Quick guide to arming and disarming your security system

Before you get into all the amazing things your Vivint Smart Hub can perform, you’ll need to grasp how to arm and disarm your security. It’s easy - just adhere to these instructions:

  • Tap the shield icon on the home screen and slide to the right for “Away” and left for “Stay.”
  • Stay signifies you will still be present inside your home and arms everything excluding interior doors and motion sensors.
  • Away means you will be leaving, and all sensors in your home will arm.
  • To disarm, just slide the shield icon down and enter your PIN.

You’ll see a message if the system isn’t prepared to arm. For instance, an open window will cue you to take action. It’s worth noting that you may still arm the system by using the instructions above. You will then need to verify you would like to bypass the sensor that isn’t ready.
