Great design, great concept, great execution!!!

The app itself is very useful and comes in handy all the time. I have the smart lock, the smart doorbell, and 2 cameras and they work perfectly. The cameras give me good quality pictures and video plus there is less than a 1 second delay with the live video when monitoring from my phone. The motion-activated sensor on the doorbell works very well during the day, evening, or night even when the front porch light is off. The microphone and speaker on the doorbell makes it easy and safe to communicate with people I don’t know who approach my door. If I see someone trying to break in from the camera, it gives me the option to take a live picture from my phone and it automatically records movement picked up by the cameras. The app gives me notifications without delay for everything that happens inside and around my home whether it’s the doorbell being rung, the door being opened, motion from the cameras, my alarm system being armed and disarmed, or even my door being locked and unlocked. They really thought of everything to give you the maximum protection against threats or otherwise. I highly recommend Vivint for your home security and the Vivint app for easy access and extra insurance for the security of your home and the people you live with. (P.S. the alarm noise is REALLY, REALLY LOUD!!)

Smart home works flawlessly

First let me say I was reluctant to change over to Vivint security I’ve had their solar service for aprox 5 years and love it, now back to smart home i was a 16 year ADT customer and to be honest I can’t complain about monitoring service they are on point but as far as sales people are a bunch of liars you would think each time you renewed you would have up to date equipment or they would do more for being a loyal customer but not unless you call to cancel they want to offer you the best I don’t play those kind of games, so Vivint after coming to my home many times I decided to cut the cord with ADT and I can say I don’t regret decision love their up to date equipment I got more, a lot more for the same monthly service I was paying ADT for their plane Jane equipment without asking for more
ADT’s pulse app is so laggy to connect on smartphone annoying Vivint on the other hand connects flawlessly and fast also love all the extra smart home gadgets I had installed couldn’t be happier System working awesome
Thanks Vivint

I’m losing my patience

I’ve intentionally held back from leaving a review for months just so I could fully evaluate this app. I got their service in January. So, now let me share my experience. The app and cameras go offline every 1-2 hours per day. I’m very tech savvy, but my experience thus far takes the cake. I’m not impressed and I spend more time I. The phone troubleshooting the issue. Only to discover that I end up with a solution vs the reps. You guys have to hire a more competent staff and fix this app!!! Goodness, it’s so unstable. I can’t even look at the live view after updating to the percentage buffer when the video is loading via my doorbell. I met with constant error messages. Do more testing or get better beta testers to ensure the app will work before releasing it. This is ridiculous. I’m beyond annoyed at this point!!! 😤

Update 11/2

I don’t understand why you all would remove the ability to reset the panel from the phone. It was helpful having that feature. Now if the panel is down and I’m checking my home from the phone. Everyday I have to call you all to fix it because the panel goes offline every single day. Stop removing things and focus on making the app experience more stable. Apparently your beta testers and the app developers need to do a better job before releasing these updates because the app becomes more and more useless every release.
