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

Connecting wirelessly to sensors and other implements through radio frequencies and Z-Wave communications, the Vivint Smart Hub is the command center for your home. You may arm your system, operate lights, set the temperature, and more. When adding a doorbell camera, you may even chat with whoever’s standing at your door. The Vivint Smart Hub has built-in cellular connectivity and a battery backup to ensure reliable performance. It also offers total remote operation with the Vivint mobile app.

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

  • View live or saved footage from any integrated surveillance cameras
  • Arm and disarm your system
  • Toggle lights on or off
  • Open or close your garage door
  • Adjust your thermostat’s temperature
  • Talk directly to monitoring professionals

You can boost convenience even more with your Vivint Smart Hub in Gulfport by implementing schedules or initiating preferences. To illustrate, you could have your smart thermostat adjust automatically each night at a specified time. Or, you can set rules like having your entrances unlock when the fire alarm triggers.

Steps for arming and disarming your home’s security

Before you delve into all the terrific things your Vivint Smart Hub can perform, you’ll need to grasp how to arm and disarm your security. It’s easy - just follow these steps:

  • Press the shield icon on the main screen and slide to the left for “Stay” and right for “Away.”
  • Stay indicates you will be in your house and arms all sensors besides interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away signifies you will be leaving, and each sensor in the home will activate.
  • To disarm, simply slide the shield icon down and enter your PIN.

The home screen will display a notification if the system isn’t able to arm. For instance, an open window will cue you to take action. Keep in mind that you may still arm the security system by following the above steps. You will then confirm you wish to ignore the sensor that isn’t ready.

Add or remove users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Gulfport

Despite the fact that many users can be entered when you first get your system, you may want to add or remove a user at some point. Here’s how it’s done.

  • Press the menu icon (three dots) on the bottom right corner of the main screen.
  • Tap “Users” and type in your PIN.
  • Choose “Add new user” near the bottom.
  • Press “Name,” type in the new user, and hit the Next button.
  • If you wish to provide the user remote capability, choose phone or email and submit the information to dispatch an request.
  • Choose Next and then establish a PIN for the new user.
