Vivint Smart Home wins 2020 IoT Breakthrough Award for outdoor camera


Vivint Smart Home, a leading smart home company in North America, today announced that IoT Breakthrough named the Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro its “Connected Home Security Product of the Year” for 2020. The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro is an AI-powered security camera that intelligently detects and deters lurkers around your home.

“The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro goes beyond just awareness by introducing a new layer of protection that actually helps prevent crime,” said Jeremy Warren, chief technology officer at Vivint Smart Home. “This IoT Breakthrough recognition showcases our commitment to innovation that helps homeowners protect what matters most.”

With the Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro, you choose the area of your property you want to protect by defining a surveillance zone. The camera is designed to intelligently detect people within this zone, not pets or passing cars. The camera’s Smart Sentry feature determines if someone is a lurker based on how long they remain on your property. The camera will then automatically deter any lurkers with a red light and a warning tone.

“Vivint has established itself as a strong leader and innovator in the smart home space,” said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro showcases the positive evolution of innovation through both AI and IoT to protect what is most valuable to us. We congratulate the company on its well-deserved IoT Breakthrough Award.” The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro is available as part of an integrated Vivint smart home system, which also includes a Vivint Smart Hub and smart locks, lights, thermostats, doorbell and indoor cameras, garage door control, security sensors, car protection and more.
