When I moved to California in 1990, I found the town I live in to be just what I wanted, a quiet community where people were nice to each other. The town is a small rural community in the central coast of California, known well for its agriculture and faming. The town has grown quite a bit since then, and with good growth comes some bad growth, such as a big influx of transients and “pass troughs” that tend to cause some trouble. Recently, there was a break-in a few homes down from me, and even though nobody was hurt, it got me thinking just how safe is my home, with a wife and kids, I wanted to be sure that they were safe when I was away or traveling for my work.
It was then I had an opportunity to learn more about home security, and I found most companies were not cheap, most wanted to install major equipment or have me sign up for services that were either invasive or not what I wanted to have. Just when I was starting to think that having the knowledge that my home would be the safe haven I wanted it to be, I came across Vivint, a company that not only provided security, but home automation and safety services that were more realistic and very affordable.
Vivint provides a range of comprehensive security and home automation services, simplifying lives, increasing energy efficiency, and protecting families. With this company, I found that I could get the exact plan I wanted at the right price. Now I know one cannot put a price on their families’ safety, but due to the economy, it is great to find a service provider that is just as interested in your needs as you are.
When I contacted them, I was met with a no pressure, non-sales oriented question and answer session. They asked what my concerns were and what I was looking for; they listened to me and let me make the choices, after this they told me what services were available. I found that Vivint has three base plans, their Security System plan which protects the home and family, the Energy Management plan, which helps you conserve energy and makes your home more energy efficient, and the third plan is the Home Automation plan which allows you to control and monitor your home, this plan also includes all the features of the first two plans.
