I’m not a “tech type” (I had to have my grandkids set up my Face Book page, just to give you an idea), so I was worried about all the controls for my new Vivint Security system. As it turns out, though, this control panel is really intuitive, even for a technophobe like me. I was so encouraged by that, I went ahead and signed up for the text alerts to my phone. Hey, this is actually simple to use. When one of those grandkids accidentally set off the alarm at my back door, I got a message on my phone as well as a call from the monitoring center. Hopefully that’s the only time I’ll be getting that kind of message, but it’s good to know it works.
