    So I’m wondering which company you guys prefer based on home automation capabilities (I saw that ADT tanked as far as home security/ DIY ratings are concerned, which I can appreciate after having to deal with one of their lousy used car salespitchmen). However, we have a local ADT dealer that actually isn’t half bad. My only concern is that they haven’t quite caught up with the home automation bandwagon.

    I would love to:

    • Be able to control my lights by setting schedules when I’m gone based on dynamic variables (sunrise, sunset, etc.) so the time they turn on and off changes naturally.
    • Be able to control my door locks
    • Home automation for my thermostat

    That’s the 3 main things I’m looking for in home automation. If ADT or Vivint offers one of these far better than the other, I’d consider making the switch to Vivint.

    Vivint offers all 3 things you're looking for in home automation (lights, door locks, and thermostat). They are pretty much the leader in the home automation category at the moment. Their prices also reflect this as they are somewhat pricey.

    Home automation is a growing field that we expect other players to enter more into soon.

    Definitely have to go with Vivint. Their home security beats ADT hands down. To get through to them quicker I always dial their direct customer service line: 855-300-1751.
