The Vivint Smart Hub is the center of your home security system as it connects your locks, security sensors, cameras, and thermostats into a single cohesive system. This easy-to-use, 7-inch color touchscreen puts you in complete control of your Lake Havasu home’s security and automation. See what it can do and explore suggestions to get started.

How can you use the Vivint Smart Hub in Lake Havasu?

Connecting wirelessly to devices with radio wave transmissions and the Z-wave communications protocol, the Vivint Smart Hub is the command center for your residence. You may arm your system, operate lights, update the thermostat, and more. When adding a video doorbell, you can even chat with someone standing at your door. The Vivint Smart Hub includes built-in cellular connectivity and a backup battery for enhanced reliability. It also gives you complete remote access and control with the Vivint smartphone app.

Here’s an idea of the duties you can perform:

  • View real-time or recorded footage from your connected security cameras
  • Disarm or arm your system
  • Turn lights on or off
  • Operate your garage door
  • Adjust your thermostat’s temperature
  • Communicate directly to your monitoring center

You can get even more creative with your Vivint Smart Hub in Lake Havasu by programming schedules or establishing preferences. For instance, you can have your smart thermostat automatically adjust nightly at a particular time. Or, you can add preferences like having your doors unlock when the smoke alarm trips.

Steps for arming and disarming your system

Before you delve into all the fantastic things your Vivint Smart Hub can do, you’ll have to know how to arm and disarm your security. It’s simple - just follow these instructions:

  • Press the shield icon on the home screen and slide to the left for “Stay” and right for “Away.”
  • Stay means you will remain in your house and arms all devices except interior doors and motion detectors.
  • Away indicates you will be gone, and each sensor in the home will engage.
  • To disarm, all you need to do is slide down the shield icon and input your PIN.

The main screen will post a message if the system isn’t prepared to arm. To illustrate, an open window will urge you to take action. Note that you are still able to arm the security system by adhering to the steps above. You will then confirm you wish to ignore the sensor in question.

How to add or remove users to your Vivint Smart Hub in Lake Havasu

Even though multiple users can be entered during the initial installation, you will probably want to add another user down the road. Here’s how to do it.

  • Tap the menu icon (three dots) on the bottom right-hand side of the home screen.
  • Tap “Users” and enter your PIN.
  • Select “Add new user” toward the bottom.
  • Tap “Name,” enter the the name you want to use, and press the Next button.
  • If you wish to give the user remote functionality, select phone or email and enter the info to send an request.
  • Choose Next and then establish a PIN for this new user.
  • To remove a user, simply go to the menu, press users, choose the user you wish to delete, and then select “Delete User.”
