I've had Vivint for a year and every time my alarm gets triggered they respond within seconds. I trust them so much more than ADT with their insanely inconsistent response times, and HORRIBLE customer service. This site is a little misleading because Vivint is the actual leader in the industry - after doing research I know that Vivint has the awards from the Consumer's Digest Best Buy award, Security Dealer Magazine award for best equipment, best warranty, and the People's Choice best customer service award.... FrontPoint, ADT, and SimpliSafe don't have any of those awards so why are they rated higher here?
