What does Vivint mean?

We chose the name “Vivint” because it combines the words “vive,” meaning to live, and “intelligent.” In all aspects, it represents the concept of living intelligently. That is our mission and goal—to help families build a simple, affordable home management system, where all devices work together intelligently to enhance safety and convenience and increase energy efficiency.


Orange is confident, straightforward, energetic, friendly, and fresh. We chose a color that would stand out in a crowd, yet be inviting at the same time.

Growth and Innovation.

Since our earliest days, we have recognized the need to continue to evolve to ensure future success. The name change from APX to Vivint is the latest example of that evolution. In 2009, we introduced the Go!Control panel with the idea of building a platform where we could launch additional services. Today, there are over 170,000 customers with this platform and more that 15,000 that are using our Energy Management package. In February of 2011, we introduced additional products that include automatic door locks, video surveillance, and lighting and small appliance controls. With the introduction of these new products and services, we have transitioned from a residential security company to a provider of simple, affordable home automation solutions. The name Vivint is a direct reflection on our company’s future direction—we are dedicated to helping our customers “live intelligently.”
