Let’s face it, we all have a lot going on in our day-to-day lives. The more we can automate small tasks to make our lives a little easier, the more time we have for what’s really important.
If you’re a Vivint customer, you already know we provide peace of mind with our award-winning security service. But did you know your devices can perform custom actions to make your life even more convenient?
What are custom actions?
Custom actions are simple, customizable rules your Vivint system will follow that you can set up with just a few taps in the Vivint app. For example, you can have your system automatically lock your front door whenever your security system is armed. Depending on your setup and what products you have installed in your home, the possibilities for customization are endless.
You can set up your own custom actions by opening the Vivint app, tapping the menu icon in the upper-left corner, and then tapping “Custom Actions.” If you experience any issues, please contact Vivint customer support.
Vivint has provided some recommended customizations to get you started, but you can also create your own. To help you better understand what’s possible within your system, we’ve shared the 10 most popular custom actions among current Vivint customers.
1. Notification when system is armed
Have an authorized user on your account? With this custom action, you will receive a notification via the Vivint mobile app whenever they arm the system as “staying” or “leaving.” This way you always know when your home is secure.
2. Notification when system is disarmed
Like the previous action, this is a great way to stay up to date with the status of your alarm system. If an authorized user has disarmed your system, you'll be notified right away.
3. Notification when a person is detected
4. Record when a door is opened
With Vivint Door Sensors, you can set a custom action so that your cameras will record a video clip whenever a door opens.
5. Notification when a door is opened
A further customization on the previous action, rather than recording a video clip when a door is opened, you’ll receive a notification via the Vivint mobile app.
