What our customers are saying.

I LOVE my Vivint System! As a Mom who recently went back to work, being able to check on the kids gives me peace of mind.


My 90-year-old grandma lives alone and had been falling frequently, unable to call and let someone know. She fell one evening in her living room, hitting her head on the tile. The Ping Camera caught it and we were able to quickly get her the hospital.

Video Quality
There’s no place like home.

Ping gives you a crystal-clear view of your home. Crisp, high-definition video catches every detail while a wide-angle lens opens up entire rooms. Advanced image technology lets you see what you want to see, day or night. It’s the next best thing to being there.

Smart Clips
Don’t miss a move.

See what’s been happening at home, at your convenience. When someone moves into Ping’s field of view, smart motion detection activates recording of 20-second Smart Clips you can watch on demand through your mobile device or Smart Hub panel. Plus, you can choose a specific area for motion detection and set the camera to be more or less sensitive to movement.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I set up recording rules for my Ping camera?

Set up your recording schedules online. Learn how.

What do I do if my recording schedules aren’t working?

If your Ping camera’s schedules are not working, make sure your camera is functioning and the light on the front of the camera is a solid white. Next, check to make sure your schedules are turned on in the “recording schedules” section for your cameras. If the schedules still aren’t working after taking those steps, you may need to delete and recreate your recording schedules.

What is privacy mode?

Privacy mode allows you to temporarily disable your camera’s remote viewing and recording capabilities. While in privacy mode, your camera will display a blue screen on your online account and mobile app.

What if my Ping camera isn’t showing up on my online account or my phone?

Go to the cameras section in your online account center under Custom Actions. If you can’t see any cameras listed, contact our Customer Care team via chat for assistance. If you can see cameras listed there but not on your mobile app, log out and sign in again. The camera should then be visible.

Can I install a new camera or move my old one?

A Vivint Smart Home Professional will install and position your Vivint Ping Cameras as part of your smart home package. After the initial installation, you can move your Ping cameras wherever you like. If you decide to make changes yourself, we suggest you pay special attention to these four points:

  • Camera height — Mount or position cameras according to your preference to catch the action you want to see.

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

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

  • Mounting — Ensure a secure attachment.

How to protect your home with cameras and more.

A complete security system can help protect your home and family from a variety of threats—burglary, intrusion, property theft, vandalism, and house fire or flood—by facilitating quick access to emergency assistance. Vivint Smart Home provides you with a security ecosystem for your whole home—inside and out—as well as an on-call support team to assist you day and night.

Every Vivint Smart Home system includes a one-on-one product consultation, professional installation, and 24/7 customer support and monitoring. The suite of products typically included in a Vivint Smart Home security system includes:

  • Outdoor Camera – Wireless, HD security camera with infrared night vision that gives you on-demand access to a live video feed and sends notifications to your phone when motion is detected around your home.

  • Flood/Freeze Sensors – Protect homes from water damage and pipe-freezing low temperatures by sending mobile notifications when water is present or temperatures drop.

  • Motion Detector – Infrared motion sensor with 90-degree look-down to ensure nothing passes by undetected.

  • Smoke Detector – Uses photoelectric sensing to detect when smoke is present.

  • Door/Window Sensors – Sound an alarm whenever protected doors and windows are opened and can also be used to protect medicine cabinets, gun cabinets, or the door to a child's bedroom.

The Vivint Ping Camera is an invaluable addition to your smart home package. Ping gives you visual coverage inside your home and easy, two-way communication with the people who come and go when you’re away.
