Here’s how the program works, and this is also the same process I went through as well, before agreeing to work with them.
There’s just a few simple steps to finding out how Vivint Gives Back can help.
- Visit www.vivintgivesback.org
- Fill out the short application
- Someone will be in contact with you
- You find out what you qualify for
- If you decide to move forward, an installation is scheduled
- You choose the equipment that will best fit your needs
- Monthly service charges for monitoring services are based on your personal financial situation
That’s the long and short of it.
Your financial information is used to determine how much you pay per month for monitoring service. This is on a sliding scale and ranges between $14-$44/month. Based on my income, I qualified for $15/month, and continue to pay that to this day.
The equipment itself is absolutely free, thanks to grants from other partner companies. You can always add more equipment if you desire but there may be a charge for extra equipment.
Having paid for this service myself, for the better part of two years, I couldn’t be happier. Not only does it work as described, Vivint Gives Back stands behind the equipment. They are always there to help or answer questions.
Customer feedback is encouraged. They are constantly innovating and finding new ways to help provide a safer home environment for your special needs child, as well as provide parents with peace of mind.
While I work very closely with Vivint Gives Back, there’s no incentive for me to convince families to try them out. I don’t make anything if you decide to sign up.
The reason I do this? I truly believe in this program, and want to help my families to discover or connect with technology that can help them keep their child from wandering, as well as sleep better at night, know they will be alerted if their child gets out of bed.
Like I said earlier, I choose not work with many companies because very few are as honorable and dedicated to the special needs community as Vivint Home and the Vivint Gives Back Foundation.
I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about my experience with them. I can show you my billing statements to prove my monthly rate if need be. You can also read my complete write up on my experience, installation and use of our smart home system by clicking here.
I truly hope you explore this program because it’s absolutely affordable, and it can help you limit your child’s propensity to wander, as well as give you peace of mind.
