Locate the motion detector and remove the holding screw from the bottom of the motion detector and lift up to remove it from the wall plate.

This device requires one battery (CR123A or equivalent batteries). Note: These batteries may be found in the electronic section of most local department stores.

Slide the motion up into the plate and swing the lower half of the motion down so it sits in place.

Ensure that there are no gaps between the motion and wall plate, and it is securely placed. Then reinsert the holding screw.


Based on the latest in infrared technology, the Vivint motion detector comes with three different mounting brackets and a 90 degree lookdown, ensuring intruders cannot pass by unnoticed. It also communicates directly with the Vivint touchscreen panel, so if the detector is triggered, the panel will connect you to the central monitoring station immediately.

You’ve got questions? We’ve got answers

When I get notified that my alarm has been triggered, how do I find out if it was an actual emergency or a false alarm?

You will need to contact your local police department. However, if the triggered alarm signifies an actual emergency, in most cases the authorities will notify the central monitoring station, which will then contact you.

Why did I get charged a false alarm fee?

Some cities do charge a fee for sending dispatch for a false alarm. If you feel there has been a mistake, you can contact customer support and they will be happy to discuss it with you.

Where are your monitoring stations located?

We have two monitoring stations: one in St. Paul, Minnesota, and one in Provo, Utah. Additionally, all of our customer support representatives are located in the United States. We do not contract with off-shore providers.

Do you monitor 24x7x365?

Yes. We have monitoring staff available at all times, including nights, holidays, and weekends. We also have customer support agents available 24x7x365.

What’s a secondary passcode?

You can create secondary verbal passcodes for family members, relatives, or house sitters. Secondary passcodes can validate a secondary user of your system and also turn off a false alarm. You can add or drop secondary codes at any time, but only the primary passcode can make changes to your account.

Why do I need a verbal passcode?

In case of an emergency, we need to be able to validate that we are talking to you over the Vivint Live voice. That is why we require a verbal passcode. This passcode can also be used to turn off a false alarm. We encourage you to choose a passcode that is personal and easy for you to remember.

How quickly does Vivint respond in an emergency?

We respond to most emergency calls in fewer than 10 seconds.
