What our customers are saying.

The Outdoor Camera we had installed provides a sense of security and comfort. Knowing Vivint protects my home when we’re not there makes a world of difference to us!


Our neighborhood was hit by a group of thieves breaking into vehicles on our street. The footage captured by Vivint's amazing 1080p cameras was used to arrest them. A great investment and paid for itself within first month.

Smart Design
Built to last.

The Vivint Outdoor Camera features a discreet design, all-weather construction and high-tech function. Its low-profile and sturdy build make it less noticeable and less vulnerable to vandalism. And coupled with the Vivint Smart Home app you can get a real-time glimpse of your home with just a few taps on your phone.

HD Video
Down to the last detail.

A security camera is only as good as its recordings, and poor-quality video means poor-quality surveillance. The Vivint Outdoor Camera features 1080p HD resolution, so recordings are crisp and clear—not the pixelated blurs you might get with another outdoor cam. High-quality images make it easy to identify exactly who or what is on your property.

Monitor Movement
Catch all the action.

Whenever something moves within the outdoor camera’s field of view, built-in motion detectors activate 20-second auto-recordings and save them as Vivint Smart Clips. Watch clips at your convenience, or create custom alerts to notify you about activity around your home through your hub or app.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to install home security cameras.

Many of today's IP-based home security cameras can be installed, placed, and configured by homeowners, without the need to hire a contractor. With Vivint home security cameras, the convenience of professional installation by Smart Home Pros is included with your package. But, once you have security cameras already installed, you may want to make small changes, such as relocating cameras at a later date. If you decide to make changes yourself, please we suggest you pay special attention to these four points:

  • Camera height — Mount cameras well out of reach to prevent tampering.

  • Signal strength — Make sure camera placement is within your WiFi range.

  • Power supply routing — The closer to the power source, the better.

  • Mounting — Take care to ensure a secure and weatherproof attachment.

How does an outdoor camera improve home security?

An outdoor camera can give you an overall view of your property, giving you a greater sense of security and understanding about what happens outside your home. It also helps you keep watch for areas and activity that make your home vulnerable, such as:  

  • Barns and sheds on the edges of your property.

  • Areas where animals might be entering and causing damage.

  • Suspicious outside activity or traffic.

  • Rarely accessed entrances, like basement doors.

  • Monitoring your vehicles and other items stored outdoors to prevent theft or vandalism.

  • Seeing who is at the door before you open it.
