Vivint Review: Pricing and Plans
When you order any system from Vivint, you can buy whatever hardware you require, such as the window & door sensors, thermostats, cameras, and motion sensors. The Vivint Starter Kit arrives with a Smart Hub, a motion sensor, a couple of window & door sensors, and a water sensor. Users also get a credit of more than ninety dollars towards more components. The service plan of the system is about fifty dollars per month and gives the user round-the-clock pro monitoring and unlimited usage of the mobile app, including the alert notifications. It also allows the user to control smart home devices such as thermostats, video doorbells, and door locks. It gives support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa voice commands also.
Other advantages of the service plan are two weeks of recorded video storage for clips which are a minute-and-a-half in length, a month of persistent storage with the purchase of the Vivint Smart Drive, in-home technician services, an expanded equipment warranty, and round-the-clock telephone and online technical support. A service plan from the company is not compulsory. Still, without it, you will have to monitor the home security system yourself and let go of the mobile app's usage, remote access to the system, and round-the-clock tech support. The company now gives a DIY kit that you can use to install the system yourself. For $300, you get a hub panel, a motion sensor, a couple of window & door sensors, and a tabletop stand for the whole panel. For more than $400, you also get an indoor camera or a doorbell camera, and for more than $550, you get both cameras. The company does not give the Outdoor Camera Pro a portion of the DIY package because it needs pro installation.
