How much does Vivint cost?
Contract & Price - 6.5 / 10
Vivint’s Smart Home plans begin with a monthly monitoring fee of $39.99, while their Smart Home Video starts at $49.99. Vivint is one of the most expensive systems due to their pricing model which adds to your monthly fee with each additional add-on. Vivint’s standard contract is 5 years though they do offer a month-to-month contract. If a customer would like to end their contract with Vivint before the term is over, they are required to pay off the remaining contract balance in full.
With Vivint’s base security package, customers receive a touchscreen control panel, smoke detector, door/window sensor, motion detector, and key fob. The key fob can be used to arm or disarm the system without having to enter the home.
Additional equipment is also available, including recessed door sensors, glass break detectors, flood/freeze sensors, carbon monoxide detectors, tilt sensors, small appliance controls, doorbell cameras, smart thermostats, panic pendants, and more.
If you’re looking for a home security company that offers several automation features and remote system control, Vivint is a good option to consider. However, keep in mind that the monthly rates are higher than many of its competitors.
