Internet alarm monitoring specialists IP Alarms have recently added a discussion forum to their web site for the DIY alarm community. It aims to make the question and answer process involved in setting up an account much easier and quicker. As there is a lot of repeating of questions and answers, it will serve as a good reference and avoid duplication.
One interesting thing to note is that there is a section for posting Vivint Reviews. There is always a lot of controversy surrounding Vivint and other door knocking alarm companies and this gives consumers an unbiased place to air their opinions, make a complaint or post a review.
Vivint get more press and are under the spotlight a lot more than other alarm companies purely because of their market penetration. They are probably the most active company in the USA and Canada and the law of averages says that a company of their size will receive more complaints than most other smaller companies. This should be taken into consideration when reviewing the information posted by Vivint customers, ex-customers or anyone else that has had experience with Apx or Vivint.
Update: We have had to trash some Vivint Reviews. Simply posting things like “BEWARE THESE GUYS ARE A SCAM VIVINT SUCKS HORRIBLE SERVICE HORRIBLE ALARM SET UP” is no use to anyone. Constructive criticism only please.
