Vivint History

Vivint customer service logo

Vivint was founded in 1999 in Provo, Utah, by current co-owners and CEO Todd Pederson and Keith Nellson. Originally named APX Alarm Security Solutions, the company sold and installed alarm systems for homes and businesses. In 2006, the company began to expand substantially when it began monitoring services.

Today, Vivint is a smart home service provider. The company was acquired by The Blackstone Group in 2012 for $2 billion. In late 2016, Vivint claimed to have more than 1 million clients in the US and Canada. The company is perhaps best known for the Vivint Doorbell Camera, which allows clients to see and respond to anyone who rings the doorbell at their home or office, giving the impression that they are in the building.

In July 2018, Best Buy stated that they were reconsidering their partnership with Vivint, which began in May 2017. This partnership allowed a few Vivint employees to work from Best Buy locations to help solve problems customers might have with products, as well as answer questions.

Vivint has received numerous awards, including Best Buy from Consumer Reports in 2016, Best Product of the Year by PC Magazine in 2015, and two Gold Stevie awards, along with two Silver Stevie awards, the latest in 2016 for Outstanding Customer Service. Vivint frequently receives customer service awards and generally has positive customer reviews.

Recently, I had a problem with the doorbell camera. I contacted the Vivint support tech on the phone on 30 Sept 2018.
After approx. 1 hour or trouble shooting, the support tech could not resolve the problem. Had the same problem a month or two ago, and the other support tech solved the problem. However, in this situation the technician decided that a service tech would have to come to my home and resolved the camera issue. He stated, “I guess you want this fixed as soon as possible”. He then indicated that there was an two appointment windows available: (1) 0800 – 12:00pm, or (2) 12:00 – 4:00pm. He said these appointments were for “TOMORROW’, which would be on October 1, 2018. I accepted the 12:00 – 4:00pm time frame window appointment. I asked for HIM to please re-confirm appointment and he reiterated, “TOMORROW”, AND specified, “MONDAY”.
It is now Monday (10-01-18), and past 4:00pm, and the service technician never showed up. I called Vivint and was told that the appointment was scheduled for Thursday, 10-04-18 between 1-4 pm.
I have been waiting all afternoon; FOR NOTHING!!!
It’s bad enough that I would have to pay a $49.00 service charge for equipment that belongs to Vivint, and for a problem that they could not resolve over the phone, as they did in the recent past (for the same issue). As a faithfully paying customer, I consider this to be “Horrible Service” that Vivint is providing. Needless to say, I am not a happy Vivint customer.
Respectfully Submitted,
Miguel Salas Jr.

August 2017 I had the system installed in my home. WORST MISTAKE EVER! From the onset of the installation, the faulty equipment in no way protected my home. Had I known then what I know now I would have allowed the tech to cross my threshold. After two weeks I was informed that I would have to perform continuous downloads of the system to allow it stay connected. Really, I had to do this. This upon so many other issues with the system. In September I requested the system be removed. Of course they wanted to send their techs…who could not repair their own system, too many phone calls to attempt to resolve the issue. After several months, February 2 the system was removed but I was continually billed. How many times have I called to alert them that they were illegally withdrawing money from my account. Each person saying they would get the money too me. In August I was told I was due a refund of $561.99, today (9/24) informed I was due $542.00. Requested to speak with Mr. Pederson but was told he and his office do not deal or speak with the customers. Hey Mr. Pederson, maybe if I contact national news to talk about your illegal dealings and incompetent product and customer service, just maybe you can find someone to explain why your company operates this way. Your company had no problem continuously taking my money, then you should not have a problem addressing this request directly. If reading this message, unless you’re at the VP level, please do not call to resolve. Thank you

