Is Home Security Monitoring Worth It?

It’s nice to have a security dog around the house in times of emergency. But an animal can’t do what a home security system can in terms of protecting your home, family, and the things that matter most.

Home security monitoring and support adds another powerful layer of protection to your home security system. But is it worth it?

Why home security monitoring?

At Vivint Smart Home, we think the benefits are hard to deny—you simply can’t get the same coverage and protection with a self-monitored security system. A monitoring service means someone’s always available to watch over your home regardless of where you are.

I left the stove on and left the house. Vivint notified me that there was a possible fire in the house. The home professionals called me and my husband, emailed me, and notified the fire department. When I got home the fire department was already there and my neighbor had unlocked the door and taken my dog out. Vivint save my house and my dog! I will be forever grateful! I know my family is protected with this system!

That means if you’re not home to hear an alarm, a team of qualified, highly trained home professionals will hear it and respond to ensure your home and family are protected in any situation.

Take a look at what else monitoring and support can offer you and your family:

  • In a crisis, Vivint’s Smart Home Specialists–our highly trained monitoring team–contacts emergency services for you, in many cases before you even have the chance to make the call yourself.
  • If you’re incapable of handling an incident for whatever reason, our monitoring team jumps in to assist. And that includes medical emergencies.
  • Because monitoring and support is continuously provided 24/7/365, our professionals don’t miss a thing and often spot potential problems and emergency situations before you do.
It was a very stressful day and I thought I had turned everything off when I left, but I hadn't. I had left the stove on with food on it. Vivint called me when the smoke alarm went off and called the fire department before the grease on the other burner was reached. Had the department not gotten there when they had, I would have been homeless. I am forever grateful to Vivint for saving my home.

The life-saving value of 24/7 monitoring

But you don’t have to take our word for it. Every day, Vivint customers throughout the country reap the benefits of security systems that include 24/7 monitoring and support services.

We like that a live person calls and stays with you to make sure you're okay, even if it's just a malfunction. It was the middle of the night and our adult daughter was home alone sleeping when the alarm went off. She was terrified. The person on the phone kept her company until the police arrived and checked out the house. Turned out to be a faulty sensor, but she felt safer because she wasn't alone. Now that she has her own home, she has Vivint as her alarm provider. She wouldn't consider another alarm company after her experience.

Their stories are compelling and drive home how essential monitoring and support are in terms of fully protecting your home and family. They are true believers that monitoring and support is absolutely worth it.

The Bennett Family

When their carbon monoxide detector was triggered the first night the Bennett family slept in their home after their Vivint security system was installed, our Smart Home Specialists contacted the family. But the family assumed it was a technical glitch, not a true emergency. After the alarm sounded a second time, our monitoring specialists insisted on contacting the fire department to ensure the home was safe. That call saved the lives of the entire family.

The Garcia Family

You never think your own home will catch fire, but it happened to the Garcia family. The quick alarm notification of their Vivint security system coupled with monitoring truly saved lives. While Mrs. Garcia got her seven children to safety, monitoring and support took care of the rest—contacting the fire department and ensuring help was on its way.

The Campbell Family

Mrs. Campbell was asleep and completely unaware her home had been struck by lightning when a monitoring specialist from Vivint contacted her through the SkyControl Panel, asking if everything was OK in the home. She assured them it was. But the Smart Home Specialist persisted, calling her phone this time and that’s when Mrs. Campbell heard the smoke detector alarm and smelled smoke.

Our front door was recently opened while we were not home. Vivint acted quickly, contacting the police who were there in minutes. Thank you for keeping my family safe!
