Best Buy and Vivint Smart Home have announced a strategic partnership to give customers an easy way to automate and manage their homes, called Best Buy Smart Home powered by Vivint. With a nationwide rollout beginning this summer, Best Buy customers will be able to visit one of more than 400 of the chain's large-format stores to consult with a smart home expert, design a comprehensive system, and receive professional installation and monitoring, often within 24 hours.

Guided by in-store experts, customers can select from a suite of leading smart home products from Vivint and other partners-including smart locks, lights, cameras, thermostats and more-and purchase their products upfront or take advantage of special financing. Accompanying service plans include 24/7 professional monitoring with emergency response, always-on cellular connection, 30-day video storage, online and phone support, in-home service and equipment protection. Customers also have the option to select a no-contract service plan. Vivint's smart home platform works with voice assistants, such as Amazon Echo and Google Home, enabling consumers to control their smart home devices with their voice.

"Best Buy is all about helping customers pursue their passions and enrich their lives with the help of technology," said Asheesh Saksena, Chief Strategic Growth Officer at Best Buy. "To deliver on that promise, we work with industry leading partners to curate the best products, services and solutions that address the everyday needs of our customers. Our partnership with Vivint is a perfect example of that strategy."

"At Vivint, our vision from the beginning has been to deliver smart home for the mass market," said Alex Dunn, president of Vivint Smart Home. "Together with Best Buy, we are further encouraging adoption by providing customers with a comprehensive smart home offering and a personalized retail experience."

Best Buy has been a leader in home technology services and products for years. Last year, the company sold more than 55 million connected devices and provided in-home, in-store and online technology services nearly 16 million times.

Vivint Smart Home has more than 1 million customers and has installed more than 15 million smart home devices in North American homes. Recently named the No. 1 smart home services provider in the U.S. by Strategy Analytics, Vivint is also one of Fast Company's World's 50 Most Innovative Companies for 2017.

Vivint and Best Buy were also named the No. 1 and No. 2 Top Smart Home Integrators, respectively, in the 2017 CE Pro 100 List.
