How can you benefit from the Vivint Smart Hub in Sacramento?

Wirelessly connecting to devices with radio wave transmissions and the Z-wave communications protocol, the Vivint Smart Hub is the command center for your residence. You may disarm or arm your system, control lights, set the temperature, and more. If adding a doorbell camera, you may even speak to visitors at your front door. The Vivint Smart Hub features a backup battery and cellular functionality for added reliability. It also offers convenient remote access and control with the Vivint cell phone app.

Here’s a sample of the things you can do:

  • View real-time or saved video from all integrated security cameras
  • Arm or disarm your home security
  • Turn lights on or off
  • Operate your garage door
  • Modify your thermostat’s temperature
  • Speak directly to monitoring professionals

You can boost convenience even more with your Vivint Smart Hub in Sacramento by setting schedules or creating preferences. To illustrate, you can have your smart thermostat automatically adjust every night at a particular time. Or, you can set preferences like having your entrances unlock if the fire alarm goes off.

Tips for arming and disarming your system

Before you delve into all the amazing things your Vivint Smart Hub can perform, you’ll want to know how to arm and disarm your system. It’s easy - just adhere to these steps:

  • Tap the shield icon on the main screen and slide to the left for “Stay” and right for “Away.”
  • Stay indicates you will be inside your home and arms all devices except interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away signifies you will be leaving, and all sensors in the home will arm.
  • To disarm, just swipe down on the shield icon and type in your PIN.

You’ll notice a warning if something is preventing the system from arming. For example, an open window or door will prompt you to act. Note that you are still able to arm your home’s security by adhering to the steps above. You will then confirm you would like to circumvent the sensor in question.

How to add or remove users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Sacramento

Despite the fact that multiple users can be programmed during the initial installation, you will likely want to add or remove a user down the road. Here’s how you can.

  • Tap the menu icon (three dots) at the bottom right-hand side of the welcome screen.
  • Press “Users” and input your PIN.
  • Select “Add new user” near the bottom.
  • Tap “Name,” enter the user’s name, and press the Next button.
  • If you wish to provide the user remote capability, select email or phone and enter the details to send an request.
