Many of our customers expressed interest in being able to trigger an alarm from the app, and we agreed! If you open your Vivint Smart Home app and look in the top right corner, you’ll notice a new feature: an alarm trigger. This gives customers even more control of their smart home and the ability to manually trigger an alarm from anywhere. For example, if you are notified by your Vivint app that the doorbell camera has detected a visitor and what you see concerns you, you can trigger the alarm inside your home from wherever you are.

When you trigger the alarm, a Vivint Monitoring Specialist will call you in addition to your home alarm going off, and you will be asked if you’d like the police to be dispatched.

If you accidentally press the alarm icon, don’t worry—just select “Cancel” and the alarm won’t activate.
