Who is Vivint?

In 1999, Todd Pedersen started APX, a company marketing and selling third-party security products and services. For the next twelve years, APX alarm expanded rapidly, became a full-service security company, and expanded from a security company into the home automation market.

In early 2011, APX was officially re-branded as Vivint. By mid-year 2012, Vivint reached a milestone bringing in an astounding $30 million dollars in recurring monthly revenue. In late 2012, the Blackstone Group acquired Vivint for over $2 billion, giving Vivint additional resources and helping them to continue expanding and developing new products and services.

Today Vivint has more than 1,000,000 customers, making them one of the largest smart home technology providers in North America. Combine this rapidly growing market with Vivint’s award-winning service and products and you can see that Vivint is well positioned for continued growth and success.
