October 31st represents imagination, whimsy, and of course, that all-important sugar rush. However, this ghoulish occasion can also bring out the reckless abandon in would-be troublemakers, which is why you should be prepared for front door visitors.

Across the United States, goblins and ghouls in tennis shoes come out to trick-or-treat on Halloween night—and sometimes the tricks outnumber the treats. But with the Vivint Doorbell Camera™ and Vivint Playback™, you can be ready to catch any tricksters that come to your door.

When a legion of masked and costumed trick-or-treaters ring your doorbell, Vivint sends a mobile alert to your phone. Before you answer the door, you can check the camera to identify who’s there and make sure no one is planning a trick.

The night vision on your doorbell camera can give you clear footage of your visitors so you won’t have to second-guess whether or not to open your door to them. If you don’t feel like answering the door, you can safely tell them you’re out of candy using the two-way talk feature.

Even if someone doesn’t ring the bell, but chooses instead to hover around, the live video feed records the movement and you can view the footage in your Vivint Sky app. Not only does this recording provide evidence in case crime or vandalism does happen, it is also a great way to capture one-of-a-kind costumes that other family members might miss while out gathering candy.