WE HAVE HAD VIVNT FOR A FEW MONT NOW. HAD I KNOWN THAT WE WERE BEING LIED TO FROM THE GIT GO ABOUT THIS DEAL WE WOULD HAVE NEVER GONE WITH VIVNT. THE SALES REP OFFERED US EITHER 10$ MONTH FOR JUST THE EQUIPMENT OR 50$ MONTH FOR MONITORING S WELL. I ASKED HIM AT ANY TIME IF WE WANT TO CANCEL THE MONITORING AND JUST TAKE IT DOWN TO 10$ MONTH THEN WE CAN DO THAT. HE REASURED ME THAT WE CAN. FROM DAY 1 WEVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS. THE MOTION DETECTOR SUCKS. YOU HAVE TO WALK IN FRONT OF IT FOR AT LEAST A MIN TO DETECT. MY KIDS SET OFF THE ALARM 2 TIMES IN THE PAST MONTH AND NO ONE EVEN CALLED TO SEE IF WE HAD AN EMERGANCY. BESIDES NO ONE OBVIOSLY MONITORING OUR HUSE I ALSO DECIDED TO CANCEL THE MONITORING AND JUST PAY OUR EQUIPMENT FOR 10$ MONTH. SO FAR EVERYONE INCULDING MANAGERS HAVE BEEN TELLING ME THE ONLY AND I MEAN ONLY WAY TO CANCEL IS TO PAY OFF MY EQUIMENT OR 600$ IN FULL TO CANCEL. THIS IS RIDICULOUS…I TOLD THEM WHAT THE SALES REP OFFERED EXPECTING THEY WOULD HONOR THAT…NOPE!!! THERE IS APPARENTLY NO WAY AROUND IT. THEY SAID IF THEY CONTACT THE REP AND TURNS OUT HE ADMITTS TO PROMISING ME THAT THEN THEY COULD. SO JUST THERE I KNOW THERE IS SOMETHING THEY CAN DO. BUT SURE ENOUGH THEY GUY SAID HE NEVER TOLD US THAT. I AM FURRIOUS!!!!! I SAID I DONT CARE IF YOU MAKE ME PAY A CANCELATION FEE AND PAY 10$ A MONTH TIL MY EQUIPMENT IS PAID. STILL “NOPE NOTHING WE CAN DO.” I AM NOW GOING TO COPORATE HOWEVER I AM HAVING A REALLY HARD TIME FINDING THE NUMBER. IF ANYONE HAD A COPORATE NUMBER, PLEASE SHARE!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND VIVINT TO ANYONE!!! I WOULD GIVE THEM NEGATIV STARS!!!!! AND I AM NOT STOPPING HERE. I KNOW WHAT THE SALES REP SAID AND THIS IS BS HOW THEY ARE TREATING ME AS I STILL AM A VIVINT COSTUMER!!!!!

I got Vivint march of 2016 . I called today to close my contract and was told my contract ends 2021 longer than my car note.I thought i had a three yearcotract i had just jumped out of the fire with ADT into the frying pan with vivint ridiculous. This system has been nothing but a head ache, hours and day on the phone i need to be payed for all they wanted me to do all to no avail. ,Always a temporary fix.the unit is always offline the app has been offline more times than I can count. I installed and uninstalled over and over so long i just act as if it doesnt exist but i am in this contract paying and it doesnt work is aggrivating.I have a disabled family member and this service is useless now the doorknob doesn’t work the apps say the door is unlocked when it is not that the garage is open when it;s not.i was on the phone they had me going from the front door to the panel to the garage door and when you open the doors the panel doesnt recognize those functions they wanted me to climb a latter to test something in the garage that was the last straw when he said you can climb the ladder or i can send a tech and charge you a trip fee I hug up. mr micheal you work for a lie basted company, so deceptive , cunning and prey on the elderly.if there is a class action suit i am in. i want out of this contact and company that doesnt care about their customers , why should they they know they have you in a 5 year contract . . if you don’t have it seek another avenue . they are misleading and dishonest.

WORST company ever. I booked an appt in April for June 25. The canceled THREE minutes before to transfer my service and have ignored me since then. They got me on a contract two years ago and then when I needed to move and have my system transferred, they did not care. I have NO system in my new home but still must stay on my contract. This is a travesty. I have spent hours on the phone with promises they would get a tech out here to no avail. How is this ok? Todd Pedersen says how he would like customers to be treated. Not happening. Awful, horrible and shameful.

