At the heart of your home’s security, the Vivint Smart Hub connects your locks, security sensors, cameras, and thermostats into one cohesive system. This easy-to-use, 7-inch color touchscreen puts you in total charge of your Duluth home’s automation and security. Get a better idea of what it can do and check out tips to get started.

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

Wirelessly coupling to components through radio wave transmissions and Z-Wave communications, the Vivint Smart Hub is the command center for your residence. You can arm or disarm your system, control lights, update the thermostat, and more. If adding a video doorbell, you may even chat with whoever’s on your front porch. The Vivint Smart Hub has cellular functionality and a backup battery for enhanced reliability. It also provides total remote operability with the Vivint smartphone app.

Here’s a sample of the tasks you can carry out:

  • Check current or saved footage from your integrated cameras
  • Arm and disarm your home security
  • Toggle lights on or off
  • Operate your garage door
  • Adjust your thermostat’s temperature
  • Talk directly to monitoring agents

You can get even more creative with your Vivint Smart Hub in Duluth by programming schedules or creating preferences. To illustrate, you might have your smart thermostat automatically adjust nightly at a specified time. Or, you can add preferences like having your doors unlock whenever the smoke alarm trips.

Tips for arming and disarming your system

Before you delve into all the fantastic things your Vivint Smart Hub can perform, you’ll want to know how to arm and disarm your system. It’s simple - just follow these instructions:

  • Press the shield icon on the main screen and slide to the right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay indicates you will remain inside your home and arms everything besides interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away means you will be gone, and each sensor in your home will arm.
  • To disarm, just slide down the shield icon and type in your PIN.

You’ll notice a warning if the system isn’t prepared to arm. For instance, an open window or door will prompt you to act. Keep in mind that you are still able to arm your home’s security by adhering to the instructions above. You will then need to verify you wish to circumvent the sensor that isn’t ready.

Adding users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Duluth

Although multiple users can be programmed during the initial installation, you may want to add an additional user at some point. Here’s how it’s done.

  • Touch the menu icon (three dots) at the bottom right-hand side of the welcome screen.
  • Press “Users” and input your PIN.
  • Touch “Add new user” near the bottom.
  • Press “Name,” provide the the name you want to use, and press the Next button.
  • If you wish to supply the user remote functionality, choose email or phone and submit the information to dispatch an invite.
  • Hit Next and then establish a PIN for the new user.
  • To remove a user, simply navigate to the menu, touch users, choose the user you wish to delete, and then press “Delete User.”
