Vivint Smart Home App: The Complete Guide

There are plenty of benefits to smart home technology—energy efficiency and savings, integration among devices, and greater accessibility, to name a few.

But many will agree that one of the biggest benefits of a smart home is the ability to control your devices and stay connected to your home no matter where you go.

With a Vivint Smart Home system, our smart home app is the tool that makes this possible.

With the Vivint Smart Home app, you can control your home from anywhere.

What is the Vivint Smart Home app?

Much of the technology used in smart homes today is app-based, allowing you to control your smart home devices from your smartphone.

Each of your smart devices are connected to your home’s WiFi network and smart hub, which can then be accessed remotely via apps on your mobile device.

If you have standalone devices, they each require a separate app in order to control them. When your smart home devices are part of a complete smart home system, like Vivint, you can manage your security system and each of the devices within your smart home from one central app.

What can the Vivint Smart Home app do?

The Vivint Smart Home app boasts a number of features and advanced functionality:

  • Complete system control from one place. The app provides centralized control of your entire smart home system from a single location, including your security system, thermostat, locks, cameras, and lights.
  • View live and recorded video. Through your app, you can also view your home’s camera footage. Log into the app any time and view live feeds of your outdoor or indoor cameras, or view the recorded footage at your convenience.
  • System alerts straight to your phone. You can receive system alerts on the app that will alert you to specific events, like a door left unlocked, a smoke alarm, or a security system breach.
  • Two-way talk feature. You can communicate directly with the 24/7 security monitoring center as well as through smart devices like the Vivint Ping Camera or your Vivint Doorbell Camera Pro™, with the two-way talk feature.
  • Custom routines. To personalize your system, you can also set up custom routines right inside the app. For example, you can automatically lock your doors at a specific time or disarm your security system when you unlock your front door.
  • Multiple user accounts. Everyone in the family can have access to the app with individual user accounts. You can also create permissions and set limits for specific users, which is particularly handy if you don’t want your kids to fiddle with the thermostat or change notification settings.

It makes life easier

Have you ever thought about how much easier life would be if you didn't have to think about or remember certain things? Enter the Vivint Smart Home app. You can create custom actions within the app that take care of things around the house for you.

For example, you can set your lights to automatically turn on when you unlock your front door (no more fumbling in the dark for the light switch when your arms are full). Or, you can set a rule that arms your security system and turns down your thermostat when you lock your front door. Whatever action around the house would make life easier for you, chances are good your app can help.

It connects all your devices

Unlike standalone smart home devices, the Vivint Smart Home app helps connect all of your smart home devices together, so you don't have to open up a separate app for every device.

Part of a Vivint Smart Home package includes professional installation. When our Smart Home Pros install your system, they'll make sure everything works together as it should. They'll also help you set up the app on your phone, so you'll know exactly what it can do and how you can use it.

It gives you peace of mind

Above all, being able to access and control your home no matter where you go gives you a certain peace of mind you wouldn't otherwise have. So whether you want to check in on your kids, make sure you locked the front door, or adjust your home's temperatures, we've got you covered.

Because it's part of a Vivint Smart Home security system, the app also lets you communicate with Vivint's 24/7 monitoring team. So if you're away from home and your smoke alarm goes off or your security system is triggered, our Smart Home Specialists are there to help, whether it's requesting emergency services to your home or silencing a false alarm.
