Vivint Launches Smart Home Platform: 'We Consider Apple A Direct Competitor'

by Wochit 0:41 mins

While many smart home companies are likely gearing up to work with Apple's newly announced Home platform, others companies like Vivint want to revolutionize the home automation industry all on their own. The Utah-based company launched a smart hub called Vivint Sky on Tuesday, which will let users control everything from the lights, thermostat and door locks to high-definition security cameras throughout the home — all from a smartphone, laptop or tablet. The catch, of course, is that you'll need Vivint-branded lights and thermostats for the hub to work.
