Vivint has a good offering and I signed up for a 5 year deal, however they are not equipped to support their systems. Strike one: I signed up for 5 years because along with their security system, I was also told that they would be installing solar panels for free in our area the next year. That of course was just a complete lie. In the meantime we have had numerous problems that they have no clue how to solve. It ranged from just plain ignorance to supplying a thermostat "expert" who told me he knew nothing about thermostats. I could go on for another 20 lines but I won't bore you. They have potential, but need to become far more professional to deserve the 69.95 I pay a month.
I hate this company! I was tricked into a five year contract by a salesman that was hired for the summer and now gone and cannot be contacted. He told me to go ahead and say yes when ask on the phone to confirm his sales pitch to a 60 month contract, which I had negotiated a 3 year, and he would have it corrected when he got back into the office. Immediately I began calling customer service about what had happened, but they would not correct this. The equipment is cheaply made and never seems to be working when I have needed it too. I have had two thefts and the cameras never picked up anything. I am not happy with this company and its service. I am stuck in a contract with... Read More
Had them for a few years. Difficult to get answers via email. Forced to call customer service. Gave me a very difficult time when I moved and had to closed my contract. Personally, I would never use them again. Contract wants to be for a lifetime !!
My wife and I had protection 1 and we're having issues due to a lack of communication on their part. We got excited when the vivint sales rep came to our porch. They offered more and newer goodies for the same price so we decided to switch systems. Protection 1 had hidden fees for cancellation but the vivint techs paid the cancellation fee for us. Then the storms came and our house was struck by lightning, and our panel took the brunt and didn't communicate with the rest of the system. I contacted costumer service and set up for a tech to come out and fix it for the following Thursday. Then I received a phone call from a technician saying that he could be there later that night. I work... Read More
Vivent is very helpful in the beginning, almost pushing you to install their system and telling you if you don't like it they will happily remove it, no questions asked. We were really concerned about the system being what we wanted since you are locked into a 3.5 year contract so we asked specifically about the removal and reinstatement of the old system. No problem, they said. Our home is 2 story, no problem they said, we will put a panel upstairs and you can always use your cell phone. What they don't tell you is the secondary panel is silent with no lights. You can't tell if the system is armed or not and you can't hear the doors open/close because the chime if from the...

Vivint promised a 2500 dollar credit on all equip and to install when I asked about that credit vivint said that I didn't sign up for that. Even when i know i ordered that. they have promised to hook up my electric heat and air but have said it is not available. GOOD LUCK
This is a wonderful system with awesome support. My first system was ADT. They are the most difficult to deal with and every problem with their system costs you money to get fixed. Vivint is very reliable, only one problem in 3 yrs. it was fixed immediately at no cost. Super system, fantastic people to work with.
I have been trying to cancel my account for 2 months. $120 dollars, several phone calls and a mental breakdown later I am still paying. You need to call then send a document then call again so on and so forth. Customer service designed to squeeze the life out of you. Go with a company that understands the modern customer and how to give them a amazing experience.
We just purchased alarm system and camera surveillance and we love it. The technician was very knowledgeable and we have a large home and separate guest house that he had to connect. We love the door lock and code system to get in front door. It is so easy. I love the camera system and can see what is going on around the grounds and entrances from my phone which is a smart phone and my husbands which is an iPhone. We highly recommend.
Vivint salesperson came to our neighborhood in Queens and noticed I have Slomins Shield. He bugged me and bugged me so I decided to talk to him about replacing my system. He sure made it sound real good, you know free installation, state of the art the most advance system blah, blah, blah. Anyway I went with them and after I had signed the contract I found out they were not going to put NEW anything in! They just used the same sensors and everything else that was already there, which belonged to Slomins. The only thing they put in that belonged to them was the main board.Soon I started having problems. The old sensors needed replaced and I got to pay for that and the service call.... Read More
