Frequently Asked Questions

How do I install a Vivint Door and Window Sensor?

Good news: You don’t have to. All Vivint smart home devices, including Vivint Door and Window Sensors, include professional installation. We’ll make sure you understand the features and functionality of your new sensors and ensure they integrate seamlessly with your Vivint system.

Should I put a Vivint Window Sensor on every window?

Window Sensors are a key component of any home security system. Many starter systems come with a set number of window sensors with the option to add more at additional cost. To get the most protection, a sensor on each window is recommended. When you explore your options with a Vivint system, our professionals can help you determine the right number of window sensors for your home. Then we’ll install them for you. Learn more about how these sensors work.

How does the Vivint Door & Window Sensor work?

Window and Door Sensors use a contact sensor and a magnet. The contact sensor attaches to the stationary window frame and the magnet attaches to the moving part of the window. When your window is opened and contact between these two pieces is broken, the window sensor sends a signal to your control panel and the alarm is triggered. The process is the same for door sensors. Installing door and window alarms is one of the simplest ways to secure your home. Learn more about door sensors.

What kind of door sensors does Vivint use?

Vivint has two kinds of door alarm sensors—the Door and Window Sensor, and the Door Sensor. Both are wireless and highly effective, so whichever you select for your home depends on your individual needs and/or preferences. These door sensors can further be classified by the ways they are placed or installed.
