PROVO, Utah, Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivint™, the largest home automation services company in North America, is helping customers keep it simple during the back-to-school rush.


Aside from knowing that their home is safe—even while they're doing errands or still at the office—customers can also use Vivint equipment to check in and be there even when they can't. Vivint customer Stacey Thomas from Philadelphia, Missouri, uses her system to watch the kids come home from school and enjoys the security of knowing they've arrived safely.

"I love the peace of mind that I get with my Vivint system," says Thomas. "I love the features it provides and knowing that my kids are safe in the afternoon after school. The camera records the clips of them entering the house and sends them directly to my cell phone."

And paired with Vivint small appliance modules, cameras also give customers the ability to keep their kids on task after school. Parents can check in to see if homework is getting done and even use their smartphones to switch off the game station or the TV to keep the kids on task. Even if parents are still at work, they can know what's going on at home and help their children succeed in school.

Another feature that's great for going back to school is the Vivint automatic door lock. Thanks to individual door codes, customers can now give each of their children a unique code to get inside safely after school without a hide-a-key. And every time a family member uses their code at the door, the customer receives a text message alert telling them exactly who just came home.

"The keyless entry has been wonderful," says Vivint customer Vivian Stone from Hephzibah, Georgia. "My oldest son was always losing his keys, so we had to keep changing our locks. Now with the door codes, the problem is solved and I can check to see when and what time my kids came home from school. The setup is wonderful!"