Dear Vivint,

Due to all the problems that I have had with the equipment since it was installed from the tech installing the door sensor in a terrible manner to the silent alarms that have been going off for medical alerts, sending medical personnel to the door which at this point could cost me hundreds of dollars if this continues to happened and it has happened at a minimum of 3 times a day in less than a week since I have had the system. I have decided to cancel your service. I contacted the your company 2 days after telling them to cancel and was told to submit the request to vivint in writing.; I have done that everyday I am well within the 3 days to cancel although the Vivint Rep who came to my house told me I had five days; I do not appreciate that lie at all. If I was lied to and did not have issues until after 3 days and wanted it to be removed I would be up the creek. Your tech is a liar and I consider that very deceitful. I want the equipment uninstalled ASAP.

Our complaints are many, however this past month has been the absolute worst of all. After many months of complaints about the equipment and many service calls to our home, we finally had a tech that found the problem – the house is UNSERVICEABLE!!! This is because the walls are too thick (older house) for the wifi to carry the signals. So we were relieved of our contract, and SUPPOSED to be given back our fees. We requested ONLY the tech that discovered the problem to be the one to remove the equipment – THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN EITHER!! Although the tech that came was nice and took pictures of all the damages, (about 10), Vivint now claims that they only have 2 pictures. I still do not have the refund for the services, at first I was told we OWED $623, then I called back and was told that was wrong, it was a credit of $623, and was told 7-10 days for refund – still no refund by 6-4 so I called again – was told the refund was rejected!!!! – I asked to speak with someone else and he stated the request was put in wrong and he corrected it – ANOTHER 7-10 DAYS!!!! I have tried to contact someone in the administrative offices to speak about ALL of the complaints we have had, misinformation we have been given, customer service, 2 even rude and low and behold there is no one at the administrative level to speak to. I would really love to talk to someone with some kind of authority. Last contact was with a customer service rep that stated that Blake Mendenhall was in a meeting and could not speak with me but would call me within 1hr – that was at 3:30pm on 6-4-18 – it is now 4:56pm and no phone call.

Dear Vivint,

Due to all the problems I have had with the equipment and not being able to see the cameras as they continue to go on and off lines. We have decided to cancel your service as we are still within the 3 day period of cancellation.
I was installed last Saturday although the tech was great and very knowledgeable he was unsuccessful. He said my internet connect was at a high speed and perfect strength for the equipment he was installing. To play it safe he asked me to have Comcast to switch out my internet modem to rule out internet problems. I did that on Sunday the day right after the install and we are still having the same issue.

I also called customer service waited on hold for over an hour and finally spoke to a manager. (Victor Carvajal-Lopez) I told him that I am only available on Saturdays because of my work schedule. Also told him that If I didn’t receive an appointment for Saturday 4/28/18 I was going to cancel. I understand you may have new appointments there but I think when you have a new customer that you have not successfully set up that becomes priority. I received a message today giving me an appointment for 5/15. Completely unacceptable but its also a Tuesday. I already spend 10 hours at my house on a Saturday with the tech and I am not taking a day off work for this.

I am sorry to see that my issue keeps getting escalated form what I am told yet no can seem to make the appointment happen for this Saturday.

I would like this equipment removed immediately if we can’t find a way to get me up and running by Saturday.

Thank you
Terry

This Company equipment has worked beautifully for us. But as far as thier billing and customer service it is terrible. It seems to be that I have to call every month about something on my bill, I speak to them get it settled and then the next bill comes it is wrong. I call them back and end up going thru customer service rep. account managers, they say their going to send it to a review and call me back and did not. I call them again and go thru the same run around. I could not in good concisense recommend this company to anyone unless they like having to deal with customer service reps. and account managers that dont keep thier word. I have always paid my bill faithfully every month, even when dealing with issues. Now they wont keep thier word unless I go on contract with them, I had paid my original contract off.my cabel company doesnt need a contract. My electric will work without a contract. same as my phone . They want to raise my bill and not stick to the amount they quoted me. Doesnt any one honor thier word anymore or am I just being Naive?I am looking at another company for my security needs.

I’ve been doing business with Vivint since June of 2015, I haven’t had equipment problems. My issues have been with billing. This is the first time I have had constant difficulty paying these people. My last invoice was received on Feb. 26 and was due on Feb 26. I paid them early without an invoice. Unfortunately, I was told to pay at their Provo address and not their Chicago address. Now I have to pay them again because their corporate address does not speak to their billing address. Also, I agree most of their customer service reps are surly and/or just giving lip service in order to get you off the phone.

