LOS ANGELES & PROVO, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vivint,
a leading provider of smart home technology, today announced a
partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to commemorate
the 25th anniversary of Home Alone.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of the greatest
holiday family films ever, Vivint has launched a Home Alone
sweepstakes. Fans of the film can enter at www.vivint.com/homealone
for a chance to win the following prizes:
- A professionally installed and monitored Vivint smart home system

“A smart home would have saved Kevin McAllister and his family a lot of
trouble,” said Jefferson Lyman, chief marketing officer at Vivint.
“While Home Alone will forever remain as one of the great holiday
comedies of our time, home burglaries are unfortunately a real problem,
especially during the holidays. Today’s security and smart home
technology allows homeowners to protect themselves from intruders, as
well as stay connected to their homes while they’re away.”
The Home Alone franchise begins as eight-year-old Kevin
McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has become the man of the house,
overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a
Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the
holidays. But he’s not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two
bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin’s rigging a
bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!
Fast forward to 2015, and today’s technology makes it easy to avoid this
kind of scenario. Vivint security and smart home solutions keep
customers protected and connected to their homes with customized
smartphone alerts and remote access to real-time video feeds. A
triggered flood sensor, an exterior door left open or a broken window
will alert homeowners to take immediate action. Remote management
options from a smartphone, laptop or tablet give homeowners full control
of their home from anywhere.
One of the main advantages of a Vivint security and smart home system is
around-the-clock monitoring and support. The Vivint central monitoring
center responds within seconds to medical, fire, flood, carbon monoxide
and burglary alerts.
The Home Alone: 25th
Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition is available on
Blu-ray and DVD today from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. One
of the highest grossing live action comedies of all time, the film has
