How can I obtain a certificate for my home insurance?
Many insurance companies will give you a discount just for having a security and home automation system installed. However, they often require a certificate proving the installation has taken place. To obtain this certificate, simply download the certificate from your online account center. Once you log in, go to the 'Resources' tab and click on 'Insurance Certificate' in the top right corner. You can download the certificate there and email it to your insurance agent or print the certificate.
Can I obtain the certificate before my installation date?
No. Installation must take place before we issue a certificate.
Do I need an alarm permit for my Vivint system?
It depends. The easiest way to know if you need an alarm permit or not is to search your local government’s website. If your city does require a permit, almost all cities make these forms available online. However, as a courtesy, you can call customer support and we will mail your form to you, if you need one. If you get the form through us, the process will take between 7 and 10 working days.
How much does a permit cost?
The price of a permit varies depending on your municipality. Visit your local government website for more information.
When I get notified that my alarm has been triggered, how do I find out if it was an actual emergency or a false alarm?
You will need to contact your local police department. However, in most cases, if the alarm that is triggered signifies an actual emergency, the authorities will notify the Central Monitoring Station that will then contact you.
Are your call centers accredited?
Yes. Our call center is CSAA Certified as a Five Diamond Central Station. It has also been identified by the International Customer Management Institute (ICMI) as one of the top 50 call centers in all of North America. As a company, we received the J.D.
