PROVO, Utah – Vivint Smart Home Inc. has been riding high after a boost to its stock performance in the past month following the announcement of its acquisition by NRG Energy Inc. Now it adds another feather in its cap thanks to IoT Breakthrough.

Vivint has been named the “Home Security Company of the Year” in the Seventh Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program. IoT Breakthrough is an organization that recognizes top technologies, companies, and products related to the Internet of Things (IoT) market.  According to the organization, their mission is to recognize individuals as innovators, leaders, and visionaries around the world in several IoT categories (Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, etc.) This year’s awards attracted more than 4000 nominations in total.

“Homeowners and their families are looking for smart home products that will protect their most valuable space – their home,” said James Johnson, Managing Director at IoT Breakthrough. “Vivint is redefining the smart home category with breakthrough products that deliver on this need, while also making their system easy to use. Their smart home IoT devices are unique as they not only notify people when an emergency occurs, they take additional steps to protect and prevent further damage. In addition, their products connect on a simple platform that you can control from the Vivint app or the Vivint Hub. Congratulations to the entire Vivint team on being our choice for ‘Home Security Company of the Year!’”

“We’re thrilled to be recognized once again by IoT Breakthrough for our work in re-imagining what a smart home should be,” said David Bywater, CEO at Vivint. “We believe a truly smart home should not only notify people of security issues, but actively protect them by preventing security events from happening. We’re excited to continue setting new standards for the industry and driving new innovations focused on bringing peace of mind to our customers.”

Vivint also received recognition in 2020 for its Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro offering, winning the “Connected Home Security Product of the Year” award.
