PROVO, Utah, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Every November 11, citizens across the U.S. come together to pay tribute to the veterans in their communities and celebrate the brave men and women who served the country. Now Vivint™, the largest home automation services company in North America, celebrates Veterans Day by protecting those who protect their country.


Military families all over North America enjoy the safety and convenience of Vivint security, energy management, and home automation solutions. Aside from protecting their homes with sleek wireless technology, these customers stay connected to their families from anywhere in the world. With remote access, every Vivint system can be controlled via smartphone, laptop, or tablet, giving currently deployed servicemen the ability to view live footage of their homes and their kids even from halfway across the world.

As an active serviceman, Brandon Hodges, from Hahira, Georgia, loves his Vivint cameras and uses them frequently to check in on the family while deployed overseas. And aside from remote access, the Hodges also love the customization of their system to fit their specific needs.

"It's been close to four months that we've had this system," says Hodges, "and we love it! One of our favorite features is accessing our whole system from our iPhones. I want to see what my family is doing from my deployed location? No problem! I watch the video to see what's going on—and all from my computer or iPhone. Thank you Vivint for allowing us to monitor our home from anywhere in the world and (even better) allowing us to make this our system and not just another alarm system."

Aside from providing convenience and connection, a great security system is oftentimes an emotional lifeline for military families who worry while their loved ones are away. Elizabeth Allen from Colorado Springs, Colorado, knew this feeling all too well while her husband was deployed. She spent many sleepless nights trying to handle her anxiety on her own, until Vivint stepped in to help.

Says Allen, "The first night that Vivint was installed in our home was the first night that I fell asleep at a decent hour and slept through the night. I am happy to say that since having our new Vivint system, I've continued to have a complete night of sleep, and I now feel more protected in my own home then I ever did with our old security company."
