Your smart home starts with these home automation items
Your Vivint agent will help you create your system to best fit your needs. You can go ahead and include home automation devices, such as smart thermostat and smart appliances, that create a more efficient house. Then start using products that help you feel more secure, like CO detectors and flood detectors. Finally, get security system items, like glass break sensors or an outdoor camera.
You can manage every component of your smart home with the user-friendly command center. Set related activities or map out custom zones that keep your house at just the right level of comfort. Or get the Vivint App on your mobile device to monitor your home automation system no matter where you are. With Vivint’s home automation products, you're able to:
Know if the door is locked or not
With smart locks, you can lock your doors with just your smartphone. Receive notifications on your mobile phone when the children arrive home from school. Give visitors or contractors a one-use key code through the Vivint App. Know if any doors are unlocked at night without getting up from bed.
Keep your home at the ideal temperature using a smart thermostat.
Schedule your HVAC to run at a more efficient level when you’re sleeping or traveling. Remotely lower the thermostat to be at an ideal temperature when you get home from work.
Set up the garage door to open when you are in the driveway.
Check your garage door status or receive alerts if you accidentally left it up on your way to work. Open the garage remotely for big deliveries, so they don’t stay out on your front porch. Then lower the door once they're inside to keep your delivery hidden until someone is home.
Utilize smart lighting technology to [[stop wasting energy|increase energy efficiency|save on electricity.
Create energy-saving lighting schedules that align with your day-to-day activities. Set lighting to the perfect level to minimize TV glare or set up night-lights. Program routines through your mobile phone to turn on and off the lights, so you always look like you are in your home.
Manage your security cameras within the mobile Vivint App.
Your Vivint App helps you operate your home using the same home automation techniques. Receive phone alerts when your cameras notice suspicious activity. Watch high-definition real-time streams or store short video clips to review later. Or talk with delivery people with the 2-way talk functionality.
Set up your security system to run on a routine.
With the Vivint App, it’s easy to program your home security components to turn on when it’s bedtime when it’s morning. Remotely control them to disarm to let in out-of-town visitors. And get to your phone notifications if a sensor is triggered.
