Arm/Disarm & Emergency Services
Your SkyControl panel is the hub of the Vivint system in your home. One of the most basic, day to day functions you will perform on the panel is arming and disarming your system. Below are instructions on how to arm and disarm your system and also activate the emergency services.
1The home button of your SkyControl will be green if the system is ready to arm, and off if it’s not ready to arm. The system is not ready to arm when there is a door or window open in the home
2Press the shield and drag left for 'Staying' or drag right for 'Leaving'
Leaving: every sensor in your home, including motion detectors, will be activated. Any movement or opening doors and windows will trigger an alarm
Staying: all sensors are activated except for interior sensors like motion detectors or interior doors. This allows you to move freely around your home, but will trigger an alarm if any perimeter point is accessed
3To disarm, slide the shield down and enter your 4-digit PIN
1Press the “+” button from the front of the panel
2Press and hold the emergency button you need for at least two seconds. To learn about what will happen in an alarm event, click here
