How can you use the Vivint Smart Hub in Wichita?

Connecting wirelessly to sensors and other implements with radio frequencies and the Z-wave communications protocol, the Vivint Smart Hub is the command center for your property. You may arm or disarm your system, program lights, update the thermostat, and more. When integrating a doorbell camera, you can even speak to visitors at your front door. The Vivint Smart Hub has a backup battery and cellular functionality for enhanced reliability. It also offers total remote operability through the Vivint smartphone app.

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

  • View current or recorded footage from your linked surveillance cameras
  • Disarm or arm your system
  • Toggle lights on or off
  • Open or close your garage door
  • Modify your smart thermostat settings
  • Speak directly to monitoring agents

You can take convenience to another level with your Vivint Smart Hub in Wichita by setting schedules or creating preferences. For instance, you might have your smart thermostat automatically adjust every night at a particular time. Or, you can add rules like having your doors unlock if the fire alarm goes off.

Tips for arming and disarming your system

Before you get into all the terrific things your Vivint Smart Hub can accomplish, you’ll need to grasp how to arm and disarm your system. It’s straightforward - just follow these instructions:

  • Press the shield icon on the home screen and slide to the left for “Stay” and right for “Away.”
  • Stay signifies you will remain in your house and arms all devices excluding interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away signifies you will be away, and all sensors in the home will activate.
  • To disarm, all you need to do is slide the shield icon down and input your PIN.

You’ll notice a notification if something is blocking the system from arming. For instance, an open window will prompt you to act. It’s worth noting that you can still arm the security system by using the above steps. You will then have to verify that you wish to bypass the sensor that isn’t ready.

Adding users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Wichita

Although multiple users can be programmed when you first get your system, you may want to add another user in the future. Here’s how to do it.

  • Press the menu icon (three dots) on the bottom right corner of the welcome screen.
  • Press “Users” and enter your PIN.
  • Select “Add new user” near the bottom.
  • Press “Name,” provide the the name you want to use, and hit the Next button.
  • If you would like to supply the user remote capability, select email or phone and submit the details to dispatch an invite.
  • Touch Next and then enter a PIN for the new user.
  • To remove a user, simply proceed to the menu, touch users, pick the user you want to delete, and then tap “Delete User.”
