Best Buy and Vivint Team Up

Recommended Posts


Hello Team,


Hope this is the right forum...


I have been a big fan of the HomeServer Show Pod Casts and getting up to speed with the Reset Pods Casts.


Currently, I run Circle by Disney at home with 5 Kids, wife and my dog....and me too...so far I love it...kids hate it...wife somewhat likes it...my dog can't seem to make up her mind...


Added to the mix is the SmartThings starter kit and we are learning how to best use it around the house....my boys seem to like to play around with it like its a Lego Challenge getting it to work..


anyhow, I was recently at Best Buy and their team of home automation geeks seem to guide me to their inhouse security called Vivint...see below




Anyone know about what this is about? I feel it's a bunch of services put together in a packet and charging a monthly fee....


their Geeks feel my SmartThings and Circle is not to par with their security services...they want me to leave my house to the "pros"....and sign up to a free consultation....


My background is in IT and run my own mini-data center at home...but I am a newbie at home automation..   


Anyone has experience with Vivint and Best Buy teaming up?

      I want to thank you guys for Episode 77 --
      After listening to your Episode yesterday I had to log into my Router (a DLink 4500) and uncheck the WPS box. After rebooting and testing I made sure the thing was off.
      I really appreciate you making us all aware of that issue!!

      This week we talk Home Automation with special guest Ted Singh, co-founder and business development manager for Embedded Automation about his mControl product. We did have a few Skype issues but we hope you enjoy this interview. We want to thank Ted for his time and for sharing his wealth of information on the subject.
