Jack Fanning joined the Air Force in 1997 and served six tours in Afghanistan and Iraq before joining an elite unit in 2009. During a special ops training course in 2010, Jack parachuted into a blacked-out drop zone and sustained a severe spinal cord injury. Jack was paralyzed from the neck down and is now a C4 incomplete quadriplegic.
Despite all of Jack’s efforts to be as independent and active as possible, he was still very limited in his home. He couldn’t answer the door if someone rang the doorbell. His injury made it so his body is unable to control his internal temperature, yet when he was too cold or too hot, he couldn’t adjust the thermostat. He was totally reliant on his caregivers to manage how he functioned in his own home, which he had to leave unlocked at all times for his caregivers to be able to come and go as needed. Not ideal for security, and definitely not an ideal situation for fiercely independent Jack. Then Jack found out about Vivint Smart Home and the independence it provides him.
Jack uses his special stylus and the Vivint Smart Home app to see who is at the front door.
He now uses the Vivint Smart Home app and integrated Amazon Echo to answer the door and adjust the thermostat with a simple tap of his special stylus, or even just his voice. He can create user codes for each of his caregivers, so he doesn’t have to leave his home unsecured, giving him greater peace of mind. For Jack, Vivint’s smart home technology has brought a life-changing level of freedom, control, and independence not only within his own home but anywhere he takes his smart phone.
