Our Expert Opinion

“Vivint provides the least value of any of the home security companies we compare for the money they charge. You only get 3 door and window sensors at a price that’s $13 more per month than our Essential package. Plus, you have to commit to a 4-year agreement with no money back guarantee. If you sign a contract with Vivint and later decide you made a mistake, that mistake is going to cost you over $2,399 (48 months X $49.99 per month).

For the high monthly fee you pay through Vivint, you get all the bells and whistles such as two-way voice and home automation – all the stuff you don’t need to make your home secure. We sell these features, too, but we give you the option to choose them as upgrades instead of forcing it on you.

Vivint’s package is suitable if you live in a luxury high-rise condominium with limited entry points. If you like the best of everything and willing to pay for it, Vivint is for you. For most homeowners with multiple points of entry, we feel our package provides a better value and a lower monthly cost.
