Tips for arming and disarming your security system

Before you jump into all the fantastic things your Vivint Smart Hub can perform, you’ll need to understand how to arm and disarm your system. It’s simple - just adhere to these steps:

  • Press the shield icon on the home screen and swipe to the right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay indicates you will still be present in the home and arms everything excluding interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away means you will be away, and each sensor in the home will arm.
  • To disarm, simply swipe down on the shield icon and type in your PIN.

The Smart Hub will show a message if the system isn’t prepared to arm. To illustrate, an open window or door will urge you to take action. Note that you can still arm the system by following the above steps. You will then confirm you wish to ignore the sensor that isn’t ready.