Our equipment was installed 10/17. Last week the doorbell failed, then the cameras went out, then the remote activation went, then the wifi and lastly the control panel. I spoke to two support reps who were both very nice but could not help. A service call was scheduled for this Saturday which is not reasonable for new equipment. The reason I was told is because there were a lot of new installations in the area. How classic a mistake is it for Vivint to put new installations in front of existing customers? This translates to losing control of your brand and image at the same time. You are fast approaching the Direct TV area for poor customer service. Todd Pedersen, simply put, you out-kicked your punt coverage…

My wife signed us up for this service in 2011. The service worked wonderfully. She passed away in September of 2014. Vivint would not allow me to make any changes to the account, and if I wanted to continue with them I would have to get my own account. I was not happy with the fact that I had to get a new service contract. But I was happy with the product, so I said OK. They sent a newer technician to my home and I was informed that I had to get a new panel and with it I would have 3 cameras, not one. Ok, for a $1 a month more, sounded like a good plan. Rep spent 8 hours at my home and was unable to get 3rd camera working. I had technician back in my home, and was told the camera was too far away from my panel and that it would never work. So what was I to do? I had signed a contract, and that was that. But it wasn’t. I was deemed to have acted unprofessionally and a restriction was placed on my account. I was never notified of this restrict. Which meant was they would not send a technician to my home, because the they felt the technician would not be safe. Executive resolution was supposed to reach out to me, but never did. In July 2017, my system developed a problem with sensors losing communication with the panel. this dragged on into Dec 2017, with not technician being sent to my home because of this restriction. So as a result, their system required me to by-pass my shot door leaving it unprotected. If found out that I was on restriction and they couldn’t send a tech. I had agreed to extend my contract with the understanding that they get my system working and the restriction being removed. The technician came out, and the system worked for about a week. I continued to call customer support, and was always treated with hostility, it seamed to me that support personnel were always trying to force confrontation so as to keep restriction in place. This went on until they sent me a repeater so that the sensors would be able to talk to the panel. I called back on subsequent occasions stating my belief that it was in the panel. I made these conclusions based upon my having to reboot the system 3 – 4 times per day. Every time I rebooted the system, it would reestablish communication with my shop door and my lights would be green for about 4-5 hours. Yesterday I got this repeated and installed in. The panel seems to be working, no warning messages have happened so far today. In addition, my camera in my rec room started working, although it was in black and white. This morning I called them to let them know what was happening. The first representative was extremely curt with his responses to me, so i asked him if I had had offended him. He asked my why in a sharp tone. I replied that he was quite curt with me. He apologized. Knowing what I knew today and all of the trouble that I have had, I asked him how ling this repeated was available to the consumer. He did not know, put me on hold, came back on the line sand said for several years. When I pressed him on why this wasn’t done before, especially with all my difficulties, he wouldn’t answer, instead put me on hold again. This time his supervisor Alison comes on the line. I explain things to her and she tells me what they sent me wouldn’t have any effect on my camera. She said that I needed a WIFI extended which also has been around for years now as well. I had also informed her that the 3rd camera was displaying in black and white. She was able to resolve that issue and is sending my a WIFI extender. She informed me that I was still on the restricted list and stated that I was put on that list because my conduct was “UNPROFESSIONAL” this gentleman spent 8 hours at my home and was unable to resolve my problems. She then stated that executive resolution should have explained why I was on the list. To which I responded that I had never been contacted by these folks. In summation, if I had it to do all over again, I would have just told this company to just forget it. Their technicians are not equipped to resolve complex matter, nor is their support center. If my conduct was considered unprofessional, their conduct was reprehensible. I spent over $2400 for a system and monitoring that did NOT work as advertised. I wish to have this restriction and a prudent monetary reimbursement for the loss of function of your system.

