Vivint Smart Home review

Vivint Smart Home starter kit

Smart home security systems are an ever-increasing market, and you have a lot to consider before declaring allegiance. Vivint’s Smart Home is a good option for a monitored smart home with no long-term contracts. The $550 starter kit price tag isn’t outrageous, but be prepared to pay at least $40 monthly for security monitoring, app control and other features that are pretty much mandatory for your system to have any smarts. Compatibility with Amazon’s AlexaGoogle Home and Nest thermostats makes Vivint’s platform a solid choice, as long as you know what you’re getting into.


Vivint’s starter kit includes a touchscreen SkyControl panel and choice of six smart sensors. Take your pick of door/window sensors, motion detector, glass break detector, flood/freeze sensors, smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector.
