Vivint Smart Home product lineup (1)

Of the countless product  announcements that filled the Consumer Electronics Show it was easy to miss many things. One announcement came from Vivint, which produces home security and automation products. The company unveiled that it planned to work with Amazon Echo to allow customers to control its products by voice.

It hasn't taken long as the integration becomes available now. Products include smart door locks, an automated thermostat, cameras, smoke detectors, a tocuhscreen control panel and a doorbell camera. You'll need to get an estimate on installation, but that part is free when they put the system in. It also has 24/7 monitoring, just as any alarm system should have.

Amazon's Echo, or Alexa as it's more commonly called, is now announcing that "Echo now works with the Vivint Home Security System and the new third-party Vivint Smart Home Alexa skill, allowing you to control a wide range of devices in your home".
