Vivint Smart Home on Designing Spaces on Lifetime TV Aharon, a single dad, has just moved into his new house with his daughter Eliza AHARON: I live here with my daughter Eliza

She's six She loves when I paint her nails and we like to ride our bikes together We like to play in the playroom ELIZA: I live here with my daddy, and this is our dog He's not a real good security dog because he's really small and I don't think anybody would be scared of him

I'm out of the house at probably 8:00 in the morning, and I don't get home until 6-7:00 With Aharon at work all day, security is paramount We do have a babysitter friend that watches Eliza In the morning, we're always rushing to get dressed, get her lunch ready and there's been times that I've either left the door unlocked or I've left the garage door open and I come home and the garage door's open A lot of my neighbors have security systems and I've noticed Vivint signs around the neighborhood in their yards

Today I'm having a Vivint Smart Home rep come to the house to just give me a consult and to see if this is something that I want to do and put in my house [Doorbell rings] Hey, I'm Rick with Vivint Smart Home You must be Eliza Nice to meet you Come on in

Thank you RICK:We came by Aharon's house to do an in-home consultation and customize a smart home system After consulting with Aharon, Rick knew exactly how to accomplish what was needed So let's walk through the house real quick and see what the layout is and everything I think a great spot for the indoor Vivint Ping Camera would be over here on the counter

So one thing we would do is replace this thermostat with the smart thermostat What that will allow you to do is control the temperature from anywhere on your phone and it will automatically adjust whenever you leave the house for you These things are saving people up to 12% of their bill Put a camera up here It's the Ping camera

You plug it in and you'll be able to see everything that's going on in the room here The great thing about that, something that Vivint does that nobody else is doing, is it allows Eliza to actually hit the button on the top It's a one-touch callout so she can call you on your phone ELIZA: Daddy, come home AHARON: I'm working late, but I'll be home soon, OK? I love you

RICK: So you can be very integrated into her life, even though you're out busy at work AHARON: Great, she's gonna be calling me every two seconds! Love it! ELIZA: Daddy's not gonna miss out on any princess days RICK:So this is where I would recommend we put our smart hub It's what makes it all possible for everything to work together into one seamless system The touchscreen display: you'll be able to control your lights, your door lock, thermostat— basically everything that's in a home

The great thing with Vivint Smart Home is we're with you every step of the way We provide you with the white glove installation and service through the whole process You won't have to lift a finger And even afterwards we'll have our award-winning customer support there for you if you ever need anything AHARON: Sounds great

Let's do it RICK: All right, Aharon I'm excited to go over this with you This is your smart hub It controls everything in the home for you I'm going to walk you through it

If you notice on your app that you downloaded (Vivint Smart Home app), the interface is very similar You're going to be able to control it pretty much the same way Your thermostat is here Your cameras you can access from here And your security and everything: doors, front door, back door Security + home automation = smart home

Now, whether Aharon is home or away he can lock his door with the touch of a button from his panel or smartphone RICK: You can have it automatically change the temperature when you're gone so it saves you money What's great about this system is when the alarm is activated for an emergency we can talk to you directly through that panel and that gives us the ability to instantly verify what's happening and we can get the police out much quicker So to tie this all together, we are outfitting the home with Google Home where you can actually voice control the whole system So you can, by your voice, tell Google to lock a door, change the temperature, turn the lights off, close your garage, arm your security system—the whole nine yards

So now that we have everything set up here, let's show you how to use the Google Home Hey, Google Lock the front door GOOGLE ASSISTANT: OK, locking the front door Congratulations, Aharon! It's been a pleasure meeting you and your family

So if you need anything at all, you have our customer support number And we're with you every step of the way [Doorbell Rings] ELIZA: It's my babysitter! AHARON: OK, you can get the door BABYSITTER: Hi, Eliza Are you ready to play? AHARON: Hi, guys

All right, I'm leaving Give me a kiss Have fun See you later To find out how to make home a smart home, visit vivint
