Vivint Smart Home and Vivint Solar announced a new partnership at CES 2017, with the aim of that strategic partnership being a system that fully integrates home solar use into preexisting smart home systems.

While solar energy is slowly gaining popularity as an infrastructural energy source in private residences, the immense amount of both technical knowledge and time spent in operating solar panels has kept it from truly breaking through into the mainstream. Vivint Smart Home already has a smooth user interface in place for consumers to manage their various smart home devices, including things like thermostats and home security systems. By adding solar energy management into that suite, the companies hope to increase the likelihood of consumers opting for green energy in their homes.
