Set Up Notifications

System notifications are the key to knowing what your system is up to. You can be notified of events like your system being armed or your alarm going off. You can also receive sensor notifications telling you when doors or windows are opened or when your garage door is left open past a certain hour.

To set up notifications for your Vivint system, complete the following steps:

1Log in to the online account center
2Click 'Control my home'
3Choose the 'Notifications' tab
4Click 'Add a new notification'
5This will take you to a list of notifications
6The system will ask you what type of event you want to be notified about, and you need to choose either Events (alarm) or Sensors (if something is opened)
7This will take you to a new menu where you can pick which event or sensor you want notifications for (e.g., arm or disarm, alarm, etc.)
8If you have chosen a sensor, choose when you want a notification. For example: when the sensor is opened, closed, or left open after a specified time
9Choose who will be notified
10Click 'Save' to save your notification
11After you click save, you will be taken back to the main navigation where you will be able to see all your notification rules and a toggle to turn them on or off, edit them, or delete them
