As you search for the best monitored home security company for your needs, it's important to know what unique features and services each company offers. For example, Vivint goes above and beyond when it comes to helping you and your family stay safe.

Severe Weather Alerts give you timely information about tornados in your area, so you can take necessary precautions to protect your family immediately. According to the National Severe Storms Laboratory, an average of 1,200 tornadoes occur annually in the U.S. The information is provided by the National Weather Service, so you can trust it's accurate. The alerts integrate with the Vivint SkyControl touchscreen panel so you always have fast access to the most up to date weather-related information.
If the National Weather Service issues a tornado alert, the SkyControl touchscreen panel will beep loudly three times and a detailed warning message will appear on the panel's screen. A series of three beeps will continue until the homeowner dismisses the warning or the alert is cancel by the National Weather Service. The Severe Weather Alerts service is available in nearly two dozen states and is included as part of every Vivint monitored home security package at no additional charge.
Even if the TV goes out, you can count on Vivint's Severe Weather Alerts to provide you with the important information you need about natural disasters.
