the package from my front stoop. I was able to share the recording of the thief with UPS and the police and in doing so was able to get a new order from the company. I have recommended Vivint to all my friends!
