Canada outpacing U.S. in smart home technology adoption

New Canadian customers are adopting smart home
technologies at a higher rate than new customers in the United States,
according to Vivint.

As of July 2011, 54 percent of new Canadian customers
added smart home features like remote door locks, video surveillance, energy
management, and lighting and small appliance control to their basic security
packages compared to 48 percent in the United States.

Smart home features are easier to use and more affordable
than ever with full packages running about the same price as a cell phone plan.
New technologies, professional installation services, and innovative financing
plans have made the safety, convenience, and energy management benefits of home
automation accessible for a wide variety of consumers.

Alberta led the country with 66 percent of new customers
adding smart home features. The lowest adopting province is New Brunswick at 33
percent – which is still higher than 18 U.S. states and territories.

Vivint is dedicated to enhancing security,
increasing energy efficiency, and creating simple, affordable home automation
solutions for its customers.
