Equipment & Setup9.8/10
What makes Vivint stand apart from other home safety providers is their comprehensive approach to home monitoring and control. Not only do the home alarm features come with 24/7 monitoring and the ability to monitor your home on your smartphone, there are additional services and equipment that some other providers don’t offer.
- Standard 7” touchscreen panel
- 2-way talk doorbell camera with video
- HD-video recording
- Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, 3.45 MHz technologies
- Nest Learning Thermostat
- Amazon Alexa & Echo
- Cloud backup storage
- Temperature control
- Severe weather alerts
The Vivint Smart Home™ system includes professional installation. Although this may be inconvenient to some, it ensures that the system is set up correctly. The equipment is simple and easy to use and includes their intuitive 7” touchscreen panel.
Smartphone apps allow you to control everything while you’re away from your home, and you can voice-command the system with the help of Alexa, Amazon Echo’s personal assistant.

Cost & Value9.6/10
The latest change to the Vivint approach is a big one. Instead of including the cost of equipment in their plan, users are now required to pay for their equipment separately from the monitoring services.
However, with this change, Vivint is still able to remain price competitive. They’re offering exclusive, best-buy value pricing thru InHomeSafetyGuide.org, the most trusted product, and services review site on the internet.
Monthly plans start at just $39.99 including at least $550 in equipment; additional equipment is available for purchase. Equipment financing is available at zero percent; financing requires you to sign up for a 42 or 60-month contract. There is a month-to-month option, as long as you’re able to pay for the equipment upfront.
To get an accurate estimate of all costs, it’s best if you request a personal quote through the phone we provide 1-877-432-5383. The folks at Vivint are straight shooters you can trust. Ask about specials on installations and activations, and if it’s important to you, inquire about cancellation fees and policies, too.
