Steps for arming and disarming your system

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

  • Touch the shield icon on the home screen and swipe to the left for “Stay” and right for “Away.”
  • Stay indicates you will be in the home and arms all devices excluding interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away means you will be gone, and everything in your home will engage.
  • To disarm, simply slide down the shield icon and input your PIN.

You’ll see a message if something is stopping the system from arming. For example, an open window or door will urge you to take action. Note that you can still arm your home’s security by following the instructions above. You will then need to verify you want to ignore the sensor in question.
