When Severe Weather Hits, Vivint’s There

When Severe Weather Hits, Vivint’s There

This time of year often comes with severe weather, so it is always nice to know that your  Vivint Smart Home system will keep an eye on the weather as well as your home!

Here’s how your panel weather alerts work: When the National Weather Service issues a severe weather alert, you will hear a beeping notification message from your panel warning you and your family about approaching inclement weather like high winds or tornados.

Once the National Weather Service dismisses the severe weather warning, the alert will disappear from your home screen.

To turn off the alerts once the weather has passed, tap on the red envelope in the top right corner. Then tap on the alert to read the message fully. By tapping on the alert, your panel will consider the notification acknowledged and the beeping will stop. Please take any necessary actions to prepare for the severe weather described.
