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

Wirelessly linking to components with radio wave transmissions and Z-Wave communications, the Vivint Smart Hub is the central command interface for your residence. You can arm or disarm your system, program lights, change thermostat settings, and more. If adding a video doorbell, you can even speak to visitors on your front porch. The Vivint Smart Hub features a backup battery and cellular capability for enhanced reliability. It also gives you convenient remote access and control via the Vivint mobile app.

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

  • View live or recorded video from any linked cameras
  • Disarm or arm your home’s security
  • Switch lights on or off
  • Close or open your garage door
  • Modify your smart thermostat settings
  • Speak directly to your monitoring center

You can boost convenience even more with your Vivint Smart Hub in Fargo by implementing schedules or establishing rules. For example, you can have your smart thermostat adjust automatically each night at a particular time. Or, you can add rules like having your front door unlock when the smoke detector goes off.

Quick guide to arming and disarming your security system

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

  • Touch the shield icon on the main screen and swipe to the right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay means you will be in your house and arms all sensors besides interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away indicates you will be gone, and everything in the home will activate.
  • To disarm, all you need to do is slide down the shield icon and type in your PIN.

The home screen will post a message if the system isn’t able to arm. For instance, an open window will prompt you to take action. Keep in mind that you are still able to arm your home’s security by following the above steps. You will then have to verify that you wish to ignore the sensor that isn’t engaged.

How to add or remove users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Fargo

Despite the fact that multiple users can be entered when your system is installed, you will likely want to add another user down the road. Here are instructions to do so.

  • Touch the menu icon (three dots) on the bottom right of the home screen.
  • Press “Users” and input your PIN.
  • Choose “Add new user” toward the bottom.
  • Press “Name,” type in the the name you want to use, and hit the Next button.
  • If you would like to provide the user remote capability, select email or phone and submit the details to dispatch an invite.
  • Hit Next and then create a PIN for the new user.
  • To take out a user, just navigate to the menu, tap users, pick the user you want to delete, and then select “Delete User.”
