touchscreen panel batteries


There’s never been a better time to change the batteries around your house—including the ones in your Vivint touchscreen panel. Read on for simple instructions on how to do it:

  1. Use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw from the top of your panel.
  2. Pull the front of the panel from the mounting plate to expose the interior circuitry.
  3. Unplug the old battery (go here to view a picture).
  4. Detach the old battery from the panel.
  5. Insert the new battery in the same location (our touchscreen panel takes a Batt 1 rechargeable batteries pack).
  6. Plug in the new battery.
  7. Replace the front of the panel to the mounting plate and re-secure the screw at the top of the panel with a screwdriver.

And that’s it! If you have trouble getting a hold of the right battery for your panel, you can call our Customer Support department at 800.216.5232 and have a battery sent directly to your house for $25.

    Where is the battery located is it in the control pannel or the control box in the closet.

    You might want to tell you tech support people about this page. I called today to have a battery sent and I was told the battery never needed replacing because it was rechargeable. Absolute nonsense. And she wouldn’t send me a battery.
