Your good, old-fashioned smoke detector: definitely your most basic form of home security. And Vivint offers a really great one. Read on for some frequently asked questions about the Vivint smoke alarm to see if you might want to add one to your home . . .

How is the Vivint smoke alarm different from other smoke alarms?

First of all, this security product is fully integrated with your Vivint security system. That means that it’s supported and monitored 24x7x365 by our award-winning central monitoring station, so if a fire is detected in your home, emergency personnel will be there to help you within minutes. Our smoke alarm is also designed to detect dramatic increases in heat as well as smoke. While other detectors are only tripped by smoky fire hazards, our detector will also protect you and your home from wall fires that don’t produce smoke at all.

How does it detect wall fires?

Our smoke alarm contains a photoelectric detector that is triggered by sudden increases in heat. Even if a fire doesn’t produce smoke at all, this detector will sound the alarm and warn you of danger.

Which package does the smoke alarm come in?

Customers usually add our smoke detector to the Home Security package as a security point, but this product can be added to any package as an a la carte option.

How much does it cost?

If you use security points, your smoke detector is free. Added to another package, the detector runs at retail value for $120.
