While do-it-yourself smart home security systems are abundantly available for those with a more frugal bent, the Vivint Sky is one of the only such systems that offers a professional emergency response with its subscription service.

Other home security systems, while smart and capable of monitoring homes effectively, leave any response to the homeowners themselves. With the Vivint Sky system, Vivint's monitoring team will take action in emergencies, checking with homeowners to ensure that everyone is safe should a smoke or carbon monoxide detector go off, for example, and calling local authorities if need be.

Beyond that added sense of security, Vivint Sky's subscription removes the need for extra technological know-how. After ordering the service, a professional technician will come to one's house, install the Vivint Sky system, and give homeowners a tour of the system and the app.
