  • Close or open your garage door

Steps for arming and disarming your home’s security

Before you delve into all the terrific things your Vivint Smart Hub can accomplish, you’ll have to grasp how to arm and disarm your security. It’s straightforward - just adhere to these steps:

  • Tap the shield icon on the home screen and swipe to the left for “Stay” and right for “Away.”
  • Stay signifies you will remain in your house and arms all sensors besides interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away indicates you will be away, and each sensor in your home will engage.
  • To disarm, simply slide down the shield icon and type in your PIN.

You’ll observe a message if the system isn’t able to arm. For example, an open door will urge you to act. Note that you can still arm your home’s security by adhering to the above steps. You will then need to verify you want to circumvent the sensor that isn’t engaged.

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