When I signed up with the door to door salesman in Dec of 2014, in AQ NM. I know he told me the contract was for 36 months. My initial concern was contract time obligation and cost. The term mainly because I knew my job might transfer me. Sure enough it happened in August 2015. When I called and told them my situation they said there was nothing they could do. I could sell the system with my house, pay out the remaining months “which computed to 36 months” or take the system with me. I took the system with me. I didn’t purchase a new home again until 13 months later the whole time I paid a monthly fee. I called to try and solve the problem but again they said they could do nothing. So I had the system reinstalled at my new home. I specifically ask the installer if it would extend my contract he said no. So when 36 months total came I sent my cancellation letter. And initiated a new alarm company “much cheaper, no extend contract”. When Vivint kept withdrawing my monthly charged. I called them and they said I did not have a 36 month contract it was 42 months. So now I have to pay another seven months of service I am not using. That will be almost seventeen months paying for something I did not even use. They have no early out opinions, discounts, etc. People’s situations change, especially in today’s economy. I already paid around seven hundred dollars for no service and now I will have to pay about the same. The customer service person did say I should have called and they would have told me I had more time in my contract. But if I could find the original contract that said they would look at it. She said it said 42 months if her side. Unless they have a copy of the paperwork, how do they know what the salesman put in the computer. Come on it’s been almost three years and I have moved twice since then. Who can a company so large not offer an out option. Especially after 36 months of payment. I will tell everyone I can to avoid this system because of their contact requirements and no out option. D Ramos

Nothing but problems with their system. From the cameras to their panel freezing and having no security at all. Now I have no heat in below freezing temperatures with three children including a baby. When I call customer service they are telling me it’s my HVAC which worked fined before they installed their thermostat. So they are telling me I have to pay an HVAC company to come fix something they broke and in the meantime suffer with no heat. To top it off I have to pay. The thermostat they installed has not worked properly since the day they installed it. They have even had to replace it once before. This company is a joke! I am seriously going to contact My attorney to see if I have options.

My original install was in June 17, 2017. I’m a new customer as well as new to OK. We’re a military family and thought this type of system would be an added touch to our brand new home which was wired already for a regular system. I called in early Nov about not receiving the tablet promised during our installation. I understand with promotions things go on backorder so I was being patient. Was told a manger would be contacting myself or my husband. Channel Department CSR said they did see that my iPad was never sent out. He told me not to worry. It would all be taken care off. He apologized and said we would be contacted and email confirmation would be sent. We never heard from anyone.

6 Dec – called again. Was on hold for 23 mins with the rep checking in letting me know she’s trying to get the right ppl to help us. She’s was transferred 5 times. She did say however better her than me. They do see on our account that a tablet was never mailed out to us. They were on backorder & they apologized for not being contacted before. A manager will be contacting me today & either way I tablet will be sent out today. She even gave me the departments extension if I didn’t hear from anyone and needed to call back.

7 Dec – had to call back. No manager ever contacted me. Advised CSR that I was pissed because I shouldn’t have to keep calling back. What happened to customer service? The rep puts me on hold and clicks back over and says my account is through clear link and doesn’t have a tablet promotion. I told her wrong my account is with Vivint and now they are saying something totally different than I was told the last two times I called. The CSR transferred me to the channel partners department. That rep began to say that I’m not entitled to a tablet per notes added by a manager yesterday. I told her I would be contacting corporate because somebody is lying. Because the last 2 reps from Channel Department clearly states that I was. Or is she calling them
liars or saying they can’t read. I asked for a manager. She claims the manager in charge of the iPad promotion is out-of-office for the next 10 days. I had better customer service witH ADT. Best believe I will warm every military member I come in contact with to NOT choice Vivint!!!!

