PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vivint™, one of the nation’s largest home automation companies, today announced new products and services that include automatic door locks, video surveillance and lighting and small appliance control. These additions to the Vivint product line will provide increased safety for families, improved energy efficiency throughout the home, and greater convenience for customers.
Vivint’s new home automation products are specifically designed to integrate with the company’s existing security and energy management systems, creating a full-service home automation system for residential customers across the United States and Canada. At the center is the Vivint Go!Control panel, a central touch screen panel that communicates between each home automation product, giving customers access to their entire system via the touch of a button or remote control access via their smart phone or Internet browser.
According to an independent March 10, 2009 Forrester Research, Inc. report titled Consumers Are Ready For Home Remote Control, “the most interesting functions to control remotely relate to security and cost: lights, home monitoring and climate.”
“I love the ease and flexibility of my Vivint system,” said customer Raymond Izaac. “The Vivint technicians are extremely knowledgeable and the products are affordable and simple to use. I love knowing that my family is protected and that I have personal control of my home’s energy management.”
“Our Vivint products combine the comfort of home security with the latest advances in home automation and energy efficiency,” said Alex Dunn, chief operating officer of Vivint. “By bringing these products to market, we are making home automation simple and affordable for the mainstream consumer.”
