Vivint and ADT in legal battle over patent infringement

Provo, Ut and Boca Raton, Fl

On February 25th 2021, Vivint Smart Home, Inc. released a statement announcing that it had filed a patent infringement lawsuit against ADT in the United States District Court for the District of Utah.   

ADT has now responded with its own comments and released a statement saying, "ADT believes the claims asserted by Vivint are completely without merit and intends to vigorously defend against the lawsuit."

In the complaint, Vivint asserts that ADT infringes six of Vivint’s U.S. patents related to security and smart home technology. As one of the premier providers of smart home technology, Vivint is recognised throughout the industry for its products, innovation and customer satisfaction. Vivint has more than 300 issued patents related to its proprietary technology.

The Company issued the following statement:

“Vivint invests millions of dollars to develop best-in-class products and services for its customers, as well as to patent and protect this technology. We will vigorously protect and defend our unique intellectual property and innovations.”

Vivint pioneered connected devices for the home in 2010 to offer smart home features to its security customers. Vivint developed and launched its own proprietary platform in 2014 to offer customers a fully integrated smart home security system.

Vivint is seeking damages for ADT’s infringement of the asserted patents."
