Tips for arming and disarming your home’s security

Before you get into all the amazing things your Vivint Smart Hub can accomplish, you’ll need to understand how to arm and disarm your home’s security. It’s easy - just adhere to these instructions:

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

You’ll see a notification if the system isn’t able to arm. To illustrate, an open door will urge you to take action. Keep in mind that you are still able to arm the system by using the above steps. You will then need to verify you wish to bypass the sensor that isn’t ready.

  • Touch the menu icon (three dots) on the bottom right corner of the home screen.
  • Tap “Users” and input your PIN.
  • Touch “Add new user” near the bottom.
  • Press “Name,” enter the user’s name, and tap the Next button.
  • If you would like to supply the user remote capability, choose phone or email and submit the info to send an request.
