What can the Vivint Smart Hub in Fayetteville do for you?

Wirelessly connecting to sensors and other implements via radio frequencies and the Z-wave communications protocol, the Vivint Smart Hub is the command center for your home. You can disarm or arm your system, program lights, set the temperature, and more. If integrating a doorbell camera, you may even speak to someone standing at your door.

Here are some of the tasks you can execute:

  • Review live or saved footage from all integrated surveillance cameras
  • Arm and disarm your home security
  • Switch lights on or off
  • Operate your garage door
  • Modify your thermostat’s temperature
  • Communicate directly to monitoring professionals

For example, you can have your smart thermostat change automatically nightly at a specified time. Or, you can set preferences like having your entrances unlock if the smoke detector triggers.

Tips for arming and disarming your security system

Before you get into all the fantastic things your Vivint Smart Hub can do, you’ll need to understand how to arm and disarm your system. It’s simple - just adhere to these instructions:

  • Press the shield icon on the home screen and swipe to the right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay signifies you will remain in your house and arms all sensors except interior doors and motion detectors.
  • Away signifies you will be gone, and all sensors in the home will arm.
  • To disarm, just slide the shield icon down and enter your PIN.

The main screen will show a warning if something is stopping the system from arming. To illustrate, an open door will cue you to act. Keep in mind that you are still able to arm the system by adhering to the instructions above. You will then confirm you wish to bypass the sensor that isn’t engaged.

  • Touch the menu icon (three dots) on the bottom right of the main screen.
  • Touch “Users” and input your PIN.
  • Choose “Add new user” near the bottom.
  • Select “Name,” type in the the name you want to use, and tap the Next button.
