What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Expensive monthly monitoring: Vivint is not a cheap system. You could end up paying as much as $39.99 per month for professional monitoring, and that’s not including cameras, extra video storage, and other add-ons.
  • Moving fee: If you move, you’ll have to pay $129 to get your system re-installed.
  • Proprietary equipment: Vivint uses its own equipment, and that means other alarm companies can’t take over monitoring. If you stop paying Vivint for monitoring, the system becomes unusable.

Bottom Line

Vivint is one of the strongest smart home security systems. From its smart touchscreen control panel called the Vivint Smart Hub to its AI-powered security cameras, Vivint delivers a unique smart home security experience that no other security system on the market can match.
