Vivint Gives Back and The Autism Dad helps protect special needs families
I’ve been so excited to share this with my readers and the Autism community at large. The time has finally arrived to break my silence and explain about this project I’ve been working on for the past few weeks.
Before we get started, please read the following disclaimer:
Rob Gorski and The Autism Dad blog are an official Brand Ambassador for Vivint Gives Back. I was provided with equipment for review purposes and so that I can answer any questions anyone may have about how the products function. I DO NOT receive the monthly service for free. I pay what my financial situation qualifies me for, just like anyone else who seeks to take advantage of this program. This is import to me because as a leader in the Autism community, I will not endorse something that I don’t believe in and what better way to show that I believe in something like this, than to pay for the service, like anyone else. This IS NOT a paid endorsement.
I was approached a couple of months ago by a company named Vivint. I’ll admit that I’d never heard of them and frankly, I get hundreds of solicitations a week. After a few more emails back and forth, we finally connected and I learned exactly what it is that they were doing.
Vivint Gives Back is a program where Vivint provides in home security to special needs families at a significantly reduced rate.
Monthly service fees are based on a sliding scale and range between $15 – $44 per month, depending on families income and the equipment package is no cost. Below is a list of the items you get to choose from. You can always purchase more at a discounted rate.
Garage Door sensor (compatibility depends on your current garage system)
Extra Package equipment:
Doorbell camera – $160 upfront cost for customers
What makes Vivint different is that they build these systems around keeping people in the house, like wandering kids with Autism. Of course, the system alerts you and the police to intruders as well but the idea is to provide parents with peace of mind by helping them monitor their child’s whereabouts while in the house.
