How can you use the Vivint Smart Hub in Toledo?

Wirelessly connecting to sensors and other implements through radio frequencies and Z-Wave communications, the Vivint Smart Hub is the central command interface for your home. You can disarm or arm your system, program lights, update the thermostat, and more. If incorporating a doorbell camera, you may even speak to whoever’s on your front porch.

  • Switch lights on or off
  • Operate your garage door
  • Adjust your thermostat’s temperature
  • Speak directly to monitoring agents

To illustrate, you could have your smart thermostat adjust automatically each night at a particular time. Or, you can incorporate preferences like having your doors unlock if the smoke detector triggers.

Tips for arming and disarming your home’s security

Before you delve into all the amazing things your Vivint Smart Hub can accomplish, you’ll want to grasp how to arm and disarm your home’s security. It’s straightforward - just adhere to these instructions:

  • Touch the shield icon on the main screen and slide to the right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay signifies you will still be present in the home and arms all sensors excluding interior doors and motion detectors.
  • Away signifies you will be away, and all sensors in the home will engage.
  • To disarm, simply slide the shield icon down and enter your PIN.

You’ll notice a warning if something is stopping the system from arming. For example, an open window will urge you to take action. Note that you are still able to arm your home’s security by using the above steps. You will then have to verify that you would like to ignore the sensor that isn’t engaged.

Add or remove users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Toledo

Although various users can be entered when you first get your system, you may want to add or remove a user at some point. Here are instructions to do so.

  • Press the menu icon (three dots) near the bottom right of the main screen.
  • Tap “Users” and enter your PIN.
  • Touch “Add new user” toward the bottom.
  • Tap “Name,” enter the new user, and press the Next button.
  • If you would like to supply the user remote capability, select email or phone and provide the details to send an request.
