What can the Vivint Smart Hub in Fort Worth do for you?

Wirelessly linking to components with radio wave transmissions and the Z-wave communications protocol, the Vivint Smart Hub is the central command interface for your home. You can arm or disarm your system, operate lights, set the temperature, and more. When integrating a video doorbell, you may even speak to someone standing at your door. The Vivint Smart Hub includes built-in cellular connectivity and a backup battery for added reliability. It also offers convenient remote operation through the Vivint mobile app.

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

  • Review live or recorded video from all connected security cameras
  • Arm and disarm your system
  • Turn lights on or off
  • Open or close your garage door
  • Modify your thermostat’s temperature
  • Communicate directly to monitoring professionals

You can do even more with your Vivint Smart Hub in Fort Worth by setting schedules or establishing rules. To illustrate, you could have your smart thermostat adjust automatically every night at a particular time. Or, you can set preferences like having your entrances unlock when the smoke alarm trips.

Quick guide to arming and disarming your home’s security

Before you jump 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 easy - just abide by these steps:

  • Tap the shield icon on the main screen and swipe to the right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay means you will still be present in the home and arms all sensors excluding interior doors and motion detectors.
  • Away indicates you will be away, and all sensors in your home will engage.
  • To disarm, simply slide the shield icon down and type in your PIN.

You’ll see a notification if something is blocking the system from arming. For example, an open door will prompt you to act. Keep in mind that you can still arm the security system by adhering to the instructions above. You will then need to verify you wish to bypass the sensor that isn’t ready.

Adding users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Fort Worth

Even though many users can be entered when your system is installed, you will probably want to add another user at some point. Here’s how to do it.

  • Tap the menu icon (three dots) on the bottom right of the home screen.
  • Press “Users” and input your PIN.
  • Touch “Add new user” near the bottom.
  • Select “Name,” type in the new user, and hit the Next button.
  • If you would like to provide the user remote capability, select email or phone and enter the details to dispatch an request.
  • Hit Next and then create a PIN for this new user.
  • To take out a user, simply proceed to the menu, press users, select the user you would like to get rid of, and then tap “Delete User.”