This has been the work experience with any company or business I have ever encountered. My install date was 9/30, the installer was Nick who refused to install the 4 ping cameras stating that they only do that for businesses and for residence, the home owner would to mount the cameras or pay an additional charge to Vivint. I called the seller, Wardell Jasper, who was not sure but then agreed with Nick but later told us that he would have someone come to the one to take care of it. Matt came to the home the evening of 9/30 around 9pm and mounted the cameras but the next day we noticed the camera upstairs was not working so we called him back and he told us he would be to our home on 10/1 between 6pm-6:30pm but did not call or show so my husband called him and he said he was in San Bernardino doing a job that ran over so he would be there between 9pm-9:30pm. He never called or showed up and we discovered he damaged our wall and curtain rod which we never authorized him to remove. Also, we noticed on 10/5 that not only was the camera upstairs not working but the motion sensor and all upstairs window sensors were not working. When we talked to Vivint, after their trouble shooting failed, they advised we needed a wireless extender because our home was 3700 sqft and the panel was too far from the other sensors. They told us the sensor would be here within 7 business days and to follow the instruction to install. We received the extender but the install instructions failed so they said Ian would be out to the home on 10/24 to install and set up the wireless extender and to ensure the upstairs sensors were working. We also discovered that the code to the doorbell did not work and we had no keys. Nick never gave us the keys and instead we found, after being locked out of my home (we normally enter through the garage but that day my mother was using my garage door opener). I later found the keys in the box that the doorbell and door handle came in which was behind a chair that sits direct next to the front door. Nick never bother to give them to us or to throw away his trash. On 10/23 I got a notification from the panel and on my phone that the power went off in my home therefore the panel was running off of an internal batter which was low (???) That day I was working from home which required me to use the internet and my power never went out. And even if it did, why was the battery at 1% and I had only had it since 9/30. We called Vivint back and I spoke to Lauren and Fancy, who said she was a supervisor, who, after explaining everything all over again agreed to my request to decrease the bill since I was not properly installed and was not getting the service, but she said she was only able to waive the first month. She also assured me that Ian would be to the home on 10/24 between 12p-4p to fix or repair the panel, install the wireless extender, ensure that all both the upstairs and downstairs window sensors, cameras, motion sensors and carbon monoxide detectors were all being monitored and he would ensure that the door camera and code would be working. She told me that he was the supervisor in that department and he would definitely be there. Ian was a no call no show. we called Vivint 2 hours in to the block of time and 2.5 hours into the appointment time and they were not able to reach Ian. Out of frustration, we no longer wanted to speak to anyone and ended the call. By this time it was past 9pm. I ended up getting a text asking me to confirm an install appointment on 11/2 between 12p-4p which I responded to the same or next day. Got the text back confirming my text was received. Then I got a text the next day telling me a sooner appointment opened up on 10/30 and to text to confirm which I did and got a text acknowledging the confirmation. That person was a no call no show again. We called Vivint and was told that the installer that the appointment was scheduled with was not schedule to work that day and it was an error. I was done initially I wanted to cancel but after talking to our Pastor who has the system and it was working pretty good, we decided to keep it and give Vivint another try. I spoke to Colin, who was a supervisor, and she set up an appointment for install on 11/6 between 10a-12p. I advised Colin to assure me that it would not be Nick because he is no longer welcome in our home after our first experience with him and he confirmed it was it a man by the name of Darrell or Darnell. At my concern that Darnell would be a no call no show and request to confirm that he was actually working, he confirmed he was and told me to call Vivint 30min-1 hour before the appointment, ask the rep to transfer me to the Scheduling ETA line and have them give me Darrel’s ETA. I called at 9:30am on 11/6/17, spoke to a man who told me Darrell should be here by 10:30am but there is nothing much they could do at the time because my appointment block wasn’t until 10am. AGAIN, Darrell was a no call no show. My husband called Vivint and was told at 11:40am that he should be at my home but would be a bit late. 12:30pm comes and goes and he still was to at my home and I have not received a call from him. I called Vivint and spoke to Marcus who was unable to help me and told me he had to transfer me. Spoke to Matthew who I had to request to speak to a manager several time before he actually got one and when I did get one, his name was Julien. Julien initially told me that he would have someone come to my home today 11/6 but later told me that the soonest appointment available was 11/7/17 between 12p-8pm. I asked what should I do when they do not show up, he had no resolution stating they would show up. I have never had anxiety but dealing with this has caused me fear, anxiety, frustration, uncertainty and anger among other things. I can’t deal with this anymore and no one at Vivint has resolved this for me. they just keep saying they are “sorry” and they “understand my frustration” when it is clear and apparent that they don’t because if they did, I wouldn’t be going through this.

Wow, I had my first wow today when I talked to “Marga” customer relations. Wanted to inquire about my contract since they told me that it will end in August of this year. I have not used my system for a while (paying monthly installments) knowing that they told me that the contract will finished august this year. So when I moved from Atlanta to a new address they stuck me with a new contract for 5 years. (^(^%(&%###@$%) They are rude and will give us no option. It’s called entrapment. As I talked to “Marga”, she said that they record all conversations with the client. I will investigate, because I was told that my contract was due this August.

