Preparing for a crazy Summer in our not-so-safe neighborhood with @VivintGivesBack

Sometimes I share my experience with Vivint Gives Back in regards to helping prevent wandering.

There’s also another side to our Vivint Smart Home System, provided to my family, and that’s security.

We live in a neighborhood that has on countless occasions, proved itself to be very unsafe. We’ve been involved in drive by shootings, people have been stabbed in front of our house and we hear gunshots almost every single day. Our car was just recently broken into again as well.

It gets scary, especially for the kids.

As summer approaches, we are working on some commonsense safety measures (that I’m not getting any into in this particular post) but aside from commonsense, we rely heavily on our Vivint Smart Home System to help keep us safe.

We have cameras on the outside of our house, including a doorbell camera that notifies us the moment someone approaches our front porch.

All of our cameras record 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The cops will stop by on occasion and request footage of crimes that may have been recorded. It’s nice to be able to help keep our neighborhood a bit safer.

In addition to cameras, all of our windows and doors are monitored as well. We also have glass break sensors, motion detectors and CO2/Smoke detectors that help to keep us safer.

Everything is professionally monitored by Vivint Smart Home.

I wanted to point this out because I know that some Autism parents not only have to worry about wandering but also safety because of where they live.

It’s too bad you can’t live somewhere safer. I am aware that where you are living is cheaper though.


Get a few dogs…I have some and they really help…bark at the dealers strolling by….so much that many of them go around my house lol…oh and my cameras help too!!! The opioid problem is alive and well.


It’s too bad one of your cameras didn’t catch the creeps breaking into your car!!
