Vivint Smart Home, a National Autism Association partner, is kicking off Autism Awareness Month by giving away free smart home systems in April to four families affected by ASD.
The giveaway is open to any North American household with at least one member with ASD. To enter, eligible households simply need to submit a 1-2-minute video explaining their situation and describing why they would benefit from a smart home system. Vivint will accept submissions through April 20, 2018 and will announce the winners at the end of Autism Awareness Month.
Smart home systems can help by alerting you when your children attempt to wander from safety. By monitoring key exit and entry points with smart sensors and cameras, the technology can provide you peace of mind and greater capacity to keep your children in a safe, supervised environment.
Every Vivint smart home system is customized with smart locks, lights, cameras (indoor, outdoor, doorbell), thermostats, garage door control and a variety of sensors and detectors that help you control and monitor the activity in your home. This makes it easy to communicate with those in your home, such as children and caregivers. Their systems are professionally installed and come with 24/7 professional monitoring, customer care and support.
To enter the Vivint smart home giveaway, submit your video at www.vivint.com/smart-home-giveaway.
