PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vivint, a leading provider of smart home technology, helps homeowners keep their homes secure and protected when traveling during the holiday season.
The FBI reports that home burglaries occur approximately every 14.6 seconds, and the number of burglaries tends to go up during the holiday months of November and December when more homes are left unattended. Whether unoccupied for two hours or two weeks, Vivint provides consumers with the ability to make sure their families and possessions are safe this holiday season.
Consumers can customize the Vivint wireless smart home system with video and motion detectors, door locks, carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, home lighting features and more to help safeguard homes. Through the Vivint Sky mobile app, users can access and monitor their system remotely with high-definition video feeds at any time. The app will also send an alert to the homeowner’s smartphone if anything changes around the house – such as an open door or unusual activity – reassuring them that their property is protected while traveling and enjoying holiday festivities.
Miramar, Florida-based Vivint customer Carlos C. notes the convenience his Vivint system provides while he is away from home. “I was in Costa Rica, and I got a text message that my daughter set the alarm,” said Carlos. “My Vivint system lets me know what’s going on at my house whether I’m traveling halfway across the world, working in my office, or sitting on my couch. By using my iPhone, I always have easy and immediate access to my house.”
William T. from Casselburry, Florida, appreciates the affordability and reliability of his Vivint smart home system. “We live in a pretty robbery-prone area, and I couldn’t believe that for the price of a cell phone plan, I could use my cell phone or iPad to manage my door locks and motion sensors,” said William. “That gives us great peace of mind when we travel.”
