The Vivint van you see below is part of an aggressive campaign to maximize their home security market share in Roswell, Carlsbad, Hobbs, Ruidoso, Alamogordo and other cities in south eastern New Mexico.
A Vivint sales rep knocked on our door one Saturday morning and was much too forceful for my tastes. Even when I politely told the young man we were not interested in their home security system, he persisted even telling me our next door neighbor said we would be interested. I mentioned to the aggressive sales agent that we had NOT even met our next door neighbor. This did not phase the blood-thirsty salesman even though I had caught him in an obvious lie. He continued to prevaricate until I shut the door in his face.
I did some research on Vivint, formerly known as APX Alarm Security Solutions Inc, and found that they are eager to get you in a long-term contract and will not let you out even if you move out of your home or are foreclosed upon!
They have been known to prey upon the elderly or those who are not mentally adept enough to read all the fine print and special conditions in their hard to read contract. They are pros at getting people to lock in on a long term contract and then not letting them out even if the service is not working properly.
