When it comes to protecting your loved ones the investment of a top rated home security system is invaluable. With so many systems to choose from how do you find one that is not only affordable but has all the functionality and features you need to feel safe and secure. You may be considering Vivint vs AT&T. Let us help you weigh your options by outlining some key differences between Vivint vs AT&T.

Smart Security begins at $40 per month plus $250 for equipment and installation.
•The additional automation costs can add up: $5 per month for appliance controls, $5 per month for door controls, $10 per month for water controls and $10 per month for cameras. On top of that, installation can range from about $150 to $200.
• The basic version starts at $40 a month, with a $250 installation fee, and includes your choice of three additional features including a motion sensor, carbon monoxide sensor, glass break sensor, smoke sensor or a takeover kit.
• Installation can cost up to $650
• IP based alarm system
• Cell Phone Company Monitoring/Protecting your home & family
• LCD touchscreen display control panel—includes weather reports
and outside temperature readout
• Two-way cellular voice on the control panel—eliminates the need for
a hard line phone, and the worry an intruder will cut your phone line outside
• Emergency button on control panel and optional medical pendant
(Did you know that 85% of events requiring 911 or other assistance are
non-burglary related?) The Vivint panel, with two-way voice, allows
you to contact assistance immediately for ANY type of emergency
without having to locate your phone to dial 911 and then wait for your call
to be answered.
• Free Smartphone access—monitor your home and manage your Vivint security
system from anywhere. Arm your system remotely. Receive text or email alerts if your
system is tripped; you will even be notified as to what happened to set off the alarm.
• Wireless sensors—no drilling and ugly wires
• No-charge service calls
If you have a problem, it will be taken care of free of charge, for as long as you own your
system.They will even replace batteries if needed.
• Price lock—your monthly cost will NEVER go up!
While AT&T is certainly a solid phone company, if you truly compare the value, we believe Vivint wins every time. A $39.99 security system is worthless if it does not supply the features you need to be protected. Add the additional Energy Management and Automation, and you will find no one else can offer so much at affordable prices. And as a JD Powers Customer Service Award winner for the last two years and Consumer Best Buy 2011 recipient, it’s easy to see why Vivint is the winning investment for you.
