Vivint Home Security review
So far I have loved the system. I have the doorbell camera, door and window sensors/glass breaks, fire alarm alert sensor, etc. I did have to call customer service (technical support) and honestly, outside of technical support, I like the system. The price is about what everyone else is charging so nothing exciting there. Installation was free. Equipment on payment plan. No contract. The customer service/technical support needs work. The guy who did the installation was great...fantastic. He came back out to install a couple of other items that I felt that I needed...great person to person service. I have no complaint. Their technical support needs A LOT OF WORK!!!! I'm not long winded but beware...if you need technical support, 4 out of 5 times you are going to connect to someone who doesn't know what the heck they're doing and should probably be working in the mail room not technical support. All that to say, I have to have another tech come out because of the four out of five that did not know what they were doing. One of them disconnected my system from the company's router and connected it to my router, so now I cannot view my front door like I have been able too. Everything else is working as it should. All said, It's really up to your needs. I like the service. I like being able to answer my doorbell while I'm at work. I like the fact that they run on wireless and cellular (the main panel works on a cellular network) so if someone cuts my wifi connection and tries to break in...BAM busted lol. Be critical when dealing with the top 5. Chances are they are practically equal in services, prices and equipment.
