Vivint Safety Alarms Reviews: What Our Customers Are Saying

May 18, 2021|

What’s something you want in your home, but never hope you’ll actually need it? For most people, a security system comes to mind.

Security systems provide peace of mind knowing that if there ever was an emergency in your home, you’ll be alerted quickly so you can take action.

Vivint home security systems are equipped with the state-of-the-art devices, safety alarms, and expert monitoring you need to keep your home and family safe. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Take a look at how Vivint works around the clock to keep your home safe, and what our customers say about their Vivint systems.

Safety Alarms

Safety alarms from Vivint provide protection from a wide variety of threats and emergencies your home might be susceptible to, whether it’s fire, carbon monoxide, floods, or a medical emergency. By alerting both you and our 24/7 monitoring center, you can quickly get the help you need.

Another benefit of a Vivint system and safety alarms is the ability to monitor your home no matter where you are. If an alarm in your home goes off, you’ll receive a notification on your smartphone. The monitoring center will also contact you so you can determine next steps.

Smoke detectors

Smoke detectors are life-saving devices that all homes are required by law to have. The Vivint Smoke Detector goes above and beyond traditional smoke alarms. In addition to detecting smoke and excess heat, its built-in wireless transmitter immediately notifies our 24/7 monitoring team.

When connected to your smart home system, the Vivint Smoke Detector also cuts off airflow from your HVAC system and automatically unlocks your front doors, helping slow the spread of flames and making it easier for emergency personnel to access your home.

Carbon monoxide detectors

Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that also happens to be odorless and colorless, making it especially dangerous. There’s no way of knowing it’s in your home until it’s too late, unless you have a carbon monoxide detector like the one from Vivint.

A carbon monoxide detector is essential to have in every home.

Like the smoke detector, the Vivint CO detector quickly alerts you and the monitoring center if carbon monoxide is detected in your home. You’ll have the time you need to get your family to fresh air while the monitoring center contacts emergency personnel on your behalf.

Water sensors

It’s easy for water leaks to go undetected until the damage is done. Oftentimes, leaks occur in places in the house where people don’t spend a lot of time, like the basement, a utility closet, or a laundry room.

A small sensor can prevent serious damage.

With the Vivint Water Sensor, you can identify leaks before they lead to major damage. These small devices can be placed anywhere in your home that’s prone to leaks, such as the area by your water heater or next to appliances. If excess moisture is detected, the sensor sounds an alarm and notifies you on your smartphone. It also features a built-in temperature monitor to help prevent freezing and bursting pipes.

Emergency pendants

Safety alarms help protect your home from environmental threats, but they can also help you and your loved ones get help if there’s a medical emergency. The Vivint Emergency Pendant is a small pendant that can be worn on the wrist or around the neck on a lanyard. It features an emergency button that automatically connects the wearer with the monitoring center, who will then contact an ambulance or emergency services on your behalf.

While the Emergency Pendant is especially important for seniors who are prone to falls, it’s also a useful device for anyone who lives alone, is non-verbal, or has a history of seizures or medical conditions that can cause falls or fainting spells.

What our customers are saying

If an emergency does occur in your home, you need a system you can trust to respond accurately and quickly. These testimonials from our customers show you just how Vivint works to keep you safe in an emergency.

Vivint smoke detector reviews

These customers’ experiences show just how the components of your Vivint system work together if a fire occurs:

“A few months after we got out System the unimaginable happened. We had a furnace malfunction at home and within minutes the house filled w smoke. We were at work and alerted right away on our phones. We could see the interior of the house filling with smoke, the fire dept had already been alerted and we caught them pulling up via the doorbell camera, swiped the app and unlocked front door for them to get in and then communicated with them via the interior camera/speaker until we got home. Without the system no one would have known what was going on until it was too late I’m afraid. So grateful for this system. We would have lost everything.” – Read Shane Bowler’s review

“Excellent safety item. If my home detects excessive CO or smoke, it automatically unlocks my front door for easy exit in case of emergency.” - James

Carbon monoxide detectors are truly life-saving devices that no home should be without. This customer’s close call is a testament to how important they are:

“If it had not been for Vivint my husband and I would probably be dead from carbon monoxide poisoning from out hot water heater of which we were unaware of it leaking. Their alarm notifying us and their quick response to notify our fire department saved our lives! Forever thankful!” – Read Mamaw S.’s review

Vivint Water Sensor reviews

By quickly alerting homeowners to water, the Vivint Water Sensor helps customers like Jodi prevent costly repairs:

“Have been with Vivint for awhile and WOW. Just yesterday they notified me and my tenant, that a water censor went off at one of my properties. After looking into the call, this notification saved us the hardship of a flooded basement, upon discovery, a leak on the main valve, which we were able to fix before any damage was done. The heartbreaking feeling of loosing special items that would of been destroyed by water damage was never experienced. Thanks Vivint from both families.” Read Jodi Kay Jones’s review