You are correct they are dishonest. When we signed up the Sales Rep Sabastian promised that he would pay my first 2 payments plus do the installation for free, well he have me the first payment with cash (oh yeah didn’t show up to my house with it until 11 pm at night and then for the 2nd payment I called and he denied even saying that he would do it. I told him that it was in the contract he said no it was not after arguing with him and told him that he was a dishonest person and that the company was misleading and dishonest he said he would put credit on my account. Well guess what never happened and the payment was taken out of my account the other day. DO NOT GO WITH THIS COMPANY….. THERE SALES REPS ARE DISHONEST AS HELL………

Vivint is a dishonest company. They LIE<LIE<LIE. it is a high pressure sales team . None of their equipment works. NONE OF IT. VIVINT is under consent degrees from several State Attorney General's. The Federal Consumer Affairs should shut them down. I know a very good Class Action Attorney. If anyone wants to file suit let me know.

What is the name of the Class Action Attorney? I have been left hanging by Viviana on a trial system that I refused to keep. My existing security system was working fine before they came to my home. Now I am without protection. I have spoken to so many people and cannot get it resolved.
Thank you

Well, it is time for the people to stand up and do something about the service that is given by this company. I pay for good service, not bulls**t lies!!

My home was damaged and Vivint has refused to fix it after I was tricked into signing some type of form. No one is returning my call or helping me! They will not cancel my contract so I had to stop payments with my bank! Horrible!!!!

I have had Vivid camera and alarm system for right at a year and I have had over 6 technicians to come to my house to try to fix the problem every time they come to my house they are saying okay we can’t find the problem but yet and still they’re taking my money out of my account every month on time no late payments and they tell me when I tried to call today which is June 22nd 2017 that I cannot cancel my contract unless I have somebody else to take over the payment and he refused to cancel my contract they basically told me that I had to keep the defective equipment and keep making payments as I should until five years is up they said that I signed a contract with them for 5 years I asked them to send me a copy of it showing where I sign the contract for 5 years and they sent me a page without my signature on it I have all my paperwork that was given to me and they refused to send me a copy of my contract showing me where I sign showing that I was going to keep this system for five years. The customer service Representatives was very rude and unprofessional how is it that they can allow you not to cancel your contract. The representative also stated to me that the calls are being recorded and I stateed back to her that I was recording her calls to I recorded every call that I’ve had with Vivint.

My Vivint security system recently camera device name has all of sudden chafed without my permission. When I called customer service ( Michael; badge #67680) indicated he was unable to provide me with the date the device name changed. I expressed that my security system has been compromised, the agents replied that there has not been any break in.

When I requested to spoke with a Manager he refused to connect me. Saying that they would only say what he is saying, as his tone began to rise as if he was frustrated with me. Because Vivint has an inferior product due to not being able to trace the actions on my home security system.

Another disatifiyed customer, but Vivint does seem to care because they think they are the only game in town.

I have been a customer of Vivant since 2010 and recently decided to look at other competitive companies. When I called to cancel my service in Nov of 2016 it became a call of used car salesman offering various lower rates and downgrading other alarm companies. They also used scare tactics of the crime rate in my area. The following month I saw my cc being charged for services with a $29 increase. I call once again to cancel and they said it had to be in writing per my contract (which I haven’t seen in over 8 yrs) I had to block Vivint thru my cc company to prevent additional charges. Customers Service has been very rude and always has an excuse on why the cancellation hasn’t been processed correctly. They still insist I owe them $53.99 which is absurd after all the issues, delays and miscommunication I’ve received. I would NEVER recommend Vivint to anyone. They gVe very deceptive billing practices and very poor customer service.

