The Utah Genius awards program recognizes the people and companies
behind the innovations driving Utah’s economy. As the top patent company
in Utah, Vivint had a total of 74 corporate patents issued by the U.S.
Patent & Trade Office in 2018. The patents span technology innovation
across Vivint’s smart home platform and services.

Three Vivint executives are also on the Utah Genius list of Top 20

  • Jeremy Warren, Chief Technology Officer, second place with 33 patents
    – Warren drives Vivint’s technology roadmap, partnerships and
    strategy, and has been responsible for product engineering across
    hardware, software and analytics.
  • Jim Nye, Chief Product Operations Officer, fourth place with 22
    patents – Nye is responsible for new product and technology
    development, including overseeing product requirements, testing and
    rollouts, as well as managing key business partnerships.
  • Matt Eyring, Executive Vice President, ninth place with 16 patents –
    Eyring created and launched the Vivint Innovation Center in 2013, a
    key factor for the company’s securing the No. 22 position on Fast
    list of The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies in 2017.

“Given that Vivint Smart Home had only one patent in its portfolio five
years ago, we are especially proud to be recognized as the patent leader
in the state for 2018,” said Eyring. “Vivint has made technology and
innovation a top corporate priority, and this award — along with the
extremely positive market reception of our latest products — reflects
our focus.”
