Vivint has horrible customer service. They missed my appointment to install the system. They apologized like it didn't matter. The customer service manager was terrible sounded like a young kid who could careless about Vivint or customers. Pretty amazing. They seem to be too big as they are forgetting they have jobs because of their customers.