We have been with Vivint 3yrs into a 5 year contract. We were told from the salesman tht we had to do a 5 yr contract. This past summer another Vivant sales man approached us in our driveway asking how we liked Vivint. He also asked how long our contract was. When we told him his comment was “wow you really went all out!” We told him that we were told we had to do a 5 yr contract. He looked embarrassed and said that we were told wrong. In other words, we were lied to by the sales person at the time of signing. We have fallen on hard times now and really do not want or can afford to be in this contract anymore. (I have had heart failure and our roof is falling apart) Our financial situation is not good. (hence why I don’t like long contracts) I am by myself during the week and was scared at night while my husband was working…….I feel like the sales person played on my fears and took advantage. I called the company to explain our situation and that we did not appreciate being lied to. The account manager downgraded our service to bring our payment down around $10.00 and offered a $28.00 credit off of one of the bills. So our camera no longer works or the keypad or phone app. I am angry that we still are paying so much when we were lied to to get our business. The kids that are hired on for sales need to be trained better and told that they are not allowed to lie to the customers. I would like out of my contract completely, but of course was not given that option. I will not return to Vivint when my contract runs out and I will not give Vivint good reviews to my friends and neighbors. I am also considering calling BBB.

This is Latisha Sills my address is **** Devonshire Court phone number 254 251 XXXXX. I would like to make a complaint. Recently at the end of January I spoke to a representative and I told the representative not to go into my account until February 22 2017. On February 1 2017 I notice this same representative I spoke to went into my account. This makes the second time I experienced this. I do not appropriate this representative false classifying information. Now vivint is telling I have to wait until my money is refund back into my account. I feel it is not right I have to wait for my money to be refund and it was vivint representative fault for doing something that not right.

Hello, I been with Vivint for about 6 weeks now, and 3 weeks ago the panel and the door lock are not working properly. The panel black out a lot. I requested a vivint technician 3 weeks ago to come by. I took time out of my very busy schedule to wait on him to come he didn’t show up nor made a courtesy call. so I figure reschedule. so last week Feb 2 on firday I waited .and again no one show up nor made a courtesy call, I was upset because no one made a phone call to inform me that they are not showing up , I called supervision to let him know what is going on he assure me that someone by the name of christian a will show up the next day on a Saturday, and once again I cancel my clients for a later time . well not even Christina show up nor gave me a courtesy call. I been setup 3 time and no one came by to fix the issue. now its sunday no one called me back to fix the issue. Supervisor said he will call me back to fix the issue he too didn’t call me back. Does anyone see the importance in addressing the issue. here my number i need this asap i have a business to run. Thank Diana 713 291 XXXXX

We purchased the Vivint Smart Home System at Best Buy. The alarm system looked great and the Vivint rep explained everything very well. Our package included several cameras, additional smart locks, cloud recording, thermostat, Amazon Echo, etc.; the whole works. The installer came within 2 days and setup the alarm system.

It worked for about a week, and then we started to have problems with it. Cameras go offline frequently, when online, they intermittently don’t record at all and sometimes don’t record motion (in playback mode, there are no tick marks on the timeline to show movement even though you can see the movement on the video), doorbell speaker volume and panel volume are weak, etc. We’ve had techs out several times to fix the issues, which they work to resolve, but then the same issues come back. Had 2 cameras replaced, panel modifications done, smart door lock replaced to name a few. Speaking with tech support on the phone is like talking to a wall. Every tech support rep we spoken with has no clue what to do. They just read a script and insist that is what needs to be done.

Out of frustration, we went back to Best Buy and spoke with a Vivint assistant manager. He used to be an installer and seems electronically minded. He felt it was a defective panel and said to have a new one put in. When the tech came to the house, he refused to put in a new panel, modified something on the old panel and said that should take care of it. It worked for a few hours, and the system went back to doing what is has been doing all along, not working properly.

We are at the point where we are looking at other alarm systems and will remove Vivint. We don’t recommend Vivint. Too many issues and not worth the frustration.

Your system failed. When we called we were told that we did not have an active account. Lies since we have paid faithfully every month. Your tech pulled the equipment since we have no trust or faith in your company. Your support wea extremely rude when we tried to work this out so now I will tell everyone I know about Vivint and their lack of service.

YOUR COMPANY IS FULL IF INCOMPETENCE AND YOUR ENTIRE GOAL IS TO DEFRAUD UNSUSPECTING CONSUMERS OUT OF THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY BY INSTALLING FAULTY/INCOMPATIBLE EQUIPMENT. WILL BE REPORTING TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU FOR THEFT OF SERVICE AND FRAUD. I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCH A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH A COMPANY.
