One app. Double protection.

We make managing family and home simple. Your vehicle is no exception, which is why we integrated vehicle protection with the Vivint Smart Home App. If your property is threatened—car or home—receive alerts and notifications through the app.

Home security extended.

With Car Guard you get the convenience of protecting your home and vehicle on the same platform. Even better? Configure home security settings to turn on lights or video recording if your vehicle is disturbed while parked at home—further increasing car protection.

Be the first to know.

It’s your vehicle, after all. And with tamper alerts, you always know what’s going on with your car. Receive notification whether your car is being stolen, towed or just bumped so you can take immediate, appropriate action.

Part of the family.

Check in on the safety of your car and family anytime from anywhere with location tracking via an in-app map. It even allows you to create boundaries and get notified when your vehicle crosses them whether it’s been towed, stolen, or your family simply took a detour.

Keep your car and the people in it safe.

Here’s safety: Built-in car diagnostics lets you monitor your car’s performance and status and reminds you when it’s time for regular maintenance. You’ll even get notified about more serious potential mechanical problems, keeping your car healthy and your family safe.
