Smart Home Integration

You don’t even need your phone or Vivint control panel in hand to control your system once Amazon Echo is integrated. Set up voice commands for your smart locks, security cameras, smart thermostat, and more.

Far-Field Voice Recognition

An array of seven microphones uses beamforming technology and enhanced noise cancellation to hear you from any direction. That means Alexa will hear you even if you’re playing music at a loud volume, making hands-free commands easy even in noisy environments.

Audio Quality & Bluetooth Streaming

Stream from Bluetooth-enabled devices and voice-control your musical selection. Switch from quiet background music to a loud dance party with a simple command, all while experiencing booming bass and crystal-clear mid-ranges.

Professional Installation
