Vivint Streety Video Strengthens Door Knocking

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jan 17, 2018

Vivint is famous (or infamous depending on your perspective) for mastering large scale door to door selling.

The company has skyrocketed from a regional alarm installer to an international service provider on the back of such selling.

Now, Vivint is introducing 'Streety'. While the concept of sharing video amongst neighbors is not new, its combination with Vivint's sales machine could further strength Vivint's geographical strongholds. In this note, we examine how Streety works, how it compliments Vivint's existing business and the competitive impact on rivals including ADT and independent alarm installers.
