Vivint Smart Home Delivers on the Promise of Artificial Intelligence for the Home

Vivint introduces Sky, the smart home assistant that manages all of
the devices in a connected home

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today at CES 2017, Vivint Smart Home, the leading smart home services
provider in North America, introduced a comprehensive intelligent home
with Sky, the first true smart home assistant. Leveraging artificial
intelligence, Sky can automatically manage the connected devices in your
home, including your locks, lights, thermostat and security system.


“Consumers want more than an intelligent device – they want an
intelligent home,” said Matt Eyring, chief strategy and innovation
officer at Vivint Smart Home. “The real magic comes when multiple
devices work together throughout the home in an intelligent way,
creating a single, cohesive experience.”

Sky takes full advantage of the greater number of sensors and devices
that are part of every Vivint smart home system, an average of 14 per
home. Sky’s machine learning algorithms use data from these sensors, as
well as from mobile devices and system usage, to provide intelligent
recommendations and take action to streamline the home experience.

The benefits of an intelligent home with Sky include:

  • Worry-free security With Sky, you can leave your home
    without worrying if you’ve locked your doors or armed your security
    system. Sky uses the data from your sensors and devices to understand
    whether your home is occupied or vacant. For example, if no one is
    home, Sky reaches out and asks if you want to lock the doors, close
    the garage or arm your system. Sky can also automatically do these
    things and let you know they’re done.
  • Intelligent energy management Using its advanced
    occupancy detection and prediction engine, Sky automatically adjusts
    the temperature to be comfortable when you are home and to conserve
    energy when you are gone. Intelligent energy management can help save
    10 to 15 percent on your monthly heating and cooling costs.
  • Sky adapts to your routine – Sky can take a wide range of
    actions based on an understanding of your daily routines such as
    waking up, leaving, returning and going to bed. For example, Sky can
    predict when you go to bed and automatically manage temperature and
    security settings. Sky learns not only your routines, but also your
    preferences, based on your interactions with it. As a result, Sky can
    automatically transition from making a suggestion to just taking an
    action once it has enough confidence in your preferences.

Sky communicates with you via the Vivint Smart Home app and the Vivint
SkyControl panel in your home. Sky also takes voice commands through
Amazon’s Alexa. You control how Sky works for your home, including if
and when to send notifications, ask permission or automatically take
action.
