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

Wirelessly coupling to sensors and other implements through radio frequencies and the Z-wave communications protocol, the Vivint Smart Hub is the central command interface for your property. You may arm your system, control lights, update the thermostat, and more. When adding a video doorbell, you may even speak to someone standing at your door. The Vivint Smart Hub features cellular capability and a backup battery to ensure reliable performance. It also provides total remote access and control with the Vivint smartphone app.

Here’s an idea of the things you can do:

  • Check live or recorded video streams from your integrated cameras
  • Arm and disarm your system
  • Toggle lights on or off
  • Open or close your garage door
  • Change your smart thermostat settings
  • Speak directly to monitoring professionals

You can do even more with your Vivint Smart Hub in Elizabethtown by implementing schedules or initiating rules. To illustrate, you can have your smart thermostat automatically adjust nightly at a particular time. Or, you can incorporate rules like having your front door unlock when the smoke detector trips.

Tips for arming and disarming your security system

Before you get into all the fantastic things your Vivint Smart Hub can accomplish, you’ll have to understand 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 right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay indicates you will remain in the home and arms all devices except interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away means you will be away, and each sensor in the home will arm.
  • To disarm, just slide down the shield icon and type in your PIN.

The home screen will display a message if the system isn’t ready to arm. For instance, an open door will urge you to act. Keep in mind that you are still able to arm the security system by following the instructions above. You will then have to verify that you would like to bypass the sensor in question.
