VueVille is all about DIY home security and home automation – we strongly believe that you get a more flexible system at a much better price if you go DIY. What do we mean by DIY? Anything that is not a monitored solution for which you have to pay a monthly or yearly fee, I am talking about systems such as Frontpoint and ADT.

As we added more and more gadgets to our smart home, we kept adding our thoughts and experiences to build VueVille up to what it is today.
