Peace of mind while overseas

For military families, the Ping Camera provides a way to stay connected to family members while providing added security around the house:

"When I was deployed overseas, we had very limited time on the phone and I wanted to ensure my wife and children were safe and secure. Daily I would go to the MWR and watch real time footage or even talk to them through the camera. It was great—security and contact all in one. I feel secure at night and my family loves the protection. I run a security business with my family and still utilize Vivint. High quality service at affordable prices." Brett L., Kings Park, NY

"I am so impressed and in love with our home security system! It's also doubled as a way for my husband to check in on us and feel included in our day to day activities. He can view the indoor cameras from anywhere and talk to us while we sit down for dinner. Excellent service for military families." - Taylor C., Fort Hood, TX

Keeping an eye on loved ones and pets

Families of those with special needs love how the Ping Camera gives them a way to keep an eye on their loved ones when away:

“I have a disabled daughter who lives with me and I often have to leave her home alone for a few hours. The security I have felt in being able to check in with her and see how she's doing through my Ping indoor camera is amazing! She can now open and lock the door with her cell phone when she gets home from work. That is a feature that helps her as she has cerebral palsy and has little use of one hand. She feels so much more secure and safe now also. Thank you for helping us.” - Diana H., Fairfield, CA

“We have a son with autism who has been a runner for quite a few years. Long story short, we have spent the past few years never letting him out of our sight. Between my husband and I, we found that having one of us always having eyes on him was the only way we could keep him safe. Tonight, a few days after having the Vivint Smart Home installed, we left him at home with our teenage daughter and went to a movie. I will never be able to describe the peace of mind we had in being able to check my phone (pretty much every 5 minutes during the movie) and see him safe! It was amazing! This is the gift that Vivint is giving to many families like us and we'll never be able to be thankful enough!” - Ramona B., Orem, UT

“We are parents of a 46 year old daughter that was born deaf and has cerebral palsy. We have very seldom had any type of respite in our 46 years as parents. Since Vivint cameras were installed in our home it has been easier to go out for a few hours. We are able to watch her from our phone, iPad, and laptop. I can call the nanny and point out a sign language to help communicate with her. If it were not for Vivint, I would not be able to see who is supposed to be caring for my loved one. Thanks Vivint!” -Vivian G., Mesquite, TX

"I LOVE my Vivint System! As a mom who recently went back to work it gives me peace of my mind when I'm away from home. I check in on the kids. I ensure my husband and kids shut the garage door. If not, no big deal, push of a button on my phone! LOVE!!! When we travel out of town we feel safe knowing our house is protected. We can log in anywhere and check on the dogs. It's amazing. I can't believe anyone lives without it. LOVE IT! Thank you for making my life as a mom easier!" - Devin C., Camas, WA

Protecting your home 

The Vivint Ping Camera has impressive motion detection capabilities, picking up on things like sound and smoke and alerting authorities:

"I left my house and armed my Vivint system. Thirty-five minutes after I left my camera detected motion in my home. I pulled up the camera on my application on my phone. I could see smoke! One minute later the smoke alarm alerted Vivint. My camera was so sensitive that it detected the motion of smoke in its view! The Fire Chief saw my videos of the smoke when the events triggered the camera and said HE HAS NEVER SEEN AN ALARM SYSTEM DO THAT!" - Courtney J., Byron, GA

This Vivint customer's Ping immediately started recording after picking up sounds made by the intruder:

"Although [the intruder] generally knew of my cameras and stayed out of sight line, he didn't know sound is a 'motion.' The sounds he created were recorded and in one view his face (along with about ten 20-second clips) by my Ping cameras. [The cameras] were set off by motion created by the sound of him opening drawers, closet doors, and speaking with my little dog. It was enough evidence for the DA to charge him with an indisputable case of illegal entry, thanks to Vivint." -Bobby, McDonough, GA

An excellent Ping Camera review from PC Mag

PC Mag recently reviewed the Vivint Ping Camera, giving it 4 stars and an Excellent rating. 

The publication called out a number of features that make this security camera a standout choice, including: 

One-touch callout 

According to PC Mag, "The Vivint Ping is the first camera we've tested that allows you to press a button on the camera itself to initiate a video call to a phone or tablet." This feature is particularly useful for parents whose kids aren't ready for a cell phone but still want them to be able to quickly and easily get ahold of them.

Two-way talk

With the two-way talk feature, you can speak to your family members while you see them, transforming your call into a video call. It's a must-have feature in any smart home security camera, and PC Mag reported the Ping's "audio quality in two-way communications was clean and easy to understand."

Clear live and recorded HD image 

Whether streaming live on your Vivint Smart Home app or watching recording clips later, the Ping "delivered top-notch 1080p video quality in our tests. Daytime color was rich and saturated, and image detail was excellent. Black-and-white night vision video was also highly detailed, with good contrast and balanced lighting." 

Custom notifications

You'll receive notifications on your smart phone whenever motion is detected on the Ping or you get an outgoing call from the camera. The immediate push notifications make sure you stay connected to your family wherever you are.
