If there’s one place you should feel completely safe, it’s your home. But no matter where you live, threats to your home and personal safety exist, and they can take many forms.
Whether obvious or not-so-obvious, take a look at the various things that can threaten your home every day and how a Vivint system comes to your defense.
Protection against burglars
If you want a system that helps prevent a home invasion, a security system will do precisely that. Since most burglars are opportunists who want to get in and out quickly, the presence of a security system is often enough to scare them off completely.
A Vivint system goes the extra mile to protect your home from intruders with advanced devices and capabilities, such as:
- Burglary detection that includes in-home motion sensors as well as door and window sensors. If a window is broken, outside door opened, or motion is detected inside your home, an alarm will sound immediately.
- Surveillance cameras, including doorbell, outdoor, and indoor, keep an eye on every space of your home and property. Features like automatic recording, two-way talk, and superior video quality ensure you never miss a thing.
- 24/7 monitoring. What if an alarm sounds and you're not home to call 911? Vivint provides continuous monitoring. In the event your alarm sounds and you're not home, our Smart Home Specialists will send the appropriate responders to your home for you.
- Notifications via the Vivint app. You want to know what's going on at your home when you're not there. With the Vivint app, you can set custom notifications that will alert you when an alarm goes off, your doorbell rings, or you forget to lock a door.
Protection beyond burglars
Protecting your home against intruders is important, but some of the most devastating threats aren’t even caused by people—and they can’t be prevented with a standalone security camera or two.
That’s where a complete smart home system from Vivint comes in. Not only will it protect your home from intruders, but it also keeps you safe from other issues as well, including:
Anything referred to as the “silent killer” is something to be taken seriously. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless gas responsible for more than 400 deaths and 50,000 emergency room visits each year. The scariest thing about it is that it's impossible to detect without a working carbon monoxide detector.
A Vivint system protects you against this silent killer with CO detectors that accurately monitor CO levels in your home, and then immediately alert you when levels reach an unhealthy level.
